French Rafale fighter aircraft lands on aircraft carrier Charles-de-Gaulle at sea off the coast of Toulon, southern France, on January 15, 2015, ahead of the ship's departure to take part in operations in the Gulf. The carrier will support operations against the Islamic State group. France currently has nine Rafale and six Mirage fighters engaged in the campaign -- based in the United Arab Emirates and Jordan -- as part of Operation Chammal launched last September.
