Other issues besides are Japans ban/reluctance to export military equipment and the fact that at the time this project would have existed the exchange rate of the Aussie dollar to the Yen alone would have killed it.

From which aircraft did get the canopy from?

It looks great BTW.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

OK I have a question - In the late '60s Iraq assessed both the Mirage 5 and the Jaguar A, but finally got the Mirage F1.
If the opted for the Jag would it have been the simpler French A, or the Jag International. I am aware the French pushed the Mirage family rather than the Jaguar.

Any opinions please??

Just a guess but I'd say Jaguar International rather than Jaguar A. I doubt that SEPECAT had enough political sway in France to deter officialdom from backing the Dassault bid.

If I remember correctly, all export Jaguar were Jaguar International because Dassault has no interested in this aircraft (heritage from Breguet Aviation absorption, they prefer to sell the Mirage F-1) so they let the exclusive license to BAe to export aircraft.

I agree that they would have been derived from the Jaguar International.  It would be interesting to see if they might have been similar to the Indian Air Force Jaguar IMs with Agave radar (see below):




Of course, this then leads to a further whiff of an Iranian Jaguar in this sort of scheme:

Thanks for the input. I had not realised the Jag Inter was for all the exports, although I knew the French had no interest in exporting it in competition with the Mirages. I have a Sue fuselage stashed for donation of the radar nose for a Jag so I suspect it will be an anti-ship plane like the IAF's planes. Thanks again.

This is very interesting. I have a Jaguar in need of a rebuild and a Mitsubishi F-1 unfinished that needs inspiration.
