"New Rafale will help against China": Indian Air Force intends to deploy fighters in the conflict zone

The Indian Air Force does not exclude the deployment of the latest Rafale fighters received from France on the Indo-Chinese border in East Ladakh. This was reported by the Hindustan Times newspaper with reference to military sources.


According to the publication, the Indian Air Force command will consider the option of deploying French fighters on the border with China at a meeting of the Air Force command in New Delhi July 22-24, the intention to deploy fighter aircraft in the region was previously reported.

Rafale fighters can be deployed along the line of actual control with China to strengthen the operational capabilities of the Indian armed forces, despite the withdrawal of Indian and Chinese forces in East Ladakh. This is a complex and lengthy process, which was imprinted by the lack of mutual trust of the parties.

- the newspaper writes.

It is emphasized that France went to meet India, which asked to speed up the delivery of French fighters. According to the publication, the next batch of Rafale fighters will arrive in India on July 27. At the same time, it is specified that there will be six aircraft instead of four. Thus, counting the previously received four aircraft, after the arrival of a new batch, the Indian Air Force will already have 10 Rafale fighters.

Recall that India purchased 2016 French Rafale fighters in 36, spending $ 6,5 billion on them. The first 18 fighters were supposed to be delivered by February 2021, but due to the border conflict with China, it was decided to speed up the delivery.

Note that at present, India in the east of Ladakh has deployed MiG-29, Su-30MKI fighters, Apache attack helicopters and CH-47F Chinook multipurpose helicopters.

      I am so amused by this news ... I imagine if similar technologies would have been 80 years ago. Hitler wrote on the eve of June 22 in Vkontakte - "Tomorrow I will attack Russia! It is decided - either we will drown everything, or we will all emerge! (Smiley)" laughing Zhukov draws inspiration from reading articles on VO - "We are not fighting correctly!" (Author - R. Skomorokhov) ... laughing

      What is the reason for hysteria? You would look at the characteristics of the French radar.

              It's funny. The Chinese Air Force has no stocks of stocks (So the Indians have no less of them, they forgot that the last time an Indian was cut down by a Pakistani fighter of Chinese origin on a Russian engine). However, the Chinese have RVV SD with ARGSN. Of course there is also RVV with TGSN. And there is also a radar board on their airplanes. And the performance characteristics of Thunder's flimsy radars do not look much worse than Rafalevskaya. And about their radar, the Chinese are silent. In extreme cases, they can transfer the Su-35, where the radar board has a greater detection and tracking range than the Tales product.

            Laughter is laughter, but the Chinese panic over Rafal says something.

    Talking about India, it is necessary to have brains with a peculiar twist.
    In general, their affairs, their decisions. Strange, but they probably know better.

    New Rafale will help against China

    They can help and will help, but they are unlikely to last for a long time against several hundred of the same J-10.

    Rafale is seriously at risk in the conflict between India and China. Any unforeseen loss of an airplane or an accident can lead to reputational problems.

    It's just interesting how the Indians will cope with servicing such an extensive range of equipment in the event of a large-scale escalation of the conflict. Well, what kind of support services do you need to have for weapons and maintenance personnel?
