French Mirage 2000 & Rafale fighters parked side-by-side on the tarmac.
A sight that could become common at Indian Airbases too, in the near future. A line-up of France's latest aircraft, the Rafale, parked alongside the older Mirage 2000. The Indian Air Force [IAF] too operates the latter & the former had recently been declared contest winner of the multi-billion dollar Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft [MMRCA] acquisition programme.

This photograph was recently shot at the Évreux-Fauville Air Base in France.
Given that the roundels painted on French & IAF aircrafts appear virtually the same from a distance, you might just be looking at a fleet of Indian Air Force's Rafale parked alongside its Mirage 2000s at some rain-drenched Air Force base, somewhere in the North-East, perhaps. Okay, squadron insignia needs to be neglected, too.
