INS Kolkata welcomed the Rafale contingent to the Indian ocean. The Rafale leader replied, “Many thanks. Most reassuring to have an Indian warship guarding seas.” INS Kolkata also wished the Rafale contingent a happy landing, “May you touch the sky with glory. Happy landings.” Five jets out of 36 ordered by the IAF from France are en route to Ambala.
