Amid China-India standoff, India may receive Rafale jets by end of July


India will receive six Rafales loaded with Meteor BVR missiles. These will enable the Indian Air Force to target aircraft from a distance of 150 km. Giving the Indian Air Force a much-needed boost against the Chinese Air Force. While the Rafales are very capable it remains to be seen how they would fare against China's stealth J-20s. In addition to the Meteors, SCALP EG cruise missiles will be carried by the Rafales, allowing for long-range air-to-ground attack capabilities
