Narrative:
As part of "Operation Daguet", the L'Armee De L'Air deployed 35 Jaguar A aircraft, mostly drawn from EC. 11, in support of Allied operations against the Iraqi occupation of kuwait

The first French mission took place on 17th January 1991, when 12 aircraft launched for a daylight attack on the "Scud" missile facility at the Ahmed Al Jaber airbase in Kuwait. The Jaguars laid down a number of Belouga grenade canisters from a height of only 100ft, and also launched some AS.30L missiles.

Four aircraft took AAA damage, including one (A91) that was hit by an SA.7 missile. The pilot managed to put it down at the US base at Jubail, with the rear of the aircraft badly damaged. The damaged Jaguar was later crated up and returned to France.
