In the past, no one wanted it. Now many countries are rushing to get it. The total number of orders has exceeded 100 Rafale fighters. They have proven their capabilities in many actual battles.
According to a report published on September 12 by Agence France-Presse titled “The Rafale Fighter That Couldn’t Be Sold Is Now Commercial Success”, Greece has just announced plans to purchase 6 more advanced Rafale fighters, with a total order of 24.
Earlier, Egypt announced that it would order another 30 Rafale, India ordered 36, and Qatar ordered 36. However, for this fighter that was put into service about 20 years ago, the success came too late. Egypt was the first country to purchase Rafale fighters.
