Dassault Chose Offset Partner For Rafale: IAF Chief

Indian Air Force chief B S Dhanoa said on Wednesday the Rafale aircraft, once brought to India will be a game-changer in the subcontinent.

“It’s a very good aircraft. We have got a good package and we have a lot of advantages in the Rafale deal,” he said. The Air chief added that the purchases will enhance the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) capability.

In response to a question on Rafale maker Dassault Aviation choosing Reliance Defence over state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Dhanoa said it was the prerogative of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to choose the offset partner and neither the government nor the Air Force had any role in it. Read more
