RMAF to receive three Block 52 F-16s
The Royal Moroccan Air Force (RMAF) is set to receive three of the 24 Block 52 configuration of the F-16C/D aircraft which will form a central part of its modern fleet of fighters.
Above: Three Block 52 F-16s for the Royal Moroccan Air Force (RMAF) line up for take-off for the final delivery flight to Morocco (22 August 2012) from NAS Fort Worth JRB.
The Kingdom of Morocco purchased the aircraft in 2008 and is acquiring the tailored Block 52 configuration of the F-16C/D aircraft to meet the specific requirements of the RMAF. The sale included the aircraft, mission equipment, support equipment and a spares and technical support package.
Morocco is the twenty-fifth nation to operate the F-16 and the new aircraft will supplement the RMAF's existing fleet of fighter aircraft and will contribute to the upgrade and modernisation of the RMAF.
