Very interesting ,it's confirmed.∫øø§

Congrats to the both sides, Qatar will win the Rafale and France will win the $$$$ .
I always knew that if a first deal is signed,others will come,congratz to Dassault and particularly the French defence minister JYLD (Jean-Yves le Drian),who "fought" like a lion to sell this fighter. (This man is with no doubt the best minister of this govt) 2 Rafale deals in 4 months,is really a great achievement. (We still wait deals from India and UAE).
And..
Congratz to the Qatari air force. <!?!> ¶•¶

Its not always about money. It has some other dimensions. Trust, quality and reliability. France is the only true ally of GCC states. It has never failed us.

The Rafale C is the single seat version,and the Rafale B is the two seat version.
It seems that these Rafale will be at the F3R standard. (The new F3R standard Rafale will include a new-generation laser targeting pod and major software changes. The upgrades will complement the enhanced Thales RBE2 active electronically-scanned array (AESA) radar which will allow the aircraft to deploy the MBDA Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile , along with improvements to the aircraft’s Thales SPECTRA self-defence system and Mode-5/Mode-S-compatible Identification Friend or Foe interrogator/transponder.)
I hope. !-!

holande will be the first foreign leader in history to attend GCC leaders meeting tomorrow.
and this meeting before the GCC leaders go to US to meet obama in camp david. which is also a first.
so i think the message is clear. gulf countries trust france much more than US
