Sepecat

SEPECAT (Société Européenne de Production de l'Avion d'École de Combat et d'Appui Tactique – the "European company for the production of a combat trainer and tactical support aircraft") was formed in 1966 as a joint venture between Breguet and the British Aircraft Corporation, one of the first major joint-Anglo-French military aircraft programs. Production of Jaguar aircraft components would be split between Breguet and BAC and these would be assembled on two production lines; one in the UK and one in France, however there would be no duplication of work, each component for the aircraft had only one source. The first of 8 prototype Jaguars flew in 1968, a two-seat design fitted with the first production model Adour engine. The Armée de l'Air took delivery of the first production Jaguar in 1973, one of an eventual 160 single-seat Jaguar As. For type conversion training, France also took 40 of the two-seat Jaguar E. The RAF accepted delivery of the first of 165 single-seat Jaguar GR1s (the service designation of the Jaguar S) in 1974. These were supplemented by 35 two-seat trainers, the Jaguar T2 (previously Jaguar B). India became the largest single export customer, with a $1 billion order for the aircraft in 1978, the Jaguar being chosen ahead of the Dassault Mirage F1 and the Saab Viggen after a long and difficult evaluation process. The order involved 40 Jaguars built in Europe at Warton, and 120 licence-built aircraft from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) under the local name Shamsher ("Sword of Justice"). The Jaguar International was an export version which was sold to Ecuador, Nigeria and Oman.
