Of course, as discussed on a European forum, this would not
include ASMP-A nuclear missiles for example. But if the weapon
itself is not included in the deal, all Rafales can be equiped with
the proper electronic casings ( a one and a half hour job ).
Since there is no major reason to deny our Indian friends the
Vesta and ANL tehnologies that render such a use possible, it
would only remain for India to develop a nuclear missile of the
proper size to enable this capacity which the upcoming nuclear
version of the Brahmos shows to be feasible.
Care to elaborate? What proper electronic casings are needed for the aircraft to be capable of nuclear strike?
Also I've never heard of the propulsion technology (?) developed under the VESTA program ever being available for export.
