Actually, Rafael had come to India only in July this year but it has been formally inducted into the Air Force today. Let us tell you that on July 29, five Rafale fighter aircraft from France arrived in India, but officially they have joined the Air Force today. During this, Chief of Defense Staff Bipin Rawat, Air Force Chief RKS Bhadauria were also present at Ambala’s airbase. The Air Force has a total of 36 fighter jets from France, with five aircraft in the first installment.

Rafale fighter aircraft will be included in the Golden Arrow 17 Squadron in the Air Force, the same squadron rescued Pakistan’s sixes in the Kargil war. In such a situation, once again their presence at Ambala airbase can surprise the enemy. It is worth mentioning about the time of Rafale’s entry into the Air Force, that the threat of Rafael could be a problem for the neighboring countries amid the ongoing tension between China and Pakistan.

One feature of Rafale fighter aircraft is that it is far ahead of other aircraft in reaching altitude as soon as it starts. Rafale’s rate of climb is 300 meters per second, which also outperforms China-Pakistan aircraft. That is, Rafael can go up to a height of 18 thousand meters in a minute.

On the other hand, if we look at the perspective of Ladakh, then this fighter aircraft fits. Rafale is an omni-roll fighter aircraft. It has great agility in mountainous places. If there is less space on the mountains and it has to come down, then this plane is unmatched. It can be landed on a warship while walking at sea. Three types of missiles can be placed in this aircraft. Air-to-air meteor missiles, air-to-ground scalp missiles and hammer missiles.
