UAE Air Force to help 3 Rafale fighters reach India, 7 more in April

The UAE air force’s Airbus multi-role transport tanker will twice refuel the three Indian fighter jets on their non-stop eight-hour flight from Bordeaux-Merignac base in France to join the Golden Arrows Squadron in Ambala.

When five Rafale fighters flew non-stop to India from France on July 29, 2020, the aircraft was refuelled four times by a French MRTT.

The UAE air force’s gesture is the first-of-its-kind and reflects how the two countries are rapidly cementing their security ties, a person familiar with the matter said. The next level would be trilateral military exercises involving France, UAE and India.


Wonderful Military gesture from UAE.. Thats really putting out the combined stance very very clear to those countries in the region that really wants to stop India from having Rafale...

counter it with facts one by one, start with the serial no. of missile and intact fuel tanks so what is your response how can PAF produce both r73 in unfired state with exact iaf serial number? his second point is alsoa genuine why fuel tanks were with jet if it took the first step in engagement.

Dassault just inked today a deal with french government to replace by brand new F4 models the 12 second hand Rafale selled to Greece.

So :
Export orders : Qatar 36, India 36, Egypt 24, Greece 18. Total = 114.
French orders : 180 + 30 to follow in 2022/2023
