According to The Aviationist, with the possession of the Rafale fighter, the Greek Air Force is a nasty force for the Turkish Air Force with the F-16 in the Eastern Mediterranean.
The Greek Air Force and the Dassault Group of France have officially signed the deal for the 18th Rafale 4 ++ generation fighter. This was seen as the latest Greek move for Turkey in Eastern Mediterranean airspace.
Under the newly signed agreement worth about 2.3 billion euros, France will provide Greece with 18 Rafales, including 6 new aircraft and 12 used aircraft. Handover commences from July 2021 and will last for two years.
Historically, France has often sided with Greece in the border disputes between this country and Turkey in the Aegean Sea. Tensions between Greece and Turkey were heightened after Ankara dispatched a probe to be escorted by military ships to the Eastern Mediterranean.
Aviationist experts said that, if there was a confrontation between the Greek Rafale and the Turkish main fighter F-16, the chance of victory for US-made aircraft was almost no.
