    Egyptian Rafale deal could be financed by as much as 50 percent through a credit facility arranged by French credit insurer Coface according to some reports.

    It means that other NATO member countries will take financial burden for its influence and security. United states have done the most for the NATO alliance.

    Republic of India is always having options but the policy adopted by Indian military planners is always open.

    In Sep 2014 , quarter of India’s Mirage 2000 fleet were grounded because a contract for spares for years stuck because of the bureaucracy and Indian military planners doesnt want the same things to be repeated with 126 Rafale fighters.

    BRICS is an economic block which some countries says its a counter to EU block because of thier issues.

    Republic of India has faced similar problems of spare parts with the Russian fighter planes and this is the main reason that India is working to not go through the same.

    President Obama visit was infact important for India and United States relations.

    Egypt is not considered as adversary by the IDF + Israel already ordered 33 F-35s.

    I think the prime role of 26 Egyptian Rafales will be a deep strike capability, similar to 25 Israeli F-15I.

    Israel going for 5th generation F-35 (and maybe F-22 in future) and Egypt got stuck with Rafael. Would it not be better for them to invest in Chinese/Russian 5th generation fighter program? But hey, their money (Saudi donation), there decision. I only wish if it was possible to buy someone some common sense too.

    Egypt is Israel's toe licker, a mere satellite; why she nees to buy Rafaels in the first place? Wont it be better to use this money for the betterment of her royally screwed up public and wait until the time was right to go for 5th generation fighters?

    And Pakistan went for something that could stand against MiG-21 and Su-7. Point is not whether you got financial assistance, but judicial use of it.

    No one is ungrateful dear, its just a discussion. Dont get worked up. People in Pakistan are upset because money from Middle East influential is being used to fund sectarian conflicts. This is a fact which you sitting in Saudi Arabia dont understand. Anyway I dont want to derail the thread.

    Yeah its way to open so much so there is no end to Rafale deal in sight. I mean Indians have become a joke really. They couldnt close the deal after 3 years of negotiations or whatever you call it.

    1) Egypt's concern is Ethiopia, not Israel.
    2) Chinese/Russian wont be ready before 2020 conflict with Ethiopia can happen much sooner and they hardly match to US 5th gen.
    3) SCALP stand off missiles allow u destroy targets from safe range. No need in stealth.
    4) During long range strikes with drop tanks stealth will be destroyed anyway.
    5) Low RCS, super agility, AESA radars, Meteor missiles - that's huge multiplier for EAF.
    6) Its Rafale for god's sake, not Rafael.

    This is Rafael:

    This is Rafale:

    I did not know Egypt needs Rafale for Ethiopian conflict. If true, they proved dumber than I thought.

    Thanks for correcting the spelling.
