India negotiating additionally 50 more Rafales under second contract. During 1990 India negotiated SU 30 MKI under similarly contract later order huge number of SU 30 MKI and assemble SU 30 MKI in India. In coming years India will order large number of Rafales under Make in India. If Indian Navy order Rafale M it will save money and logistics. I personally think India should order 200 Rafales for air force and 57 Rafales for navy. Rafale very capable fighter and best in class. In Indian Navy fighter jet contest only disadvantage for Rafales is cost and additional cost like folded wings etc. Rafale is an Omni role fighter and has a wide range of weapons and Meteor missile. Rafale will be deployed Pakistan and China border. Reliance already building factory for manufacturing Rafales in India. Indian version Rafale is more capable than French Air Force Version. Scalp cruise missile is very capable and it will be useful in destroying enemy fortified target. Rafale is currently best fourth generation fighter in the world. There is fifth generation version of Rafale called F 4. Rafale has advanced radar and engines. There is rumor going on that Rafale will be fitted with Kaveri engine in future. Rafale M can fly both INS Vikramditya and INS Vikrant after slight modifications. Rafale is the best bet that India has. France most trusted Indian partner. So finally Rafale is the best for India.
