@Philip the Arab : AML90 FSV is used in southern area, low intensity area, on the defensive wall in the Sahara, and it is very low cost maintenance material, its not expensive to deploy such FSV, so it is still in service and will remain for next years. You know saharian area , with sand ... you dont have to deploy new or expensive material, it is not smart, especially in peace time, the polisario militia is dead since 30 years they dont have the capacity to handle a war against us one time a year they try to impress the UN council saying that they will take arms, the same speech since 30 years So we deploy the strict minimum in the area. For exemple we still deploy M48 tanks and SK-105 Kurassier.

The AMX light tank also will remain in service for next years, it is still effective, deployed on north-east area, he work with Abrams for fire support and recco + some light vehicles with ATGM and light artillery.

AGM-84-Harpoon-on-F-16.jpg


Harpoon Block II is an all-weather over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile (ASHM) manufactured by Boeing Defence, Space & Security. It is one of the world’s most advanced anti-ship missiles capable of performing both land-strike and anti-ship missions.

There are variants of the Harpoon missile that can be launched from aerial platforms, surface ships, submarines, and coastal defense batteries. Unlike other variants, the air-launched version (AGM-84) is not equipped with a solid-fuel rocket booster.

* According to the United Nations Register of Conventional Weapons, Morocco received six HARPOON anti-ship missiles in 2017. Egypt is currently the only other North African nation to operate the missile.

With a range of 220-280km and a 221kg warhead, the AGM-84 HARPOON is a flexible and powerful weapon system.

But Egypt operate the version launched from ships, isn't it ? this version acquired by Morocco is the AGM, air launched version for our F16 Block 72.

It is the first time that we operate air-sea missile in our arsenal. This is a response to the frigates of neighbour navies.

Yes Egypt operates the Harpoon mostly on its submarines and a few ships..Morocco does not have that capability apparently..yet
Still it is a very good addition to the armed forces in general..

Can you put the link of this information please ? An M country ? Dont understand
NORINCO usually use the first letter to represent the country. And we also know it is an african country. So it could be Morocco, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania or Marutitus. I believe it could only be Morocco as the other 4 country may even not have anti-tank missiles!
