(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) In Depth: India received first Rafale Fighter Aircraft from France

Topic: India received first Rafale Fighter Aircraft from France

Topic Description:

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh ceremonially received the first Rafale fighter aircraft in France on Tuesday - three years after India signed an agreement with France to procure 36 such fighter jets.

The Rafale twin-jet fighter aircraft, that entered service with the French Navy in 2004, will come to India with certain modifications for the Indian Air Force.

Categorised as a 4.5 generation aircraft for its radar-evading stealth profile, the Rafale aircraft is expected to be a game changer for the Indian Air Force, as most of its aircraft are either third- or fourth-generation fighters.

Also, India will only be the fourth country after France, Egypt and Qatar to fly the Rafale.
