In Photos: Rafale Jets, The New "Golden Arrows" Of Air Force

 The Rafale jets, built by French aerospace major Dassault Aviation, are known for air-superiority and precision strikes on ground targets, making them truly multirole jets.

New Delhi: The first batch of five Rafale multirole fighter jets were formally inducted into the Indian Air Force in Ambala air base in Haryana today. The first batch of five Rafale jets arrived in India on July 29, nearly four years after India signed an inter-governmental agreement with France to buy 36 jets for ₹ 59,000 crore. A traditional water cannon salute was given to the Rafale fleet before its ceremonial induction into the 17 Squadron, IAF spokesperson Wing Commander Indranil Nandi said.

Here are some photos of the Rafale induction ceremony place at Ambala Air Base:
