Rafale AESA to be delivered in September

A&C, on the 28th of June, announced that the Rafale C137 will be delivered in September.

Initially expected during the summer, DGA will receive the aircraft first so as to conduct some trials at Istres.

Only then, this Rafale will fly toward Mont-de-Marsan where it will start a 18 month period of experimentation before operational service.

The C137 is still a F3-O, but with some F3-O4T equipments, like the new AESA, of course, but also DDM-NG and the brand new OSF-IT.

    1. I'd rather wait for it to be relayed by a well known western media. No offense intended. ;-)
