“We would like to have more (Rafales). It is a decision that will be taken in the near future depending on the capability, desirability and the right mix of various aircraft,” said Raha.
He refused to take questions on the “surgical strikes” by the Army last week in PoK.
But he said the IAF is prepared for any eventuality. “The capability of the IAF is not country-specific. It is based on strategic reach and meant to deter adversaries. But when we are asked to do so, we have the capability to fight.”
