Any speculation that they chose Rafale so that it can carry one munition of a certain type at low level discretely? I'll be looking out for news stories about Dassault integrating "indigenously developed munitions."

Better A2G? YES
Better tech transfer? BETTER AND MUCH SMOOTHER , NO RED TAPE
Similarity to M2000? ABSOLUTELY , SAME SUPPLIERS AND A2A MISSILES
Carrier capability? OH YES, VERY IMPORTANT
I really think capability wise they should have taken EF for A2A, SH for A2G or waited for F-35 to do it all.

Quite possible with a huge AESA with it, it should be very interesting indeed to see it clash against the chubby F-35.
