Rafale, S-400 deals are booster dose for IAF: BS Dhanoa

New Delhi, Oct 03 (ANI): Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa on Wednesday praised the Rafale deal and said that both the Rafale deal and S-400 are like a booster doze to Indian Air Force (IAF) whose numbers are coming down. He added that the squadron number of the Indian Air Force was coming down and therefore the Rafale deal was an emergency purchase.

He said, "We had reached an impasse. We had 3 options, first was either to wait for something to happen, withdraw RFP or do an emergency purchase.

We did an emergency purchase as our squadron number was coming down so it was like a booster doze. Both Rafale deal and S-400 are like a booster doze to IAF whose numbers are coming down.

The government took a bold step and bought 36 Rafale deal as the negotiations had reached to a level that if the government would have said yes to other aircraft we would have gone six years back."
