Comic Book On Rafale's Afghanistan Deployment

I don't read French and was hoping for an English facsimile version, but I've still ordered this comic-book on the Dassault Rafale in Afghanistan.

Yup, MICA Fox 3... real useful blasting Taliban on cheap Chinese motorcycles.

I didn't know the Taliban had Harrier jets or maybe they are shooting down the Harriers deployed by the British - The French still hate the Brits.

Cujo

Wow. Rafale hunting down Taliban airforce it seems.

Rafale in Afghanistan against Taliban. It must be an overkill by the comedians.

That might be an explanation for losing all those Indian Navy Harriers!

Win laden Rafale shooting down Bin Laden Air Force.

Remember, Armée de l'Air consider Taliban and their flying carpets as contemporary opponent but RAF was, is and always will be ALA's arch-enemy. Damn, it's so ultra cool to read comics about French Rafales blasting RAF Harriers from the skies over A-stan. I hope EF Typhus... err..., I mean EF Typhoons are next in the line.

I have this comics. It's a big advertisment for the Rafale, the scenario is a joke (BTW the Forger belongs to a Russian weapons dealer).

But if you only want to see a beautiful Rafale with his specifity, it's a good solution.
The draw is photo-realitic.


Try "Fox one", it's older but a better story.

EJ200 has beaten GE F414 for the Tejas MkII engine competition by quoting a comprehensive 23% lower price of USD 6.73M per unit against GE's offer of USD 8.30M per unit for 99 units. So finally, are we getting glimpses of what is to be the outcome of the M-MRCA saga????

As Anon @3:10AM said, try 'Fox One - Armageddon' so you can see a Rafale shooting a F-117 with its combo FLIR/Apache over Las Vegas! he he!!! (dream... sigh...)

There is also 'Unité Félin' where a Tiger helo shoots 3 Mi-35s, 2 MiG-29s and a few Russian tanks. No less...

But if you want a good scenario, you'd better try 'Buck Danny' in 'Alerte Nucléaire' (if my memory is good). Good comics with good draw and story. F-14s, B-52s, nuclear terrorists, etc.

I've also seen that Northrop has done this kind of thing with 'Special OPs 5'... A sort of ugly GI Joe with UCAVs, Fire Scouts, C4Is, Global Hawks...

;) Have a nice day everyone! It's sometimes good to be big children...
Defence industry has something childish if you look carefully. :)
And thx Shiv for this blog

The plane in question the Rafale is engaging is the Yak-38 Forger, the Russian version of a wannabe Harrier. So few of those anyways. Would be odd to see one flying. If I was that Rafale pilot I would have flown my butt off to get a closer look at it. A Forger is not gonna hurt the likes of a Rafale anyhow.
