In a huge boost to the Indian Air Force amidst the tensions with China, five Rafale jets will soon join the Indian Air Force fleet in Ambala in Haryana on July 29th.

The aircraft will be refuelled by a French Air Force tanker aircraft on their way to an airbase in the UAE before leaving for India.

The arrivals in India will mark nearly four years after the two countries inked an inter-governmental agreement to supply 36 of the multi-role jets to the Indian Air Force under a Rs 59,000-crore deal.

Commenting on the jets, These 5 Rafale jets are extremely swift, versatile & very deadly aircraft, they’re both beauty & beast. I would like to thank Dassault for delivering aircraft on time and French Government & French Air Force for all the support,  said, Jawed Ashraf, Indian Ambassador to France.
