Advantage Rafale F4 in MRFA : The Parliamentary SCoD has asked IAF to maintain commonality by reducing fighter jet types in the fleet

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence (SCoD) has advised the Indian Air Force to reduce the number of aircraft types in its fleet in order to have fewer operational as well as maintenance issues and to enhance combat efficiency.

The Indian Air Forces fighter fleet consists of seven different fighter types procured from different countries and the Indian Air Force has told the committee that it procures a mix of low, mid, and high-tier fighter jets for different operational roles but in future, it plans to achieve high commonality with Made in India fighter jets like Tejas Mark 1A, Tejas Mark 2 and AMCA that will share certain levels of commonality either because of engine or avionics.

The Indian Air Force operates 36 Rafale fighter jets and in case the Rafael F4 standard is selected under the MRFA (Multi-Role Fighter Aircraft) tender, it will also boost the commonality of the IAF fleet.
