Boost for IAF: 3 more Rafale jets with India-specific enhancements coming from France next month
The stage is set for Indian Air Force (IAF) to receive last four Rafale fighters from France from February with all of them fully equipped with India specific enhancements, which will give extra teeth to fight any regional adversary. It is understood that three Rafale fighters are expected to leave Istres-Le Tube air base, north-west of Marseille in south France, around February 1-2 depending on the weather conditions and arrive in India after due mid-air refueling by close ally, the United Arab Emirates Air Force, using Airbus multi-role transport tankers.
Rafael is a great machine that ever built battle proven
Deploying them at Ambala and hashimara is a strategically important
The French naval rafale is also doing its tests in INS Hansa in Goa, for our 2nd aircraft carrier.
Rafale Marine will make Indian navy deadlier. Wish to see photos of it operating from INS Vikramaditya & INS Vikrant.
For knowledge i want to tell you rafale is advance in technology same as f35 both jets are same in technology and armament but thats for standard rafale ,indian rafale is more advance only thing that lack is that f35 has lesser rcs ,but rafale is fit of iaf as they are good in french jets
do not pretend, haha you know nothing, Rafale has no internal weapon bay, so RCS is 10 with 6 missiles, compare to F35 with RCS only 0.05, do not pretend you know something but show you know nothing!
HAL yet AGAIN delayed Tejas Mk-2 by blaming covid while dassault is delivering Rafael consistently.. it's about time govt seriously considers allowing private players in India to develop seriously viable options rather than depend on HAL. Hindustan Always Late company.
GOV. SHOULD SELL THIS ROUGE COMPANY'S.. LOST OF TAXPAYERS MONEY
Made in France rocks
So far, France has not provided Meteor capability (no Storm Shadow cruise missile) to IAF
Had the Congress government have finalized this deal between 2004-14 these would have come long ago in sufficient numbers with IAF at present, they took 10 years to decide for nothing...they were not getting required commission
Meghalaya Competition Success
India should build its own fleet.

place order for another 80 +Rafales .... are we planning fly Migs till 2035 ???
Rafale should be the only fighter jet in armed forces be it Navy or Air Force along with some Tejas and that too Tejas Mark 2 . No need of Fifth Gen Aircraft Pak will never be able to get one and Rafale is enough for Chinese.
France is very beautiful country
Need more 36 Rafal###
Take more 18 Rafael by made in India
Only 36 is not enough we need another 36 rafale to counter pak china airforce
One problem with France they not manufactures powerful engines

India bought 36 rafales for 8.8 billion
Egypt bought 30 rafales for 4.5 billion.
UAE orders 80 rafales and 8 helicopters for 19 billion.
Why indian rafale is so costly. Even with India specific enhancements 8.8 billion is too much.
Even 36 F35 will cost less than 8.8 billion.
Jf17 is more powered than this one
