The 2012 NATO Tiger Meet “Arctic Tiger” was held from May 29, 2012 to June 8. It took place at Ørland MAS (Main Air Station) Norway and hosted by the 338 Skvadron of the Royal Norwegian Air Force. One of the participating aircraft was Dassault Rafale, 118-EF (c/n 102) Armée de l’Air (French AF). This aircraft is operated by Escadron de Chasse et d'Expérimentation. The "Spirit of eXperementations" painted on its nose is related to the units title. The unit is responsible for testing aircraft and weapons.

Rafale means ”Gust of Wind” or “Gust of Fire”. This aircraft is a twin-engine, canard delta wing and multirole fighter. With the varied payload available and electronics the Rafale is capable of carrying out any type of mission. After a disagreement with the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain concerning the “Future European Fighter Aircraft” work sharing, Dassault decided to go it alone and began developing the Rafale. In July 1986 the prototype made its first flight. After lengthy delays the Rafale went into production in 2001.
