“With the Rafale you can take off on an air-to-ground mission and switch while airborne to an aerial mission, and afterward re-change to your unique mission without losing any of the first information. On the Typhoon you can likewise switch, yet the immense contrast is that once you switch, you lose everything arranged for the underlying mission,” he clarifies.
He adds that the Typhoon can likewise fly air-to-endlessly air to-ground missions, “yet assuming the pilot needs to switch while airborne from one to the next it is exceptionally convoluted to switch back-on the Rafale it’s extremely simple.”
Mathieu Durand, a representative for Dassault Aviation, lets Popular Science know that “we thought light and multi-job would be simpler to sell. [While it was] questionable at that point, it’s taking care of now.”
