Negotiations between France and Indonesia for the purchase of 48 French Rafale fighter jets are advancing at a fast pace and a deal could be inked soon, French website La Tribune.fr said on Thursday, citing several sources.
Indonesia would like to seal a deal before the end of the year but French negotiators want to take the time necessary to fine-tune the details, it said.
Rafale is an advanced 4.5 generation omnirole fighter jet capable of carrying modern weapons, an active electronically scanned array radar, electronic warfare suite, and performs maritime strike and interdiction operations.
