New Delhi, March 31: Amid tensions on the China border, three more Rafale fighter jets would reach India by Wednesday evening.
According to official reports, the fighter jets from France will reach Gujarat at 19:00 and will join the Golden Sparrows Squadron in Ambala at Western Air Command.
The three additional aircraft would be adding more strength to the Air Force arsenal. Sources said the IAF has already started deploying the Rafales in an operational role in the conflict areas.
The first batch of the Rafael Fighter Jets has been officially inducted by Indian PM Narendra Modi last year in the month of September.
In total, IAF would have eight fighter aircraft which will be operationalised within a few days.
The jets will be positioned at the strategic Western Command and Hashimara airbase under the Eastern Air Command.
