Jaguar IS — an event vehicle Strike Aircraft for Great Britain at Rank VII

Meet the Indian variant of the British Jaguar, also known as the Sword of Justice. It features just one cannon instead of two, plus a targeting pod with a thermal imager allowing it to drop guided bombs. In addition to this, it can carry a pair of Magic 2 air-to-air missiles on overwing pylons, and also features an RWR and countermeasures against missile threats. Overall, a great all-round aircraft!

Among the rewards in the event is also this chest, where, when opened, brings the chance to receive one of the following items:

  • 50,000 - 100,000 Silver Lions
  • Silver Lion and Research Point boosters
  • Random Wagers and Orders
  • Universal Backups (1 - 3)
  • A random camouflage for a vehicle you own
  • 1 day of Premium Account

How to get all rewards

Each stage can be obtained for 45,000 mission points, where every new stage obtained will give you a new reward.

Please note: After finishing a stage, you need to collect the reward manually (except the random trophy reward and profile icon). To do this, click on your name in-game, go to “Sword of Justice” and click the “Get Reward” button.


You’re able to earn mission points in Air Battles at Rank III or above in Arcade, Realistic and Simulator Battles. The number of mission points to complete a stage depends on the game mode and the maximum Rank of the vehicle that you use in battle. There’s a multiplier for earning mission points, which is shown in the task description in-game.

You can also earn mission points by using event vehicles that are Rank I and II. Event vehicles that can be used have the name of the event that they were obtainable in on their stat card.

Stages change every two days at 11:00 GMT on February 24th, 26th and 28th; March 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th.

Rewards are given when you complete a specific number of stages

  • For 1 Stage: trophy with a random reward
  • For 2 Stages: one of the decal rewards
  • For 3 Stages: trophy with a random reward
  • For 4 Stages: one of the decal rewards
  • For 5 Stages: trophy with a random reward
  • For 6 Stages: “Dogfighting Pilot” profile icon
  • For 7 Stages: trophy with a random reward
  • For 8 Stages: non-tradable coupon for the Jaguar IS
  • For 9 Stages: unique camouflage and 4 random modifications for the Jaguar IS

Discounts on purchasing stages using Golden Eagles

Unfinished stages can be purchased for Golden Eagles, but If you’re significantly close to completing a stage, its price will now be significantly reduced.

Let’s say you have earned 85% of the required mission points to complete a stage, then the price of purchasing this stage will be halved. If you’re near the finish line for a stage and are at 95% progress, then the price will be reduced by five times. For example, if you’ve scored 39,000 mission points, then the price for unlocking this stage will be 499 Golden Eagles. If you’ve scored 43,000 mission points, then you’ll only need to pay 199 Golden Eagles. Remember to keep this in mind if you cannot complete a stage on time!

The Upgrade for coupon

When you complete 8 stages, you’ll receive a non-tradable coupon for the Jaguar IS, where using it will immediately activate the vehicle onto your account. If you don’t want the vehicle and would like to sell the coupon on the Market, you’ll need the “Upgrade for coupon” item.

The “Upgrade for coupon” item can be earned in parallel with the stages throughout the event from February 22nd (11:00 GMT) until March 11th (11:00 GMT) for 750,000 mission points.

After receiving the “Upgrade for coupon” item, you can convert a non-tradable coupon for the vehicle into a tradable one and sell it on the Market. The tradable coupon can be sold after 6 days from the moment it’s created.

To make a tradable coupon, select the “Coupon Jaguar IS (Great Britain)” in your inventory and click the “Modify” button.


The “Upgrade for coupon” item is valid until 11:00 GMT on March 14th. Until this time, you can use it or exchange it for 1600 War Bonds. Afterwards, it’ll disappear from your inventory. Console players can only exchange this item for War Bonds.

You can track the progress of completing stages and receiving the “Upgrade for coupon” by clicking on your Nickname > Achievements > Sword of Justice. If you don’t manage to complete a stage on time or would like to purchase a stage, until March 14th from the Achievements window, you can purchase each stage with Golden Eagles which will give you the corresponding rewards.
