Qatar is acting crazy.

Rafeal+EU Typhoon+F-15+Apache+ s400, Turkish made UAVs and corvettes?

This is clearly political. How on earth is Qatar going to operate all those systems? It needs at least 10 years to do the trainings let alone maintenance, logistic supports......etc.

Very valid question! Buying a platform, is one thing, learning how to use it, is another. To exploit it's full potential does take years, no doubt.

As you rightly siad, this is poltical, nothing more. Btw, The Rafales are reportedly flown by ex-PAF pilots.

At the moment there is no information about the training aircraft that collided, however, according to Doha, the pilots managed to survive the accident. It is also unclear what exactly caused the collision.

"During a training flight a collision occurred between two training planes and the pilots were able to safely get out by using the ejection seat", a statement on the Qatari Defence Ministry's Twitter account said.
