The second batch of Rafale fighter aircraft has arrived in India amid the ongoing tension along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh with China. With the addition of three more Rafale fighter aircraft to India, the strength of the Indian Air Force has increased. These powerful aircraft are already going to be more powerful. Now these fighter jets are going to be more powerful, because now they will be equipped with Hammer missile. The Hammer means the Highly Agile and Maneuverable Munitions Actuated Range (Hammer), an air-to-ground missile kit. It moves via rocket.
In fact, France has agreed to equip the Indian fighter aircraft Rafale with a hammer. Explain that Rafale is already equipped with deadly MICA, Meteor and SCALP missiles. But now Rafale’s strength will increase further after being equipped with Hammer missile. According to the reports, the Hammer is a very dangerous weapon, which can be launched from a very long range of 70 km from a very short distance even without GPS.
