Greek lawmakers approved the purchase of 18 Dassault-made Rafale jets from France for 2.5 billion euros ($3.04 billion) on Thursday,
in a deal due to be signed by the Greek and French defence ministers later this month.
The agreement for six new and 12 used Rafale jets
is expected to be signed by France and Greece in Athens this month
and the first deliveries are expected during the first half of the year,
the government has said.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ conservative government
has said it wants to invest in the armed forces, increasing personnel, acquiring new frigates, helicopters and drones,
and upgrading its existing fleet of F-16 fighters.

Parliament is also expected to vote next week on a bill
extending Greece’s western territorial waters in the Ionian Sea to 12 nautical miles from six,
Mitsotakis told local ANT1 TV.

332 Mira at Tanagra will operate them. The older deux-milles are to be decommissioned or sold.

...apparently six more Rafales are to be delivered to Greece.
That would make it 24 jets.

Will dig up the news feature later on.

The contractor Red Air folks have to be eyeballing those frames.... Good compliment to the numerous F-1's already operating.

The Greece Prime minister announced the buy of 6 more Rafales.

https://primeminister.gr/2021/09/11/27393

Not much details. Just one sentence about Rafales in a long speech. Going from 18 to 24 ordered. No mention of new or second hand French.

F3R standard aircraft apparently. So, if correct should be new-build ones?.
