    I'll go with the (1) Jaguar over the (2) Mirage and (3) MiG-27
    it's got the other two on:-

    range:

    (1) 528 miles (2) 404 miles (3) 336 miles

    payload:

    (1) 10,000lbs (2) 8,818lbs (3) 8,800lbs

    though is the slower of the three:

    (1) 1,056mph (2) 1,188mph (3) 1,171mph

    Survivability enhanced by a two-engine arrangement, over the single-engined arrangement of the other two.
    Rate of climb and service ceiling isn't much of an issue here.
    Also has the best undercarriage by far, can land just about anywhere.

    Its worth remembering that the French preferred the Jaguar over the Mirage V
    They had both but the Mirage were only taken over from a IAF order cancelled on political grounds.

    And the Indian Air Force preferred the Jaguar over the Mig 27 keeping the Jaguar in low level production until I think 2005 for attrition replacement.

    Why Israeli pilots I would think other pilots would be far more flexible. They fly in a area where the weather is almost a non factor in airspace the size of my backyard with every tool that money can buy against lower skilled opposition

    Jaguar. Just a good looking airplane. Kinda funny looking on the ground. Looked knockneed. One of those birds I would like to fly that nobody else seems to think was a great one. Well, on this side of the pond anyway.

    Some exported models did have radars; the Indian anti-ship version had it, since it enabled them to use Sea Eagle AShM beyond visual range.

    As for Indian Jaguar vs. MiG-27, the later received a substantial upgrade with Israeli electronics couple of years ago. So I guess they liked both of them.

    Jaguar was almost copied in Japan and ex-Yugoslavia - and only the best get copied.
