Official contract is signed for 18 aircraft, following provisional agreement in September 2020.

The procurement division of the Hellenic Ministry of National Defence officially signed a contract with Dassault to acquire 18 Rafale fighters plus a separate deal for ‘associated logistic support’, the French aircraft manufacturer announced on 25 January.

This follows a draft agreement signed in September 2020.

The €2.49 billion ($3.02 billion) deal includes six new-build and 12 ex-French Air and Space Force aircraft, to be delivered to the Hellenic Air Force (HAF) in the next two years, as well as  missiles from MBDA and Safran (AASM Hammer).

Under the logistics contract, Dassault stated that it will support the HAF Rafale fleet until mid-2025, maintaining the availability of equipment and systems ‘at the highest level’.
