Rafale is looking at widening areas of collaborations with Malaysian partners during LIMA exhibition 2015.

Rafale announced Monday that it is showcasing its two seater and single seater fighter aircraft during the expo.

"The French Air Force Rafale were flown in specially to showcase the capabilities of the multirole fighter aircraft. The aircraft are the ones which have seen action in areas of conflict," the company said in a statement.

Along with these aircraft, Rafale International said a host of innovative and cutting edge technology would also be on display during the expo.

"It is an opportunity for us to widen our areas of collaborations with Malaysian partners and strengthen the Rafale Network of Excellence in Malaysia," it said.

The Rafale aircraft is produced by a joint-venture comprising aerospace leaders Dassault Aviation, Snecma (Safran Group) and Thales.

Dassault is offering Rafale to Malaysia, and has answered an RFI, but is still waiting for an RFP, probably for 16 to 18 fighters.
