Rafale already has US Paveway LGBs, the point is that they won't integrate other US weapons like Amraam, or JSOW unless we would fund it alone of course.
More interesting would be integrating Indian weapons like Sudarshan LGBs or HELINA missiles, but they have to be fully developed first.

Hello - some incredible shots of the Rafale.

I am working on a 1/7 scale turbine model of a B and are looking for a subject and a pile of reference. Do you happen to have more? Thanks

I am preety sure that IAF will love to have EF-2000 and Rafael in 200++ numbers... also if LCA and MCA in combine fails than it will open up doors for F-35A,B&C.....

RAF LEUCHARS TYPHOONS PARTICIPATE IN WORLD’S MOST COMPLEX AIR COMBAT EXERCISE

Typhoon aircraft and personnel from 1(Fighter) and 6 Squadrons, normally based at RAF Leuchars, have participated in the largest and most complex air combat exercise in the world. Held at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, Exercise Red Flag 14-1 attracted over 160 military aircraft from the US, the UK and Australia.

The Royal Air Force is no stranger to Red Flag, having been a regular participant since the exercise was established in 1975 to improve the survival chances for military aircrew by replicating real combat as closely as possible.

The commander of the RAF Detachment, Group Captain Mark Jeffery, said:

"Red Flag is the pinnacle; it's the exercise you need to do to make sure your forces are ready. Hopefully they'll never have to do this for real, but clearly we need to be ready to do this anywhere in the world."

The Issues




further progress in determining the final cost of the mammoth procurement programme hinges on France accepting the defence ministry's condition that Dassault should take the responsibility for all the aircraft and not just the first lot of 18 that will be flown in from France
.

The French aircraft maker is willing to give training and documents for building the aircraft but it has so far refrained from giving an assurance on the final product as it cannot supervise the work done in an Indian company. There are several intricate issues linked to the condition. Even HAL will not accept supervision by a foreign vendor.

The delay in finalising the contract and a change of government in New Delhi has provided an opportunity to those who lost out to try to remain in contention. A whole new debate has been ignited by raising questions about the big ticket purchase on the grounds that cheaper options are available.

The government has not given any indication of a re-think as negotiations have continued with Dassault. Adding to the meddle is Brazil's decision to buy Grippen instead of Rafale. Apart from IAF, all eyes were on Brazil's decision. After much flip-flop, Brazil chose to buy 36 Gripen NG fighters for $5.475 billion
