Morocco receives first Turkish drones Bayraktar TB2

Morocco received the first Turkish combat drones Bayraktar TB2, while the other units are expected soon in accordance with the contract signed between the Kingdom and the Turkish manufacturer Baykar in April.

The Royal Armed Forces (FAR) reportedly ordered a total of 13 drones and several members of the FAR received training in the aircraft in Turkey last July.

Morocco had already started to use drones for intelligence purposes, but the new order aims to “acquire the dissuasive capacities” necessary for the defense of the borders and the interests of the Kingdom and therefore ensure air-to-ground strikes from drones.

Morocco is therefore continuing to strengthen its fleet of unmanned aircraft while these Turkish units could be supplemented by American SeaGardian drones soon.
