The first flight of a superprototype in 2023
Let's see where Qatari Mirages end up first. India has been buying attrition replacements from France as well airframes for spare parts. They have also slowed down the upgrade program for now but these UAE ones could very likely end up there too or in Egypt.
what for, their last wars always been with their Arab neighbor .
and to fight Iran means missile falling on their financial center and these rafale won't provide any protection against those missiles
I yet to see those weapons. uae is a financial hub and tourist destination , one missile is the end of those . till they manage neutralize Iranian missile and drones then there is no chance of fighting with IranSands do shift. Arabs fought against Israel, invading it multiple times and now they fighting against the Persians. And from what I'm seeing UAE is developing new weapons that could give Iran problems.

Emirati seem to have a roadmap.The Emirates contracted for the best available aircraft, which is the F-35, but relying on it alone is impractical, so it is really better to acquire the Rafale.
The UAE has great experience with French planes and has a huge stockpile of ammunition, and the Rafale F4 offers a remarkable improvement and a very satisfactory performance that allows it to work alongside the F-35 with all the comfort and strength. In addition to the Emirati masterpiece Global Eye (the Emirates contracted two additional planes, bringing the total to 5 in the future), we are talking about the most technologically advanced Arab air force.
India received F3R standard with Indian requirements in the mix.I wonder if there will be any customization of Rafales for UAE as previously they wanted uprated M-88 engines & conformal fuel tanks for extended range?
Any special electronics like Indian modifications or just standard F4??
The Qatari Mirage 2000’s have been sold to a French company, they will use them as aggressor training enemy for a French Air Force contract (sort of Red-Air, so to say).Good point - The Qatari and UAE Mirages could end up in India if there is any airframe life left when they are retired - or as a source of spare parts. Egypt is in the Rafale bandwagon - so starting to take use Mirage 2k's will be an interesting decision for them.
