The upcoming visit of Indian Air Force Chief to Greece is being seen as a major ‘Game Changer’ as the Greek Air Force also operates the Rafale F3R standard aircraft and it will be an opportunity for both the Air Forces to work together and share information on the Rafale aircraft.

"The Hellenic Air Force has acquired both planes and will have a clear idea of the operational aspects of a Rafale vs F16 C/D matchup," said high-level sources. Currently, the F16C/D is the best fighter Pakistan has. It has the F16A/B, but it belongs to a previous generation. So, the Greeks, having both the Rafale and the F16C/D will have a clear and also impartial view as far as the performances of both planes are concerned and how they compare with each other operationally. This will help the IAF in dealing with the Pakistan Air Force, if necessary. F16C/Ds in the future.

Greek Analysts have repeatedly talked about the possibility of buying the Air-Launched variant of BrahMos-NG for its Rafale fighter jets and that an alliance between Greece and India would help counter Turkey and Pakistan.

With both countries having the Rafale, it will be an opportunity to work together and share information on the fighter. At the moment, apart from France and India, there are only about half and dozen countries that fly the Rafale. The Greeks have considerable experience with the Rafale.

The strategic aspect of the visit comes from the fact that the Greeks have a difficult relationship with Turkey, also a NATO country. This is a problem that has persisted for many years. While India and Turkey have diplomatic and also economic ties, Ankara's military help to Islamabad has caused considerable concern.
