    It's only than your king prays that his American friends will keep him in power for more by making them favors. It's the same 70 years now, nothing new.
    Moroccan army's hardware is always second rate and overpriced because is not intended to ever be used but to buy diplomatic muscle. Lets face reality asap.

    Holly cow i think you misleaded Morocco with the eastern frontiers, Overpriced ?? give me ONE deal that you think it was overpriced.

    It's not like We are the one buying old garbage for the price on new one  clown 

    And for your information what you called second rate hardware was already used in 1963 ... just ask who you know they'll tell you what it taste.

    BTW Thanks Adam but nothing new on this video.

    Not any that I knew about either but countries like to keep their neighbors in check in case relations ever go down the drain.

    First Abrams tanks delivered to Morocco



    The Moroccan social networks have been made published July 10, 2016 in Casablanca, pictures of transport by trailers of three American tanks M1A1 Abrams. Apparently, this is the first set of Morocco M1A1SA tanks from the stocks of the US Army, from 222 offered for delivery at the expense of US military aid.

    Recall that June 18, 2012 US Department of Defense Agency for Military Cooperation (Defense Security Cooperation Agency - DSCA) issued a press release about the released of him to the notification to the US Congress about the forthcoming delivery of Morocco through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of 200 M1A1 tanks Abrams configuration M1A1 Special Armor (SA) for a total estimated amount of $ 1.015 billion.. The tanks were to be taken from the stocks of the US army, followed by repair and modernization, and put Morocco in the framework of the transmission of the program abroad weapons surplus and military equipment excess Defense Article ( EDA) in respect of the grant, which the US Congress was notified April 27, 2012.

    In August 2015 Senator Rob Portman of Ohio said the agreement is fully prepared to supply Morocco now 222 M1A1 Abrams tanks from the stocks of American army on the FMS line.

    Coglasno reported 222 alleged to supply Morocco Abrams tanks, pre-sale preparation and modernization of 200 tanks carried on is located in Lima (Ohio), the only functioning in the US tank factory Joint Systems Manufacturing Center (JSMC), located in the US government property, but since 1996 year-controlled corporation General Dynamics. At the plant in Lima 50 tanks to Morocco must undergo repairs and upgrades to M1A1SA level in 2016, while the remaining 150 - in 2017.

    The first 22 tanks to Morocco, according to Moroccan sources, took place repair and upgrade on a tank repair factory US Army's Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) in Anniston (Alabama). Presumably, these 22 Abrams tanks and are now delivered by sea to Morocco.
