As part of the Jaguar project, the SEPECAT consortium of the British BAC and the French Breguet company also developed a two-seater Jaguar E for training flights, as well as fire missions. The main difference from the single-seat version was the bigger canopy with additional cockpit position for a co-pilot. The first operating model of the Jaguar E was ready in April 1968, even before the single-seat version. A total of 40 Jaguar E aircraft were ordered, with the first production aircraft taking to the skies in September of 1968. These machines were used as advanced training aircraft in the French Air Force.


The two-seater Jaguar E is coming to the game as one of the main prizes in the autumn crafting event that starts in War Thunder soon. This is an event rank VI strike aircraft and one of the best French aircraft in its class. Good flight capabilities for an attack aircraft, compact size, huge payload and excellent weapons - this is what the Jaguar E will become in the game. Let's see this beauty in detail.

The Jaguar E is a cousin of the Jaguar A jet attack aircraft, already known and loved by War Thunder pilots. This might not be the easiest aircraft to play, but in the hands of a skilled pilot it is a real death scythe against ground targets, which is also capable of engaging short air duels even with top-tier fighters. The new Jaguar E attack aircraft differs from the researchable version in an enlarged canopy with a second cockpit, as well as the absence of a radar warning system. In addition, the aircraft can carry flares in the standard Jaguar Corail launcher.

General flight performance remained the same. At high altitudes, the attack aircraft is capable of accelerating to speeds over 1400 km/h, but its usual operating mode is subsonic speeds at low and medium heights. The aircraft maneuvers surprisingly well, especially at high speeds, and thanks to its small wings area it has excellent roll rate. However, the small wings significantly complicates its controllability with a large payload on board.

The Jaguar E's main armament is a pair of DEFA 553 rapid-fire cannons, with 150 rounds per barrel. The aircraft can take both unguided and guided weapons of different kinds. In the ‘bomb truck’ setup the Jaguar E can carry up to 11x250 kg or as many as 8x400 kg bombs. Ballistic calculator helps to put every bomb directly on target. In addition to the familiar SNEB rockets, the Jaguar E is the second aircraft in the game that is armed with ECC rockets with a shape-charged warhead, and exotic TBA Multi-Dart, containing 6 armor-piercing kinetic darts capable of effectively hitting any armored vehicle from above. After researching the ATLIS II targeting pod, pilots will have access to modifications to unlock the 400 and 1,000 kg guided bombs, as well as AS-30L Nord guided missiles. For aerial duels, the Jaguar E can take a pair of slick Matra R550 Magic 1 air-to-air missiles.
