Qatar QEAF Rafale delivery 640Seventh batch of QEAF Rafales delivered

The seventh batch of Al-Quwwat Al-Jawiyyah Al-Amiriyyah Al-Qatariyyah (QEAF, Qatar Emiri Air Force) Dassault Rafales departed Bordeaux/Mérignac (France) on delivery to Qatar on 9 November 2021. 

The three aircraft involved are all Rafale DQ two-seaters. The fighters were accompanied by a QEAF C-17A Globemaster III registered (A7-)MAO and a Qatar Airways Amiri Flight Airbus A340-211 registered A7-HHK. Both transporters arrived a few days before. 

The following Rafale DQs were delivered: QA201, QA208 and QA209 as ADIYAT11, ADIYAT12 and ADIYAT13

Although Scramble Magazine assesses that six Rafale EQs (QA231/QA236) are still to be delivered, none of these have emerged yet.
