True news this time

Iraqi Defense Minister Jumaa Adnan has revealed that his country is planning to purchase Dassault Rafale fighter jets from France.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Adnan said he had discussed the issue with his French counterpart during his visit to Paris last week.

“There is a plan to buy the fourth generation of French-made Dassault Rafale aircrafts,” the minister said, revealing that the plan is in its initial phase, and that the ministry will put the proposal forward to receive council of minister’s approval.

Iraqi F-16 operational readiness must've been hit severely after the latest political spat between Washington, Tehran and Baghdad.

I don't think so.

Anyway for a country like Iraq , don't you think Rafale is an overkill for your needs?
How are you going to pay for it?
I don't know.

Iraq should be like it was in 80s and 1990, invade our inferior neighbors.

Don't like this friendly neutral government of ours. Iran needs to be banned from Iraq and Turkey is an enemy. Arabization is the only path that exists.

Considering how much corruption has surrounded French equipment acquisition is this is an indicator deep corruption at high government levels?
Mr. 10%, and given India’s own Rafael experience

French equipment hasn't performed well in Iraq's various wars. J-10 or JF-17 are better options.

Mirage F1 was Iraq's backbone aircraft in the past, had 110 of them or something
What was the success of the Iraqi Air Force with those? If you can sell hate for Turkey to the French they'll be more than happy to subsidize the Rafales like they did for Greeks. But then again Europoors help Europoors more than they would ever help Iraqis.
