The Rafale C, known in the Ace Combat series as the R-C01 is a French fighter aircraft manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was originally designed to be the French Air Force's main fighter jet, with the Rafale B serving the role of a trainer aircraft.
In Air Combat, the R-C01 is a fighter aircraft operated by the coup d'état air forces. Two units appear as non-vital enemies in the mission "Destroy Military Port Facilities", and another two appear as optional targets in "Repel Enemy from Captured Port".
Under the player's use, the R-C01 is a quick and nimble combat aircraft. Mobility and stability are high; however, speed is average and both offense and defense have low stats. The aircraft is piloted by wingman Anna. Before purchase, the R-C01 has a pitch black paint scheme.
