A doubt...
Will the latest CoronaVirus pandemic that took over Europe, including France, effect the delivery schedule of the Rafale...?

And there was a very interesting article, posted in these forums, about how his dad didn't allow the coalition government of the day to scuttle the deal (and get it renegotiated) of the Su 30 MKIs by trying to bring in the bogey of corruption. And how ABV, George Fernandes etc were instrumental in back channel talks with him during that time.

His dad is saner , went to APJ during newclear deal for advice and supported MMS

The French have gone to extraordinary lengths for standardization, thats why the canopy for single seaters is similar to twin seaters

Beauty. These and the upgraded Mirage 2000s will be highly interoperable. A fleet of 86 aircraft with heavily integrated ECM and multi-role capabilities.

How? There's no ODL or datalink to connect them in the IAF.

Rafale production halts in France due to COVID-19, jets’ delivery to India could be delayed

If the production facility in France remains shut beyond 31 March, the delivery schedule of Rafale fighter jets to India could get impacted.

Meant this. ODL will come too. Till then voice should do.

While the Ambala and Hasimara bases will be the IAF’s principal Rafale centres (17 Squadron ‘Golden Arrows’ is slated to be the inaugural Rafale unit), the Gwalior Mirage 2000 station will be fully integrated right from the start for operations and cooperative training. The collective training and synthetic learning architecture being installed at Ambala and Hasimara will be linked directly to a similar module in Gwalior, being set up for the IAF’s upgraded Mirage 2000-5 fleet (eight have been upgraded so far out of 51). This will allow pilots at the three bases to fly cooperative simulated missions using both aircraft types on a long list of existing and fresh combat scenarios. These will, of course, include area denial combat air patrol operations on the Chinese front and northern sectors, close air support and interdiction missions in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, precision strike missions along the Line of Control and cooperative reconnaissance missions/anti-surface missions on both of India’s seaboards. The experience of the Gwalior squadrons, coupled with the new tools coming with the Rafale will be a huge mutual boost to both bases, types and fleets.

oh ok. So a lot of cooperative training for the Mirage-2000I and Rafale together. Most likely in simulators where simulated missions can be conducted simultaneously from Gwalior and Ambala?

My humble plea to GoI is get 36 more of these Rafales and meanwhile please effing sign the contract with HAL for MK1As and MK2s. Just like our forces subject indigenous equipment to multiple summer/winter trials our contracts also need to go through DAC, CCS. MoF multiple times :(

Cooperative training will lead to cooperative missions too. Both have similar weapons fits as well, likely weapons employments techniques, ECM etc. The Rafale builds upon Mirage 2000 after all. I won't be surprised if the two fleets are operated tightly integrated.

Right now, we can forget about it. Budget will be very tightly squeezed by China's contribution to the world. :x :roll:

The MMRCA is the eternal carrot that just keeps on giving.
You can sleep without worrying... more Tejas are coming in the form of FOC, Mk1A, Mk2 aka MWF
