The French Crouze
HyperScale is proudly supported by
Here is my artwork of the French Crusader, from delivery to the early
all grey period. These Crusaders were able to carry Sidewinders, Matra
530, and Magic 550.
The illustration started as a drawing of the Crouze, scanned,
then colored with Adobe Photoshop.
The best documentation book on the subject, is Les Crusader francais
en action, 2 edition, by Jean-Marie Gall. You got everything on the
French Crouze in that book!
Crusader no: 3 lasted until 1999, while Crusader no. 16 served as
airframe undergoing fatigue testing from 1986. Crusader no: 19 was
preserved after it period of active service finished in 1997.
