The French Ministry of Defense has been releasing some really interesting footage of French forces in action in Mali.

On Feb. 15 cockpit footage of a Rafale taking off and what appears to be a backseater in a two seat Rafale searching for targets using a targeting pod was released.

The footage finishes with two Rafale taking on fuel from a US Air Force KC-135 of the 100th Air Refueling Wing, normally based at RAF Mildenhall (UK) but are operating out of Moron airbase Spain.
