HISTORY OF THE JAGUAR GR3

The Jaguar GR3 XX748 was an Anglo-French jet attack aircraft designed to assist both French and British air force efforts in close air support and nuclear strikes. Although originally conceived in the 1960s as a jet trainer with a light ground attack capability, the Jaguar GR3’s immense capability soon transpired into a supersonic performance, reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike aircraft which played host to many battles.

The jaguar has been exported to India, Oman, Ecuador and Nigeria integrated within various air forces and utilised in extensive conflicts and military operations on a grand scale. Most notably, the Jaguar GR3 provided a ready nuclear delivery platform to the United Kingdom, France and India during the tense 1950s and 1960s, with the Cold War creating a suspense and tense atmosphere post-war, with nations crafting aviation models that would embody their dominance and power on a global scale. The Jaguar was also incorporated within the Gulf War, playing a pivotal role as a valuable coalition resource and heavily praised for its reliability during this era.

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.
