The Dassault Rafale is a French twin-engine, canard delta wing, multirole fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation.

Equipped with a wide range of weapons, the Rafale is intended to perform air supremacy, interdiction, aerial reconnaissance, ground support, in-depth strike, anti-ship strike and nuclear deterrence missions.

The Rafale is referred to as an “omnirole” aircraft by Dassault.

Introduced in 2001, the Rafale is being produced for both the French Air Force and for carrier-based operations in the French Navy.
The Rafale has been marketed for export to several countries, and was selected for purchase by the Indian Air Force, the Egyptian Air Force, and the Qatar Air Force.

The Rafale has been used in combat over Afghanistan, Libya, Mali, Iraq and Syria.
Several upgrades to the weapons and avionics of the Rafale are planned to be introduced by 2018.
