    That is a stock picture, not from Swiss arrival. Look back on Qatar Targo II news. Same picture.

    They are. Nt more PESA radars were produced since signature. They are basically F3R standard.

    Are the Egyptian Rafales equipped with AESA, do we think? Or do we (should we) know the answer?

    if that was an answer to the short line I made about idealism, I was not qualifying someone nominally but about the someone that took defense matter on the public stage. Whoever he is doesn't matter much here.

    or simply passionate for power?

    Indian perspective: what do do of Pakistani's Rafale pilots?

    It is quite obvious that Pakistani pilots will fly all these aircraft being procured by Qatar. It is irrelevant whether they have been trained in France on the Rafale. In all likelihood, they would have. We must factor this in our calculations.

    NEw (M30)ones yes. Anyway, the antenna can perfectly be retrofitted within 2 hours. Exchange of antennas certainly happened.

I understand that current numbers for RAFALE in French service are 143 operational/delivered + 28 scheduled for delivery of which the last 60 were to be delivered with AESA, so that as of today France has 23 to 32 equipped with AESA with 28 coming until 2023 already signed and 30 more expected to come by 2030.
    Is that correct? As I say I couldn't find links on broader upgrades. Thnks in advance.
    AFAIK, at least 32 Rafale have got an AESA so far
    Also possibly the Rafale M30 which is the first that was retrofited to the F3R standard last December.

    Also, all 147 Rafale currently in service in French forces have been retrofited to the F3-4+ standard meaning that they are all AESA compatible.

    As far as 60 AESA were ordered, you must be close to the truth.
