    Personally, I read:

    S'appuyant sur un centre de commandement et de conduite permanent et interoprable avec nos allis, les forces ariennes comprendront notamment 225 avions de chasse (air et marine), ainsi qu'une cinquantaine d'avions de transport tactique,

    ------------

    "Based on a permanent and interoperable command and control center with our allies, the air force will include 225 fighter jets (air and navy) and about 50 tactical transport aircraft,

    But I will be happy to be proven wrong.

    Parc constitu de 185 avions air et 40 avions marine constitu de RAFALE, de MIRAGE 2000-5 et de MIRAGE 2000D. - see Parcs d'quipements et livraisons des principaux quipements LPM 14-19 (3)

                    Economical returns on Belgian Rafale offer could turn out to be "an empty box".

                    in its most recent offer, the DGA stated that if Belgium invests 4Bln in Rafale fighters, it would get 20Bln in return as part of economical compensations.
                    the Belgian MoD and government officials believe this to be an economical blackmail, as the country is already guaranteed to get those compensations through other commited aviation projects it is takeing part off (A400M, Airbus Airliners, Falcon...).

                    the MoD is stating that the offer is similar to getting an empty box.

                          Wow..that makes it 3 Yak-130s crashed out of the 16 delivered. They have 13 left now.

                            You would think the French would learn this kind of thing doesn't work! After trying to pull the same thing in Morocco a while back with the Rafale and more recently Canada with Fremm you would think France would get the message "Obey the countries procurement rules and don't put forward unsolicited Government to Government deals!"

                              you mean practices like announcing in front of the prime minister of the host country, that said host country would be buying new military equipment from guest speakers country? Yeah, obey the rules...

                                Brazil defense ministry opposes giving up Embraer control to Boeing

                                Defense Minister Raul Jungmann said on Thursday the ministry was concerned that the negotiations between the aerospace companies had advanced without its knowledge.

                                “No country in the world would release its grasp on control of a company like (Embraer). It has a nucleus of defense that is inalienable,” Jungmann told reporters in Brasilia.

                                He said the ministry viewed favorably any deal that maintained local control of the company and would direct its representative on the Embraer board to seek further information. The Brazilian government holds veto power over strategic moves at Embraer.
