Demo of Rafale fighter begins for Navy at Goa, F/A-18 next in March


Ahead of slated commissioning of the India’s indigenous aircraft carrier (IAC) this year, France kicked off the demonstration of its Rafale maritime fighter jet for the Indian Navy at the shore-based test facility (SBTF) in Goa on Thursday. The US is also slated to showcase its Boeing-manufactured fighter F/A-18 at the SBTF, which has a ski-jump to resemble an aircraft carrier’s deck, in March.
