Rafale Aircraft

After the induction of five supersonic Rafale fighter jets into the Indian Air Force, the number has increased to six. As their numbers are increasing, so too the strength of the Indian Air Force is constantly increasing. Rafael aircraft were escorted to two Sukhoi MKI aircraft at Ambala airbase. This moment was very special for everyone present here. These aircraft were given a water salute in the presence of Air Chief, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria.

Let us tell you that the first French-made Rafale aircraft RB 001 was received by India in October last year. At that time, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh himself went to France to take delivery of it and he worshiped it by flying high on this plane. There was also a hue and cry from the opposition. Significantly, India has to get 36 Rafale aircraft from France. Half of these aircraft are to be placed at Ambala airbase and half at Hashimara airbase in West Bengal. These Rafale will be flown by the pilots of 11 Goldl Aer squadrons, whose training has been completed in France.

  • The Rafale aircraft is equipped with not one but many features. This is the reason why it is included in some of the world’s strongest fighter jets. Let’s know its merits.
  • The aircraft is capable of reaching speeds of 1800 kmph.
  • The enemy cannot escape from Rafael’s surefire target. Rafael weighs 10 tonnes without pay load. At the same time, if it flies with the missile, it can weigh up to 25 tons.
  • The Rafale aircraft can take multiple missiles with them.
  • Rafale aircraft are equipped with stealth technology. This means that it has the power to dodge enemy radars.
  • The Rafale aircraft is capable of flying over the Himalayas even in extremely cold weather. This type of capability is not present in every fighter aircraft.
  • The most dangerous missile in the Rafale aircraft is the Meteo beyond Visual Range AIR to Air Missile, which can carry out air-to-air fire.
  • These aircraft will now also be equipped with Hammer missiles. The specialty of these missiles is that if any fighter aircraft appears in the No Scape Zone, then this aircraft will be able to kill it too.
  • India has deployed Hammer missile according to its requirement. This means Highly Agile Modular Munition Extended Range Missile. They are used for short distances. These missiles can prove to be effective from the sky to the ground.
  • HAMMER is mainly used to destroy bunkers or some hidden places.
  • Rafael can go up to a height of 18 thousand meters in a minute. In this sense, it is better than Pakistan’s F-16 or China’s J-20.
  • Combat radius of this aircraft is 3700 km. is. This means that it can return from its flying place by attacking so far.
  • This aircraft has the ability to refuel in the air itself. So it can cover more distance at the same time.
