NEW DELHI: Amid the ongoing Chinese border conflict, the offensive capabilities of the Indian Air Force (IAF) will be enhanced as 3-4 Rafale fighter jets will arrive at Ambala Air Base in Haryana from here the first week of November.
It would be the second batch of these French-origin fighter jets because the first batch of five Rafale arrived in India on July 28 and was officially inducted on September 10 by the Narendra Modi government.”The second batch of 3-4 Rafale fighter jets would arrive in India by the first week of November from France and preparations are underway for their arrival in the country,” government sources told ANI. .

“With the enthronement of these planes, the IAF would have 8 to 9 combat planes which will be operational within a few days in view of the current situation”, they declared.

The Rafale fighters have already been operationalized and were also deployed in the Ladakh conflict zone during their short time in the Air Force.

An IAF team led by Deputy Chief of the Air Staff (Projects) Vice Air Marshal N Tiwari in France to review the project as part of the routine annual meeting

Indian pilots are training there in France and by March 2021 the Indian side will probably complete the training phase there.
The IAF will deploy one squadron of each of the Rafale fighter jets to its air bases in Ambala in Haryana and Hasimara in West Bengal.

In September 2016, India signed an agreement with the French government and Dassault Aviation to acquire 36 Rafale fighter jets for more than 7.8 billion euros in order to stop the fall of the combat squadrons and meet urgent needs. on the eastern and western fronts.

The first five fighter jets were inducted in Ambala in the presence of French Defense Minister Florence Parry and Indian Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat, as well as IAF chief RKS Bhadauria .
