Survivability and armour

The Jaguar GR.1 has no armour plating or armoured glass. The entire wings of the Jaguar GR.1 are made up of fuel tanks, along with most of the upper fuselage, with flight controls being exposed in the "spine" of the aircraft. The two engines take up a small amount of room in the very rear of the fuselage.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: ADEN Mk.4 (30 mm)

The Jaguar GR.1 is armed with:

  • 2 x 30 mm ADEN Mk.4 cannons, belly-mounted (150 rpg = 300 total)

Suspended armament

The Jaguar GR.1 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 2 x AIM-9G Sidewinder missiles
  • 76 x CRV7 M247 rockets
  • 8 x 540 lb Mk.M1 bombs (4,320 lb total)
  • 8 x 1,000 lb G.P. Mk.I bombs (8,000 lb total)
  • 2 x AIM-9G Sidewinder missiles + 38 x CRV7 M247 rockets

  • 6 x 1,000 lb G.P. Mk.I bombs + 2 x AIM-9G Sidewinder missiles (6,000 lb total)

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:

  • Capable of using AIM-9G Sidewinder missiles that have decent range and turn performance
  • Manoeuvrable, especially compared to the T-2 and F-4
  • Decent roll rate
  • Decent CAS loadouts
  • Armed with the powerful ADEN cannons
  • Equipped with RWR to warn about incoming radar-guided missiles
  • Has a Girthy Gear

Cons:

  • Mediocre speed performance for its BR
  • Mediocre climb rate and energy retention
  • Can only load two missiles
  • Can't utilize SARH and/or BVR
  • Not equipped with radar

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
