The problem is that there is a delay between the moment when it is decided to increase production and the moment when deliveries are made at the rate decided.Thats overall rafale production?! i thought it will be touching 30
It takes three years to see the results of these decisions.
So 2021 deliveries are made at the rate decided in 2018 and 2022 corresponds to the 2019 decisions and in 2019 Dassault's Rafale order book was almost empty.
So 2022 is a low point, 2023 should be at 22 aircraft and 2024 at 33.
We thought this was the maximum possible, but Dassault said it could go up to 55 planes per year, not counting the assembly lines it can install abroad.
