The Rafale jets will come with various India-specific modifications, including Israeli helmet-mounted displays, radar warning receivers, low band jammers, 10-hour flight data recording, infra-red search and tracking systems among others.
Supreme Court Highlights: Congress president Rahul Gandhi filed his reply today after the apex court had sought an explanation from him for allegedly attributing to the top court certain remarks in its Rafale order.
"For us, we believe the controversy over Rafale is an Indian issue. We have done all the process. We have gone through all the processes. And we know India has very specific need of such aircraft," Barbry said.
On the basis of these documents, the petitioners had sought a review of the Supreme Court's December 14, 2018 judgment that had rejected the plea for an investigation into allegations of corruption in the deal.
Last week, the government had threatened to invoke the Official Secrets Act and initiate “criminal action” against two publications which ran reports on the basis of these documents. It claimed that documents related to the Rafale fighter deal were “stolen” from the Ministry of Defence.
