The NATO Association of Tiger Squadrons was esablished in 1961 to promote solidarity between NATO air forces. Each year, it holds a "Tiger Meet" to give member nations an opportunity to train together in simulated battle over the skies of Europe. As well as being opportunities for NATO air forces to share ideas and experiences, the meets are also public relations exercises and participating squadrons often decorate their aircraft with elaborate tiger-striped paint schemes. The 2012 NATO Tiger Meet "Arctic Tiger" was held from May 29 to June 8. It took place at Orland MAS (Main Air Station) Norway and hosted by the 338 Skvadron of the Royal Norwegian Air Force. One of the participating aircraft was Rafale C, 118-EF (c/n 102) Armee de l'Air (French Air Force). This aircraft is operated by Escadron de Chasse et d'Experimentation 05.330. The "Spirit of eXperementations" painted on its nose is related to the units title. The unit is responsible for testing aircraft and weapons.

Dassault Rafale C

Designed as a result of the ACX (Avion de Combat Experimentale) program prior to France's withdrawl from the EFA project, the Rafale was first flown on July 4th, 1986. The Rafale is multi-role fighter for the Franch Air Force and Navy, capable of handling missions from reconnaissance to air supremacy to nuclear deterrence. The Rafale built on Dassault's expertise with delta-winged fighter design, adding a forward canard to improve maneuverability and reduce approach speeds for carrier operations. The Rafale's advanced avionics and and limited stealth capabilities are expected to secure it as the primary combat aircraft for the French Air Force and Navy until at least 2040.
