I have no idea how they manage the flight, refueling and stop en route, but recovering 7,000 km in 3 days seems a bit too long. If they fly non-stop, they'd arrive roughly in 7 hours.

It is seldom a straight line flight route because of over land flight restrictions by other countries. Refueling frequency is also not your typical petrol stops as contingency planning requires sufficient on board fuel to divert to a friendly land base in case of emergency.

On a separate note, the hype begins with the imminent induction of the Rafale.

It claimed that Modi almost declared a full-scale war on Doklam based on "hyping" of India-US Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement but prevented by lack of arms stockpiles.

Now with the arrival of Rafale and recently Quad navy exercise, I am not even sure what's on his mind anymore.

, on a par with Dassault (France) and Airbus D&S (Germany).
As a result, Indra noted in a 28 July statement, Spanish industry (including ITP and SATNUS) will be able to increase its participation in the programme.

Indra is also entering into international industrial agreements that enable it to consolidate its position in the demonstration phase, where it will lead (alongside Airbus and Dassault) the inter-pillar consistency/SIMLAB element of NGWS/FCAS.
The company is also jointly leading the Sensors development strand with Thales and German consortium FCMS; and it will participate as main partner alongside Thales in the Airbus-led Combat Cloud.

Indra estimates that development and production of NGWS/FCAS will generate billions of euros in investment in the decades ahead. Initial estimates point to a potential figure of €300 billion ($3.5 billion) over the next 40 years.

Ugh, remind of the days of how people on the internet brainstorm ways of how J-8II and a handful of Su-27SK is going to beat the F22 raptor or how in Early development of F-35, people claim how Su-35 would smack the shit out of F-35.

NEW OR USED?

Western countries are hoodwinking developing countries with overpriced weapons systems. This is the paint job on a supposedly brand new French Dassault Rafale fighter for the Indian Air Force on their arrival in India. Each aircraft has been sold by France to India at a package price of $242 million. The other theory is that this first batch of 5 Rafales for India are second-hand ex-French Air Force aircraft.
