It has been over two and half months of the deadly Pulwama attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed which martyred our 40 CRPF jawans and over two months of India's revenge by conducting Air Strikes in POK.

During those days the Indians were in deep grief for their jawans but more than that whole nation was showering their anger on pakistan in various ways. During those days the patriotism if Indians was on the 7th sky.

And the response of our airforce was also of a magnitude which reflected the anger of Indians.

In fact after the air-strike, we came to know about the potential of the Indian Air Force.

But recently in a gathering, Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanona addressed a seminar and said that "The results would have been further skewed in our favour if, we inducted the Rafale aircraft in time".

And that's absolutely true!!!

The response would have been of more bigger magnitude and would have caused more damage if our Air Force had Rafale that time.

So what's "Rafel Jet"?

It's a French twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole warplane designed and made by Dassault Aviation. 

Its equipped with a variety of weapons and can perform air domination, interdiction, aerial intelligence operation, ground support, in-depth strike, anti-ship strike and nuclear missions.

Although India had hit it hard with upgraded MiG-21s, Bistons & Mirage-2000 aircrafts. In fact, our MiG-21 was able to hit & destroy Pakistan's advance F-16 which it got from USA.

Although the Government of India led by Narendra Modi has signed an inter-governmental agreement with France in 2018 regarding the acquisition of 36 new Rafale Jets worthing around Rs 58,000 crore.

And the great thing is that the first delivery of Rafales will begin from this September!!!
