The Jaguar was an iconic aircraft to come from Anglo-French collaboration and one of the first to be conceived with a predatory attack and low-level strike capability. First planned as a trainer, it emerged as a fighter bomber taking much from the TSR2 concept when a string of cancelled projects identified a gap in strike/attack capability; it soon evolved into a supersonic aircraft ready for reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike roles. Retired before its time, for France in 2005 and for the RAF in 2007, it is still revered both by those that operated it and those that stared in wonder. The end for the Jaguar in the United Kingdom was sudden and rushed with the big cat going out with a meow rather than a roar. However, it survived on other continents providing a growl and bite in maintaining sovereignty for several decades on. This book is a stunning pictorial tribute to those final days.
