Morocco plans to acquire the "Spider" air defense system
According to news reports, the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces entered into negotiations with the Israeli defense company “Rafael” to acquire the advanced Israeli air defense system “Spider”.
This system is characterized by the fact that it includes two types of surface-to-air missiles, namely “Python 4” and “Derby”, in addition to its ability to confront various types of aircraft, including manned and unmanned aircraft, as well as helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The system has the ability to intercept precision-guided munitions at short and low to medium altitudes, in addition to its ability to defend against chemical and biological threats.
This comes within the framework of strengthening military cooperation between Israel and Morocco since the normalization of relations between the two countries, as Israeli military observers participated in the “African Lion 2022” military exercises in Morocco, and the Israeli Minister of Defense signed a memorandum of understanding in Rabat to regulate security relations with Morocco.
The agreement also included cooperation between the intelligence agencies, the development of military industries, the purchase of weapons and joint training.
The SPIDER defense system is used by many countries around the world and is among the most effective air defense systems.
It seems that the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces are currently studying the opportunity to acquire this system to enhance its defense capabilities.
When a business man becomes a king with no clue about geo-politics, such betrayals become inevitable.
Morocco has gone full retard.
