Il faut une grande expertise pour entretenir ce genre d'appareil, c'est l'hélicoptère le plus moderne dans sa catégorie donc il faut rien prendre à la légère pour cette bébête volante. 

Ça va leur faire tout drôle les équipages Gazelle de passer sur Apache :amusec: attention au choc thermique

5.Morocco 

The Moroccan Air Force’s inventory is primarily based on the requirements of ongoing conflict in Western Sahara and the need to provide basic defence against the much larger forces of neighbouring Algeria. Morocco is the only African state provided access to modern American air launched weaponry, and the backbone of its fighter fleet its formed by around 23 F-16C Fighting Falcon lightweight fighters equipped with AIM-120C7 air to air missiles. The difference in weaponry and subsystems makes Moroccan F-16s far more capable than their counterparts in Egyptian service, and other than Egypt’s recently acquired Rafale jets the Moroccan Fighting Falcons are the most capable Western fighters in Africa. The AIM-120C7’s capabilities are still beneath those of Algeria’s R-77 and R-27ER however, both of which outrange them and carry heavier payloads. The F-16s can also notably deploy AGM-88B HARM standoff air to ground missiles which are quite potent against air defence and radar sites. The remainder of the Moroccan fleet is comprised of ageing third generation designs including the F-5E Tiger II, of which 22 are in service, and 26 Mirage F1 jets. Morocco’s Mirages are considered the most capable in the world, and have been enhanced to deploy MICA missiles providing a limited beyond visual range air to air capability - still far superior to that of Egypt’s F-16s or to any of the MiG-23 variants on the continent. Ground based air defence remains a notable weakness of Moroccan forces, as does close air support, and while the country has considered acquiring S-400 air defence systems from Russia Western political pressure is likely to prevent such a deal

Merci de mettre des sources plus impartiales s'il vous plaît, Military Watch Magazine c'est le Sputnik version militaire, il veut se donner une image américaine anglo-saxone alors que c'est un outil russe de propagande, ses articles font tous l'éloge du matériel russe d'une manière zélée et sans discernement, d'ailleurs il est référencé sur Sputnik bonjour la crédibilité.

Suffit juste de voir que ce magazine classe une aviation au premier rang continental alors que cette dernière n'aligne aucune nacelle de désignation laser ou même de munitions intelligentes crédibles sur chasseur ou hélicoptère, ni radar AESA qui devient la norme des aviations crédibles et modernes, elle livre encore des bombes sous forme de bombonne de gaz.

ce n'est pas encore confirmé, mais  dans le pire des cas ca sera juste reporté de 1 ou 2 ans, le temps que le situation économique se redresse, le plus important est que l'achat des nouveaux F16 est maintenu

Quel preuve donne l'article ? Une seule preuve tangible dans l'article pour prouver leurs propos. Pas une seule, en plus un titre racoleur pour attirer des acheteurs d'articles ''l'aviation de Mohammed 6" n'importe quoi.

Même la LFR récemment votée au parlement marocain n'a pas toucher au budget de l'armée. L'article c'est 0 crédibilité. La plus haute autorité de l'état à ordonné de continuer le programme de modernisation de l'armée marocaine sur une dizaine d'années. 

Après vous pouvez y croire pour vous rassurer un peu :D

GE Aviation’s T700 engine to power Morocco’s newest Defense fleet

July 28, 2020

LYNN, MA – GE Aviation’s T700 turboshaft engine has been chosen by the Kingdom of Morocco to power its new Defense fleet of Boeing AH-64E Apache attack helicopters. Morocco will acquire 48 T700—701D engines and two spares as part of a recent contract announcement for 24 Apache helicopters.

The T700/CT7 family of turboshaft and turboprop engines power 15 types of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft with more than 130 customers in more than 50 countries. The T700/CT7 family has surpassed 20,000 units delivered and more than 100 million total flight hours. Morocco is the 17th country to acquire the AH-64 Apache, according to Boeing.

 “The T700 engine’s 40-plus year track record as a highly reliable, workhorse powerplant is indisputable,” said Ron Hutter, vice president of turboshaft engine sales at GE Aviation. “We are pleased that the Kingdom of Morocco has chosen the T700 and will provide world-class support for these engines.”

The helicopters and engines will be built and delivered under a contract with the U.S. Army through the U.S. government’s Foreign Military Sales process. In 2019, the U.S. Army awarded GE an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for the continued production of T700 engines in support of Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and other government agency program requirements through 2024. The production contract is valued at over $1B (USD) for as many as 1,700 T700 engines if completely exercised.

The T700/CT7 engine line has become increasingly more powerful and reliable during its 42-year history. Many technological advances have been incorporated into the subsequent growth versions. Current models in the 2,000-3,000 shaft-horsepower range retain the proven features and operating characteristics of earlier versions while delivering enhanced performance.

The highly reliable T700/CT7 design has proven itself in the harshest environments, logging millions of flight hours in hot-harsh combat zones like Iraq and Afghanistan. The T700 serves five branches of the U.S. military, numerous international customers and civil aviation operators.

La je crois que l'auteur d'avance un peu trop. Je vois pas le Maroc acheter des F-35. Je ne sais pas si financièrement cela est tenable, mais il ne vont quand même pas en toute logique acquérir le roi du Hangar. Si les Marocains du forum ont des infos pour confirmer ou infirmer cet article capillotracté?

Il ne faut pas sous estimer les marocains, ils sont capables de se construire de très beaux hangars.

Montée en gamme !? 

https://www.scramble.nl/military-news/dark-grey-s-92-for-morocco

Sikorsky S-92 Helibus appeared on the Internet. The helicopter, serial N308Q with construction number 92308, was captured during a test flight over Coatesville (PA) on 7 October 2020. It is reported to be the first Helibus destined for the ad-darak al-malikiyy al-maḡribiyy (Morrocan Gendarmerie Royale). Unconfirmed reports arrived at the Scramble Headquarters that Morrocan police ordered two of these S-92s, with an option of an additional one. The helicopters are said to be ordered late 2018.

Une queue blanche de 2016, vraiment pas un gros succès ce S-92...

Quelques exemplaires seulement en service, surtout pour des missions VIP : Azerbaïdjan, Koweït, Qatar, Corée du Sud, Thaïlande, Turkménistan... 

Il doit être bien cher (achat et entretien) j'ai l'impression.

Un système assez bien conçu au Maroc : ils n'achètent pas seulement les avions de chasse, mais tout l'écosystème autour (avions radars, systèmes de radars au sol...). Une modernisation intelligemment menée. 

Le 28/10/2020 à 13:53, metkow a dit :

il y'a rien de prévu dans le budget pour une possible acquisition de F-35, c'est peut-être dans les cartons mais on parle dans ce cas dans 5-10 ans.

Juste l'upgrade et la réception des F-16 ca va prendre une couple d'année.

Cela dit, quel serait l'intérêt de s'encombrer de F-35 alors que le Maroc a déjà des F-16 très performants ? Ce serait un gaspillage de ressources.
