Born out of Anglo-French accord, and late discord, the SEPECAT Jaguar became one of the most iconic and capable fast jets of the 20th century. The Jaguar had served in the Close Air Support and Reconnaissance roles in the Royal Air Force and Armée de L’Air, and enjoyed some export success with their air forces Oman, Ecuador, Nigeria and India. Slated for retirement from RAF service in the early 1990’s the Jaguar was suddenly thrust back into the spotlight with the Gulf War, and proved to the decision makers just what a capable and versatile aircraft they had, and one worth future investment rather than the scrapman's torch. With expansive text, colour and mono images, colour profiles, technical diagrams, understanding the subject details, scale plans and how to model the Jaguar in popular scales, this new book from SAM Publications is not only an account of the Jaguar's airframe, operators, roles and systems, but also a celebration of a much-loved aircraft and one sadly missed in our skies, and a must have edition for the aviation enthusiast and modeller alike..
