3 more Rafale Jets Landed in India

Three Rafale fighter jets landed at the Ambala airbase on Thursday, taking the total number of Rafales in the Indian Air Force (IAF) inventory to 23. Three aircraft were to take off from Merignac-Bordeaux airbase in France on May 20.

The IAF is all set to resurrect the 101 “Falcons of Chamb” squadron at Hashimara in West Bengal. It is expected that the full deliveries of 36 Rafale aircraft will be completed before April 2022 as announced by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in Parliament.

India ordered 36 warplanes from France in 2016 for ₹59,000 crores under a government-to-government deal.
