Dassault Rafale


The Dassault Rafale is a French twin-engine, canard delta wing, multi-role 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, anti-ship, and nuclear deterrence missions. The Rafale is referred to as an "omnirole" aircraft by Dassault.

 

The Rafale, with its “Omnirole” capabilities, is the correct answer to the capability approach selected by an increasing number of governments. It fully complies with the requirement to carry out the widest range of roles with the smallest number of aircraft. The Rafale participates in permanent “Quick Reaction Alert” (QRA) / air-defense / air sovereignty missions, power projection and deployments for external missions, deep strike missions, air support for ground forces, reconnaissance missions, pilot training sorties, and nuclear deterrence duties. The Air Force single-seat Rafale C, the Air Force two-seat Rafale B, and the Navy single-seat Rafale M feature maximum airframe and equipment commonality, and very similar mission capabilities.

 

Lessons learned from the latest conflicts where air power was used, can be summarized into four overarching expectations about weapon systems by political decision-makers:

 

  • Versatility, that is the capability, with the same system, to perform different missions,

 

  • Interoperability, or the ability to fight in coalition with the allies, using common procedures and standards agreements, and collaborating and communicating in real-time with other systems,

 

  • Flexibility can be illustrated by the ability to conduct several different missions in the course of the same sortie (“Omnirole capability). With this capability, it is possible to switch instantly on the demand of a political decision maker, from a coercion mission (“strike force”) to a preventive mission (a dissuasive low-altitude, high-speed “show of force”), or even to cancel a mission until the last second (reversibility),

 

  • Survivability is the capability to survive in a dense threat environment thanks to stealthiness and/or advanced electronic warfare systems.

 

The “Omnirole” Rafale combines all these advantages: it is relevant against both traditional and asymmetrical threats, it addresses the emerging needs of the armed forces in a changing geopolitical context, and it remains at the forefront of technical innovation. Thanks to its versatility, its adaptability, and its ability to meet all air mission requirements, the Rafale is the “poster child” transformational fighter which provides a way forward to air forces confronted with the requirement of doing “more” with “less”, in an ever-changing strategic and economic environment. Of moderate size, yet extremely powerful, superbly agile, and very discrete, the latest type of combat aircraft from Dassault Aviation does not only integrate the largest and most modern range of sensors, but it also multiplies their efficiency with a technological breakthrough, the “multi-sensor data fusion”.
