Just a day ago, the Chief of the Indian Air Force had expressed concern about the fighter jet used in the Indian Air Force, in which he had stated that most of the aircraft used in the Air Force are very old.
The Indian Air Force upgrades and uses these aircraft. Air Marshal had told about the use of MiG-21 that India has been using these aircraft for the last 40 years.
It is clear that this statement clearly shows how much India needs new generation aircraft.
But according to the news of ANI, India may get the first Rafale aircraft very soon, India’s current Air Force Chief Rajnath Singh and Air Marshal BS Dhanoa will go to France on 20 September to receive the first Rafale aircraft. It is worth noting that India had signed a 36 Rafale fighter plane deal with France under which the first aircraft was to be delivered to India from the month of September.
The remaining aircraft will also be delivered to India by May 2020.
The Rafale aircraft has been built by the French aircraft manufacturing company Dassault Aviation, this aircraft is a fifth generation state-of-the-art fighter aircraft that can shoot dangerous missiles at enemies with great speed.
Indian pilots will be trained with the initial fighter jets that India will receive, along with the Indian Air Force will deploy squadrons of these fighters at Ambala in Haryana and Hashimara in Bengal.
After India gets a fighter aircraft like Rafale, the strength of the Indian Air Force will definitely increase and this aircraft is also a necessity of India in view of the dangers of the border areas.
