Last year Morocco acquired F-16 fighters equipped with advanced radar, as well as dozens of Apache attack helicopters


The US State Department has approved the sale of Patriot missiles to Morocco. It is part of Morocco's comprehensive military modernization plan aimed at creating the largest and best equipped military on the African continent.

The North African Post reported that the US International Trade Administration considered and approved the sale of the missiles and a G550 reconnaissance aircraft. The scope of the Patriot deal was not released.

Last year, Morocco purchased 25 F-16 fighters equipped with 5th generation radar (for $2.8 billion) and 24 Apache attack helicopters (for $2.6 billion). There is also a plan for the establishment of a military industry in Morocco. Far Maroc, a website specializing in Moroccan military affairs, reported that Morocco plans to operate a total of 48 advanced F-16s in its Air Force, with a goal of maintaining air superiority in North Africa.

Morocco's King Mohammed VI recently sent a message to his country's Armed Forces in which he spoke of the modernization plan and emphasized that the Armed Forces must "remain the protective shield" for the defense of the nation's "sacred values".

This reporting is doubtful. This would most likely be a FMS deal and in that case their should be a FMS notification on the US DSCA website. But there is not

It could be a DCS deal, but even then there would be more information.

The US source referred to seems to mix pains and negotiations with real deals.

Ain’t gonna happen under Biden. He just scrapped Trump executive order which gave the Southern Sahara to Morocco and hence avoided a war in North Africa. Morocco just got screwed by Trump and was left with its skivvees down under the grin moquer of Nathanyahu...Even Israel didn’t recognize the Sahara as a Moroccan property as the Arab lapdogs states.

Hardly, get other news than your local ones..The US recognition of theSouthern Sahara as Moroccan territory has been scrapped by Biden hence avoiding a war in North Africa..For the Patriot missiles, they didn’t allow Turkey to have them, a full fledge NATO member, Doubtful that Morocco, as a simple strategic partner of the US and NATO, will have them. They may station them in your country but they will stay always under their control as they did with Turkey..(which was an insult)...

Are you retarded? This is a source from AFP. One of the most reputable news sources in the world.

The only moron I see here is you..What do you want AFP, to say? France has always been the protector for their protectorat..Look for other news..Morocco has been screwed by Trump by shoving down your throat the normalisationwith Israel..The only winner is Israel..Even Israel doesn’t recognize the Western Sahara as Moroccan..The only thing that this normalisation will achieve is the dismembering of Morocco. The Sahara will go to the Sahraoui and you all be left with an internal revolt that will do away with the monarchy and will bring the creation of small states in Morocco as we are seeing happened in other Arab states now ie Lybia,, Syria, Irak, Yemen...
