Jaguar 17sq XZ371 BP 1979
17+32 – marked for a squadron exchange with JaboG 32
info from http://www.i-f-s.nl/squadron-exchanges-1979/ – August 1979
“This month there was a squadron exchange between the German Air Force JBG32 based at Lechfeld, flying the F-104G and the Royal Air Force 17 Squadron flying the Sepecat Jaguar GR.1 aircraft from Bruggen, Germany. It is unknown if it was a 1 or a 2 way exchange but most probably one-way, only Jaguar aircraft to Lechfeld.”
Hans-Juergen Breuer: I can confirm the Exchange with No 17 and JBG-32 Lechfeld. It was a one Way Exchange! The Exchange took place 30.07-08.08.1979. Bruggen sent the following Jaguars to Lechfeld. XX768/BA,821/BF,840/BZ,823/BG with XZ376/BE,371/BP. The Jaguar with the special Scheme 17+32 was real and returned to Bruggen on 6.08 – Saw it land only that Day.What a Scheme….but it only lasted for that Flight.Next Time I saw it – was back in normal Paint.!

India has agreed to pay £250 million to arm its Jaguar fleet with MBDA’s Advanced Short-Range Air-to-Air Missile (ASRAAM).
The ASRAAM, which beat the Rafael Python-5 to the contract, will be mounted on the Jaguar Overwing Missile Launcher pylon.
Only Jaguars upgraded to the DARIN II level will get the new weapon.

Test firings took place with the UK Royal Air Force in 2011 and the Indian Ministry of Defence chose ASRAAM as the L1, or preferred, option in late 2012.
Fit checks for ASRAAM were carried out on a UK RAF Jaguar at Boscombe Down in 2012.
