Morocco withdrawed from yemen in 2018 due to a short crisis with KSA that was resolved years later ,and participated because iran supported Polisario front so we responded striking their affiliates in yemen (tit for tat)
but Moroccan army won't participate in external wars for now due to tension in the sahara

The process of familiarization of Moroccan pilots had started since the American Agency for Defense and Security Cooperation (DSCA) agreed, almost 2 years ago, to deliver 36 Apache helicopters to the Royal Armed Forces. AH-64E “Guardian”, the cost of which is estimated at 4.2 billion dollars.

The first Moroccan to have piloted this type of military apparatus is Colonel Khaled Samit, commander of the AeroCombat squadron of the FRA. It was in the United States at UTAH in July 2019.

The latter will accompany their counterparts to unravel the mysteries and discover the techniques of these helicopters.

During the sand war, morocco captured 4 Egyptian officers, who came to support the #Algerian army. On the right of the picture, we can recognize the former President of the #Egyptian Republic, Housni Mubarak. This was before he became president of egypt. 9F61A4B9-49F0-4378-ACFD-0B10AC05897C.jpeg

LOL it is about quality not quantity and the global firepower data should not be used to say an X country is better than a Y country and and Algerian military heavily relies on soviet/Russian doctrine which focuses on having more tanks and planes than having modern tech
By your logic you say that if Algeria has 3000 t-72 old tanks and Morocco only 300 modern tanks but you forgot how Arab armies who have even 100000 tanks were wiped out by western modern armies ( Iraq Libya Syria etc)
And Moroccan army is silently upgrading its inventory to keep pace while Algerian army still believes that it is stronger with the obsolete doctrine of Arab armies
quantity has a quality all its own , in terms of technology the algerian army operates more up to date platforms than it's moroccan counterpart , the only "up to date " weapons that equips the moroccan army are the F-16blk 52 and the abrams tanks as for now , so kindly stop saying bullshit
