    Reminds me of a movie I watched part of that many refer to as “the French Top Gun.” Gorgeous aerial sequences but I never could find a copy with subtitles. I forget the real name of it, maybe one of our French members knows what I’m talking about.

    Curious as to language being spoken?

    Great video and I really like the Rafale. Glad to see some foreign buyers for it...

    Best,

    They would have sold far more Rafales if they hadnt been so rigid on the price. A Rafale is about $60 million a pop,(more than a Typhoon or a Grifen by a long shot) before you buy the bangy stuff that hangs from it, and, rumour has it, they were not prepared to drop the price by a whole lot even if the customer bought a sizeable amount, entered a service contract (as is the norm with military sales) nor were they prepared to allow third-party sub assembly in the buyer's country (allegedly, India wanted to build it's own Rafales under license, yet wanted the right to blame Dassault if anything went wrong afterwards!! Needless to say, Dassault declined).
