While a lot can be known about the Rafale and also be seen in YouTube videos most civilians will rarely get a chance to see it up close. So, if you are itching to get a feel of what it takes to fly a Rafale fighter jet then you can thank the Indian Air Force for having a simulation game available for free on both iOS and Android.
The simulation game called ‘Indian Air Force – A Cut Above’ allows users to choose from aircrafts like Tejas, Rafale, Mirage-2000, Su-30 among others.

The game allows players to simulate IAF missions and also there’s a mission dedicated to wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman. There are 10 missions in total to try out in the game. It supports online multiplayer gaming too in which different players can compete against each other in the game. Multiplayer game has two modes – a squad vs squad where players team up, and a free for all, where the last man standing will be the winner.
Apart from flying fighter planes, gamers will also get the chance to go on missions as aid to civil authorities in the form of Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief. To add more thrill to the game, the developers have given the option to use long range missiles in the game as well.
If you happen to complete the new game, you can also try the older “Guardians of Skies” game of IAF. There are other additional 10 missions featuring various IAF roles.
