SUPPLEMENTAL READING:

 

The SEPECAT Jaguar is an Anglo-French jet attack aircraft

originally used by the British Royal Air Force

and the French Air Force in the close air support

and nuclear strike role.

It is still in service with the Indian Air Force.

   

Originally conceived in the 1960s as a jet trainer

with a light ground attack capability,

the requirement for the aircraft soon changed to include supersonic performance,

reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike roles.

A carrier-based variant was also planned for French Navy service,

but this was cancelled in favour of the cheaper¬†Dassault Super √Čtendard.

The aircraft were manufactured by SEPECAT

(Soci√©t√© Europ√©enne de Production de l’avion Ecole de Combat et d’Appui Tactique),

a joint venture between Breguet and the British Aircraft Corporation,

one of the first major joint Anglo-French military aircraft programmes.

    

The Jaguar was exported to India, Oman, Ecuador and Nigeria.

The aircraft was used in numerous conflicts and military operations

in Mauritania, Chad, Iraq, Bosnia, and Pakistan,

as well as providing a ready nuclear delivery platform

for the United Kingdom, France, and India

throughout the latter half of the Cold War and beyond.

In the Gulf War, the Jaguar was praised for its reliability

and was a valuable coalition resource.

The aircraft served with the French Air Force

as the main strike/attack aircraft until 1 July 2005,

and with the Royal Air Force until the end of April 2007.

It was replaced by the Panavia Tornado

and the Eurofighter Typhoon in the RAF

and the Dassault Rafale in the French Air Force.
