    In both tenders, Rafale won on technical points but lost due to technicalities.

    The Koreans chose the US, not the F-15.

    Singapore chose the F-15 because it was about 30% cheaper due to the exchange rate.

    France delivered two Rafale multirole fighter jets to Egypt; the fourth batch of a deal signed in 2015. Eleven Rafale jet have been delivered to date, and the Egyptian Air Force expects three more by the end of the year.

    The deal signed between Egypt and France in mid-February 2015 worth $5.6 billion included 24 Rafale jets, a FREMM frigate and MBDA missiles.

    The Dassault Rafale is a French-made twin-engine delta-wing multi-role jet fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation. Introduced in 2000, the Rafale is being produced both for land-based use with the French Air Force and for carrier-based operations with the French Navy.


    Very efficient by Dassault. Although I'm sure some of these orders were originally for the FAF.

    We will never have the answer : Gripen will not be ordered by India, because Tejas is on the way to become fully effective, and with a safranized Kaveri, it's indian future will be bright.
    Maybe Govt can install a 2nd plant for assembling Tejas in a private company, so as to shake HAL, to make a bench mark with HAL, and increase the delivery rate of this light plane.

    The main BS came from your side, nearly one year ago, when you claimed everywhere that never India will ordered Rafale....

    If reality is so painfull for you, please quit this forum. You will not miss us.

    Firmed by a french Rafale fan boy.

    No one of us can prove or not that.
    Reality was that Rafale was developped, so too few dev. work to share with Embraer. Gripen E was again on the drawing borad : iut was more interesting for Embraer.

    But we are speaking of a plane not operationnal. Just wait to see the real perf (I hope for Brazil that the promises will be better honored than F35 ones !).

    Another thing : Brazil, like Switzerland are in peace with all their neighbors. It's not the Indian case. So you can be more careful and choose a second league fighter in the first case than when you are facing China and Pak.

    You forget to mention that Korea first ranked Rafale N°1 (and without AESA radar at those time). USA made a high level pressure, using the thousand soldiers on the Korean soil to change the tender. After using a "special relationship clause", suddenly F15 became first...
