We're sending more than the article is quoting but I believe how many, where the jets are coming from, and where they'll be stationed is classified to some degree. But I'm sure Belka's been busy the last couple days

I've also had my file sorted out as the military has officially said they mishandled it. Should be getting my interview next month, finally.

Yes its been very busy during the last few days, and will be for the foreseeable future. As already said they will be stationed in Trapani, Italy. It is about time the fighter community in Canada saw some real action.

Hey Belka, think you could stuff another external tank on there? How many air-to-air refuels did it take to get to their first stop in.... Iceland? I'm assuming 2-3 for the guys out of Quebec. Hooray for poop-suits!

Got called to book my interview today, WOOHOO. I'll be fist-pumping at work for the rest of the day.

Their first stop was in Prestwick, UK and they'd only need one refuel.

We frequently exchange aircraft between squadrons due to operation requirements. Last month we borrowed a 410sqn dual for an exercise in Salina, KS. Long story short, that jet was a POS and was always down for maintenance which on a deployment = $$ wasted and a useless asset. To thank 410 for the aircraft, we left them a parting gift:

below r comments on a article http://indrus.in/articles/2011/04/04...ose_12357.html


Quote:
As a American Officer just my 2 cents, but it is widely accepted by the US Navy and Air Force that the Rafale is not welcome at US exercises, because it dominates F-18, F-16 and F-15. It actually holds it own against the F-22.The F-22 super stealth fighter was not able to ID the much smaller Gripen until the it was close enough to negate any advantage the Raptor had in stealth and BVR weapons. With the F-35 still a fragile pipedream, there are many good choices that can be made. Since the Indian MOD left the F-16, Mig-35 and Gripen off its short list for this competition, last year, this appears to be a poorly researched and lazily written article.
