Before landing at an airbase in India, Rafale aircraft were accompanied by Su-30MKI fighters

32

In India, celebrations are being held to mark the meeting of the five Rafale fighters, which flew out of France the day before yesterday and proceeded through the Al-Dhafra military base in the United Arab Emirates. During their stay in the UAE, French-made fighters in India were closely watching the rocket fires of Iran, which it conducted in the Strait of Hormuz. The target of the Iranian missiles was a model of the American Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, created in Bandar Abbas.


Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh said that when Rafale entered Indian airspace, a pair of Indian Air Force Su-30MKI fighters took them to escort. The planes flew to the Ambala airbase in a general air formation.

The minister has tweeted the appearance of the Rafals in Indian airspace, as well as their landing at the above Indian air base.

Ambala is an Indian Air Force base located in the city of the same name in the state of Haryana in the north of the country.




A welcoming radiogram to the Rafale pilots was also transmitted from the Indian Navy INS Kolkata (destroyer Kolkata).

Earlier in the Indian press, statements appeared that by the end of the week the Rafal fighters could be redeployed to Ladakh, where tensions have recently risen against the backdrop of a clash between the military of India and China.

      Give the dunce a glass dick, he will either break it or cut it. We have already had a bunch of assorted aircraft, ours seems to have mastered at the very least, and even then they have constant flight accidents. Now they will fill the "Raphael" cones. Well, about the F-35 with its problems ...

    Congratulations to the Hindus on the miraculous rescue of the Raphales. The evil Iranians didn't hit them. A living shield from the Hindus was not required.

      It is necessary to make some noise so that the Chinese understand. Indeed, "ours" look more serious against the background of Rafals. How many types of fighters does India now have? Forgot: Jimi, Jimi. Acha, acha. Deserved, they can have fun. drinks

        TASS
        The Defense Procurement Council of the Government of India has approved a new arms procurement plan, which includes the purchase of 33 Russian fighters worth approximately Rs 18 (tens of millions of rupees), which is approximately $ 148 billion. Of these, the purchase of 2,4 MiG-21 fighters and the modernization of 29 fighters of this type in the Indian Air Force will cost 56 crores, or $ 7418 million, and the purchase of 966 Su-12MKI fighters assembled at the Indian enterprise Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will cost 30 crores, or $ 10 billion.

        $ 1,427 billion: 12 Su-30MKI fighters = $ 118 916 667 for ONE SU-30MKI, subject to assembly at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
