  The Rafale

When France left the EFA (European Fighter Aircraft) / Eurofighter project in 1985, Dassault was nearing completion of its own advanced combat aircraft program.  The aircraft's first flight was on July 4, 1986.  Since then 212 Rafale aircraft have been ordered by the Armée de l'Air (40% being two-seaters for training and nuclear strike mission) and 60 have been ordered by the Aéronavale Francaise.  The Rafale is slated to become the sole type of combat aircraft operated by the Armée de l'Air and Aéronavale and to be the French armed forces' combat aircraft until 2040, at least.  India has selected the Rafale (originally 126 on paper but reduced to a firm 36), Egypt will purchase 24 aircraft, and Qatar will purchase 36.
