ATHENS -- The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, announced on September 11 that the government will order six additional Rafale combat aircraft from France. Once placed, the overall order for Rafales by Greece will rise to 24 aircraft.

Greece ordered its first batch of 18 fighters back in January under a deal estimated between €2.3-€2.5 billion ($2.7-$3 billion). That order involved 6 new-build models and 12 second-hand units (F3-O4T variants delivered to the French Air Force between 2012 and 2018) with the latter intended to defray some of the overall cost and expedite delivery.

The first aircraft was delivered on July 21.

The Greek government did not disclose whether the latest order for six Rafales will involve new-build models or used French Air Force aircraft.

Once fully operational the Rafales will serve as replacements for the Hellenic Air Force's inventory of older, non-modernized Mirage 2000s purchased back in 1985.
