India’s two neighbors are Pakistan and China. The enmity of these two enemy countries towards India is long-standing. However, India has come to educate these two countries alone. France has always been on India’s side in dealing with the enmity of these two enemy countries. That friendship was further strengthened through the Rafale Agreement. India has already signed a deal with Dassault Aviation to buy a total of 36 Rafale fighter jets. So far, India has received 11 out of 36 Rafale fighter jets. Dassault Aviation will deliver the rest of the raffle this year. In a few days, the French President’s diplomatic expert Emanuel Ban is likely to visit India. According to sources, France is interested in making raffle in India and during his visit to India in Emanuel Forest, Modi government is likely to propose to make raffle in India.
An Indian company in Nagpur has already won a contract to manufacture various parts for the Rafale fighter jet. A total of 114 warplanes are required by the Indian Air Force. According to Dassault Aviation, if India orders 100 Rafale aircraft, they are interested in building them on Indian soil. Tenders have been called for the 114 fighter jets required by the Indian Air Force and the world’s fastest fighter jets, including US, Russian and Swedish fighter jets, are present with their state-of-the-art and best fighter jets. And that is why the Indian government will take a decision on this issue after the 36 raffle arrives in India.
According to Dassault Aviation, a new chapter in Indo-French military history will begin once the process of making raffle on Indian soil begins. In that case, India does not have to think about the supply of raffle. On the other hand, the possibility of creating new employment on Indian soil will be unveiled. This will open new doors for India in the military industry. Earlier, Chief of Air Staff RKS Vadoria had hinted that the IAF was likely to buy two squadrons of 36 raffles.
