When and if the deal is finally signed, it will be Dassault’s first export contract for the Rafale and the single largest it has ever participated in. I only say “if” because there is still work left before contract signature. But this is, by far, the closest Dassault has gone to clinching an order for the Rafale. The Rafale pips the Eurofighter Typhoon for what is by far India’s largest aerospace contract and one of the most keenly tracked in recent aerospace contracting.
Not to crow or anything, but I happen to be the only Indian journalist who has flown in the Rafale. Here’s my account of that amazing ride. Only if you must though 🙂
