New Delhi: Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa said on Monday that the induction of the Rafale fighter jets will enhance the strike capability of our Air Force and act as a deterrent to Pakistan. Addressing the media, IAF Chief said that once the Rafale fighter jets are inducted into the IAF, Pakistan won’t have an answer to the Indian capabilities.

Speaking to the news agency ANI, “When the Rafale comes in, the deterrence of our air defence will increase manifold. They [Pak] will not come anywhere near the LoC or the border, with the kind of of capability that we will possess, for which presently they [Pak] don’t have an answer.”
The IAF Chief's comments come days after PM Narendra Modi claimed that during the recent escalation between India and Pakistan, ‘if we had Rafale Jets, no one on the other side would have survived’.


“If the Indian Air Force had the Rafale today, the situation would have been different, but some people do not have it in them to understand this,” Modi said, adding “When I say this, they question the Air Force strikes.”
