Jaguar from EC.1/11 Roussillon, as deployed (from Senegal) to Chad with EC.3/11 Corse during Operation Tacaud, in 1983. The aircraft were usully armed with SAMP bombs calibre 125kg or LAU-3 rocket pods for unguided rockets calibre 68mm, and DEFA cannons calibre 30mm installed internally. During the fighting for Ati, in north-eastern Chad, they were primarily limited to making strafing runs in order to avoid causing damage to own troops.
