French Air Force arrives in Poland with 4 Dassault Rafale Jet Fighter.
 

The French deployment to Malbork Airbase will free up the same number of Polish Air Force MiG-29 'Fulcrum' fighters to deploy to Siauliai Airbase in Lithuania as part of the NATO Baltic air policing mission. The Polish-led mission in Lithuania will be bolstered by four UK Royal Air Force (RAF) Eurofighter Typhoons at Siauliai Airbase, and four Royal Danish Air Force Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcons operating out of Amari Airbase in Estonia.

The jets have joined Poland, taking under their wing and fuselage fuel tanks called "Supersonic", adapted to the air defense missions, as well as air-to-air guided missiles Mica (both versions: infrared and electromagnetic).

Aircraft are coming from different bases such as crews from the two operational squadrons in the French Air Force Rafale C: EC-1/7 "Provence", based in Saint-Dizier, and EC-2/30 "Normandie-Niemen" of Mont-de-Marsan. Unit insignia usually painted on the tail of aircraft, however, were deleted.
