The SEPECAT Jaguar is an Anglo-French supersonic multi-role combat aircraft originally used by the British Royal Air Force and the French Armée de l'Air and is still in service with several other countries. Conceived in the 1960s as jet trainer with a light ground attack capability, the requirement for the aircraft soon changed to include reconnaissance and tactical nuclear strike roles. First flown on September 8, 1968, the Jaguar served with the Armée de l'Air as the main strike and attack aircraft until July 1, 2005 and with the Royal Air Force until April 2007. It was replaced with the Panavia Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon in the RAF, and with the Dassault Rafale in the Armée de l'Air. The Jaguar was exported to India, Oman, Ecuador and Nigeria.
