India set to revive '101 squadron’ at Hashimara base with 4 more Rafale jets


With another clump of four Rafale warriors arriving at Ambala from Merignac-Bordeaux airbase
in France on May 19-20, the Indian Air Force (IAF) is good to go to restore the 101 "Falcons of
Chamb" group at Hashimara in West Bengal even as advance units have effectively moved into
the new base.
While the specific date of Rafale arriving in India will be controlled by accessibility of mid-air
refuellers of the UAE Air Force and climate conditions, it is very apparent that the full
conveyances of 36 airplanes will be finished well before April 2022 as reported by Union
protection minister Rajnath Singh in Parliament. Toward the finish of May, the IAF will have 24
Rafale contender jets in India, with another seven saved for preparing purposes in France and
simply five more to be given over before the two units are finished.
The last five airplanes might be conveyed in the second-50% of 2021 as Egypt has put in a
request of 30 Rafale warriors.
