Описание: This, the second AEROGUIDE, is devoted to an aircraft that is very much at the 'sharp end' of NATO's combat forces: the aggressive-looking Jaguar. Compared with types such as the Harrier and Vulcan, which were brought to the forefront of public attention in the spring and summer of 1982 during the Falklands campaign, the Jaguar is a relatively unsung working aircraft but it is a vitally important ingredient of the UK defence strategy. It serves with L'Armee de I'Air (French Air Force) as well as with the RAF, and during September 1983 made the front pages of the national newspapers when a number of French machines were deployed to Chad to provide support for ground troops stationed in that country and threatened by 'rebel' forces advancing from the north.
British Jaguars, however, form the main theme of the present booklet. The photographs concentrate on the single-seat GR Mk 1, but the type conversion trainer, T Mk 2, is also depicted; it may be borne in mind that, apart from the forward fuselage and tailfin, the two variants are essentially identical. Additional photographs depict French machines (which differ in detail from RAF-operated aircraft) and the export Jaguar International (which, broadly, does not).
