India will receive the first 18 Rafale jets by February 2021. By April-May 2022 we will receive all 36 jets.
“The Rafale will enhance the strike capabilities of the Indian Air Force. India has never eyed any country and these potent aircraft will never be used to attack any country but will be used as a deterrent, the defence minister Sri Rajnath Singh told.
India will soon have a combat aircraft rivalling Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II of the United States of America, China’s Chengdu J-20 and Russian Sukhoi Su-57. Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria on Tuesday announced that the development of 5th Generation advanced multi-role combat aircraft has been launched in a massive boost to the Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) programme.
