From the publisher:
Designed in the mid-1980s, the Dassault Aviation Rafale entered service in 2004 for the French navy, and in 2006 for the air force, as divergent needs forced France to drop its European partners earlier in the project (Germany, UK, Spain, and Italy).

Flagship of French aviation, the Rafale has incomparable advantages: versatility, stealth, versatility, or multi-role capability. Despite its prowess, it remained in the shadows for years in terms of international export.

Recent geopolitical developments are set to change the game; the Rafale finally recorded its first commercial success with orders from Qatar, Egypt, and perhaps India.
The book addresses three versions of the aircraft: the Rafale C (single-seat aircraft for the air force), the Rafale M (designed by the navy to integrate with carriers), and the Rafale B (two-seater).


FSM says:
Well-suited to modelers, with photos from many aspects of the aircraft, detail close-ups, and 24 different color schemes.
