Heller Sepecat Jaguar 1/72 Scale

Developed jointly by Britain and France from an initial concept of light trainer and close-support aircraft. Has sold overseas, to Ecuador, India and Oman. The RAF version has more avionics than the French, with integrated nav/attack and laser ranger. The GR.1 saw a lot of action in the Gulf War, painted desert pink and carrying overwing Sidewinder missiles.

The Jaguar lacks one vital component, radar. It does however possess a computer system which allows waypoint co-ordinates to be entered before the start of the mission. Thereafter, a moving map display presents the aircraft's projected position to the pilot, and this can be manually corrected as the mission proceeds. The Jaguar has been sold to Nigeria, Ecuador, Oman and India.
