Eight Swedish Gripen fighters and three Rafale fighters were part of a two-week long exercise called Bernadotte. The joint exercise, which was held in France, was an opportunity for both the air forces to test their inter-operational capabilities.
The exercise consisted of missions that depicted general threat scenarios. The idea was to learn to operate under unfamiliar conditions, and with different kinds of fighters.

The exercise lasted for two weeks.
