    Media talked about 90% availability. I had that time also stated that no airforce works with such unrealistic figures. Even for war, we assume best availability of 75% only.

    Initial maintenance is for 7 years and a option to sign a contract at same terms for another 5 years thereafter. The idea is clear that by 7th year the MII line and Indian ecosystem will be ready to take on this role of supporting our fleet

    and availability is played down at 75% + a sperate logistics support package for high performance availability and spares in order to touch 90% under definite conditions

    May I say, I always believed you and said 200+. Now let me tell you how, I knew. Of all the places a train journey. The person traveling with me was senior person from teh IAF maintenance command/wing. He explained a bit about the modularity during maintenance and that the IAF was completely behind it. 200+ is a given. With IN numbers it will be closer to 250-270.

    Though ya, not as strong as from both you and vstol. When both of you started talking the same language have been trying to see which pvt company it will be.

    Today is going to be Ricard Pastis day!

    It appears that the price of Rafale-M has been pegged at 10% higher than the Rafale-C.

    Some more good news

    Dassault: the sale of 36 Rafale to India paves the way for further success

    The CEO of Dassault, Eric Trappier, estimates that the sale of 36 Rafale fighter jets to India will open the way to other successes in this country and that Malaysia may be the next market winner in Asia.

    Question: The sale of 36 aircraft to India she is not half a success compared to the original tender (126 Rafale, 108 manufactured in India)? Is this a first step for other contracts in India?

    Answer: "I believe in a primer The 36 will be a primer We will continue efforts to get maybe renewal (wider) of the army of the Indian Air It will work the day after the... signing the contract on 36. Regarding the case of the 126, it took so much time that the Indians have said 'we will buy 36 aircraft directly +. Better than 36 126 virtual real. "

    Q: The contract provides for compensation (offset). What are the guidelines and what Dassault benefits can he draw?

    A:
    "The + offset + is: buy Indian products, produce and help produce parts that we buy in India, helping develop new products We will initiate an industrial plant, probably through a partnership with. local player. It will be aerospace and defense mainly. India is a major emerging country. It's easier to be here than in China. There will be no license problem of 'export...

    It was an obligation of 50% offset. If the contract is EUR 8 billion was a theoretical obligation to 4 billion. After there are coefficients (an investment account over a gross purchase, note). We negotiated the principle, it has obligations, deadlines, chapter headings (...) Now we must do. "

    Q: Does the contract he opens new perspectives in the region or elsewhere to Dassault?

    A: "It is moving towards the East: Egypt, Qatar and India ... I would like to continue with Malaysia This is a little more again The first three countries were long users.. date of Mirage 2000, Mirage F1 ... We never sold a plane to Malaysia. It is a new challenge. I believe more in Malaysia than in Canada. the west side + + seems to me more complicated because of US close. Want or they may not buy American?

    The snowball effect continues. There is a good momentum. French politics may appeal to some who want to stay more independent of the United States. We can not sell that kind of material if there is no trust (strategic) between two countries. "
