    According to the French bulletin "TTU", the French company Dassault Aviation began negotiations c Russian company "Tactical Missiles Corporation" on the possibility of the integration of Russian missiles in the arms of a fighter Dassault Rafale. This variant may play a role in the context of the sale of Rafale fighter jets to India.


    Indian Air Force are armed with a large number of Russian-made missiles, rockets are particularly numerous air-to-air R-73 and RVV-AE missiles and air-to-surface a series of X-31.

    Previously, the company Dassault stated that Rafale has not been selected number of potential customers because of too high cost "rocket pack" made in France, who was also a component of the "big" contract for the purchase of fighter aircraft.

    May be its a good Thing and Good thinking by france. They must understand Meteor - Beyond Visual Range Air to Air Missile (BVRAAM) is not the Alien weapon system as the west advert. Russians missiles with Far greater Range,Fire power etc will make rafale a real A2A ACE fighter jet.Great
