    Why is this thread not stickied?

    The modernisation program of the Moroccan army is going nicely.
    So far in the past few years:

    • AH-64 Apache E Guardian Helicopters (36)
    • F-16 block 70/72 (25 brand new and 23 upgraded)
    • M1A1 and M1A2 Abrams Tanks (384)
    • TOW anti-tank missiles (3600)
    • Sky Dragon 50 medium range anti-air defense system (24)
    • Pleiades high-resolution Earth observation satellites (2)
    • Chinese WS-2 Rocket System (~36)
    • PHL-03/AR/AR2/AR3. (72)
    • Gulfstream G- 550 ISR

    Possible future or rumored purchases:
    • MIM-104 Patriot American air defense system
    • HQ-9B air defense system
    • HIMARS M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System
    • Bradley IFV

    Morocco needs to focus on its Air Force Size to at least 150 to 200 Major Fighter jets like F-16 and Euro Fighter or Rafael or others. Also they need to go or more Frigates and also induct Submarines.

    That is the plan.
    A further $11.5 Billions have been allocated to future military procurement in the coming two years. Rumors are circulating that we might get a couple Type 212 Subs and our boys are already training in Greece and Portugal on them.

    Yes, although the relationship is not in its best condition right now or since the falling out we had after the Qatar embargo and Morocco refusing to pick a side. The ruling party in Morocco is the PJD which is somewhat close to the muslim brotherhood, so the UAE and KSA are not in good terms with it.

    Why did Morocco not pick a side? I was under the impression that KSA/UAE would fund Moroccan purchases as they did Egyptian purchases for being an ally.
