The Vautour was a French twin engined multi-role fighter bomber, entering service in 1958. It was designed to be an interceptor, bomber and ground attack aircraft. In French service, it was a disappointment, being underpowered and the bomber versions lacked any kind of advanced targeting or navigational equipment. The IIN was a two seat all-weather fighter and faired a bit better but the French preferred the Mirage III in the fighter role. 

The Israeli Air Force bought all versions of the plane. In Israeli service the Vautour did have some success, particularly in the ground attack role, where due to generally good weather, it was far easier picking out targets and navigating. The Vautour was withdrawn from Israeli service in 1971 and replaced with the A-4 Skyhawk and the last examples with withdrawn from French service in 1979.

The kit consisits of four styrene runners accompanied by a clear one plus a set of resin parts and a sheet of photo etch metal parts.
