Bold statement, I know, but it's true. The cri-cri is far superior to the rafale in many ways which I shall list:
1: It's so much better to look at
It's a piece of art. JUST LOOK AT IT!
I'm not even going to link a picture to the rafale for a comparison because it will just break your screen with how ugly it is
2: so much cheaper
The Rafale costs millions to buy, which is stupidly over priced. Why would anyone buy a plane (if you can even call a Rafale a plane) for millions upon millions when you can spend less than 20k on a cri-cri? It makes no sense. Literally none.
3: far better aerial superiority
The cri-cri is far better at air to air combat than the Rafale, this is proven easily. Neither have any confirmed kills but simulated I don't think any plane (bar the Po-2) can beat the cri-cri, it's just way too powerful
As you can see, there are 3 great reasons why the cri-cri is a superior aircraft to the Rafale.
