The sorties distribution is the following (Rafale participation in the mission in bold) :
- CAS and interdiction : 50%
- Reconnaissance : 21%
- Air Defense : 9%
- AWACS : 5%
- Air Refueling : 11%
- GAM (Helicopter force) : 4% (the low figure is due to the fact that helicopters have only been deployed for one month)
The sortie rate has been very stable with an average of 220 sorties each week increasing to more than 230 since the Gazelle and Tigers are involved.
The CAS mission is also increasing for the last 3 weeks.
