Which Mk. are they? What is their armament? What is their date of entry into service?

The single seater is a GR variant - it has the reconnaissance pod on the centre pylon containing cameras & linescan. The bombs on the inner pylons look like 1000lbs and the outer stores are a Matra chaff/flare dispenser (starboard wing) and and ECM pod (port wing). The over wing weapons are Sidewinders.

The trainer version looks to be carrying a long range fuel tank.
