    Funny how brand spanking new F-16Vs supposedly existed only in the minds of Moroccans and Egyptians. :lol:

    Meanwhile El Maghreb looking stronger and stronger with some of these latest and sweetest. More new Vipers will make an amazing addition to an already potent AF.

    Washington supplies Morocco with 20 old F-16s waiting for 12 new ones

    "Al-Sabah" said that the Pentagon promised to supply the Moroccan army with 20 F-16s, pending the manufacture of 12 new ones and the upgradet of 12 old ones, following the unprecedented visit by Abdul Fattah al-Warraq, General De corps D'arme, to the United States, with other senior officials of the Royal Armed Forces, where he held secret negotiations with senior officials of the US Department of Defense.

    The US Defense Department confirmed that the Moroccan army will receive a new arsenal of US aircraft and weapons of their own, especially the "air-to-air", which included a deal with the company, "Rethion", advanced missiles on the F-16 fighter jets.

    Informed sources (not confirmed officially yet..)

    This means Morocco will have 24 F-16 V by 2021..plus 11 F-16 Block 52+ (most likely to be upgraded to V after the first batch upgrade..).. plus 20 used F-16 (most likely Block 40 or 52 , which are also upgradable to the V version)
    For a total of 55 F-16s.. not bad at all.. I think the addition of a squadron of 12 used F-15s will give Morocco a very potent airforce..

    Morocco’s Army Reportedly Negotiating Purchase of Turkish T-129 Helicopters

    A delegation of the Royal Armed Forces recently visited the Ankara-based Turkish Aerospace Industries headquarters to negotiate the purchase of T-129 attack helicopters, the much coveted aircraft by international air forces.

    According to FAR-Maroc, a website specializing in defense issues, senior officers of the Royal Armed Forces have just made a trip to Turkey to negotiate the acquisition of these combat helicopters, that were recently used by Turkey in the battle of Afrine in Syria, under the codename “olive branch”.

    The acquisition of these helicopters will strengthen the FAR’s deterrent capacity and enrich their fleet consisting mainly of reconnaissance and combat helicopters “Gazelle”, “Bell 205” and “Belle 206”, “Chinooks” and “Predator” drones (USA) and “Eads Harfang” (EU), FAR-Maroc stated.
    According to the website, several international armies showed interest in purchasing the Turkish aircraft, including the Pakistani air force, which placed in 2018 an order for 30 T-129 attack helicopters.
    The T129, developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries with partner AgustaWestland, is a twin-engine, tandem seat, multi-role, all-weather attack helicopter.
    The aircraft is designed for advanced attack and reconnaissance in hot and high environments and rough geography in both day and night conditions.

    It seems like Morocco have not only interest in ATAK, also for Anka-S. I read in an moroccan Forum claimed by a turkish User Morocco is interested for T-129 ATAK, Anka-S and Hurkus. These Systems will strengthen CAS and intelligence Capabillities of RMAF.

    Curious, what is Morocco's position regarding several enclaves and islands in Mediterranean and in Atlantic off the coast of Morocco under Spanish rule.... Does Morocco claim those enclaves ?
