Continued sales of the Dassault Rafale

France has managed to reach successful purchase deals of the Dassault Rafale fighter plane with other countries too.

In December the United Arab Emirates signed a record deal for 80 of the warplanes. Qatar has purchased 36 and Egypt has ordered more than 50.

Dassault Aviation has also taken orders for planes from India, Greece, and Croatia.

A French parliamentary report shows that business totaled some 4.7 billion euros ($5.37 billion) from 2011 to 2020.
