Description

The Jaguar programme began in the early 1960s, in response to a British requirement (Air Staff Target 362) and a French requirement (ECAT or École de Combat et d'Appui Tactique, "Tactical Combat Support Trainer") for a cheap, dual role trainer and light attack aircraft to replace various obsolete subsonic aircraft filling that role. Cross-channel negotiations led Britain and France to form SEPECAT: Société Européenne de Production de l'Avion d'École de Combat et d'Appui Tactique – the "European company for the production of a combat trainer and tactical support aircraft". Almost all parts of the aircraft were jointly built by the two countries. For example, the powerplant was a partnership between Rolls-Royce and Turbomeca to develop the Adour afterburning turbofan engine, while the fuselage and wings were a partnership between Breguet and BAC, using the same basic configuration and an innovative French-designed landing gear and fuselage design, the Jaguar was built incorporating major elements of design from BAC, notably the wings and various control systems. In the end, the Jaguar program grew into more than just a trainer aircraft, and saw great export sales to foreign countries as a trainer, bomber, strike aircraft, and anti-shipping attacker. The French, however, were not satisfied with the performance of the Jaguar B, T2, and T4 trainers, and later set out to create their own special trainer variant. The Jaguar E variant was the two-seat training version for the French Air Force, with two prototypes and 40 production aircraft built in total.

The Jaguar E, introduced during Update "Drone Age" as a reward for the 2022 Project "Overpowered" event, is a twin-seater trainer variant of the tech tree Jaguar A. The Jaguar has high wing loading and suffers from greatly decreased manoeuvrability and speed when fully loaded with ordnance, however, it will often not be used in such a case in-game, instead being utilized as a support fighter in dedicated air battles to to its abundant countermeasures and R.550 Magic 1 missiles combined with its nimble handling when unburdened. However, combined battles is where the Jaguar A really shines, being able to use a wide array of guided and unguided ordnance, chief of which are the powerful BGL-400/1000 series laser-guided bombs and AS-30L Nord laser-guided missiles. One should be wary of the Jaguar E's heavier airframe and RTOW compared to the Jaguar A, which results in further decreased handling and performance especially when equipped with ordnance.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good manoeuvrability once suspended armament is disposed of
  • Has two pilots, which decreases the risk of losing the aircraft if a pilot is knocked out
  • Healthy amount of countermeasures
  • Wide variety of air-to-ground loadout options, including laser-guided bombs
  • Access to very effective Matra R550 Magic 1 air-to-air missiles

Cons:

  • Top speed and acceleration are mediocre
  • Poor energy retention, bleeds quite a lot of speed in turns
  • Performance is significantly crippled while carrying big bombload
  • Has neither radar nor radar warning receiver

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
