There must be something perfectly unheard of in the Algerian air force for more than a year after the normalization Tel Aviv, Rabat and while the entity has just had the approval under the agreements signed, the court of Mohammed VI to open a military base or even a factory of kamikaze drones at the gates of Algeria, Israel pushes the Emirates to commit such a foolishness.
After placing a firm order for 80 Rafale fighter jets with France, the United Arab Emirates is preparing to hand over a fleet of 68 Mirage 2000-9 fighter jets to Morocco and Egypt.
On the occasion of the visit to Dubai of French President Emmanuel Macron, the United Arab Emirates signed an agreement to acquire 80 Rafale fighter jets, the Elysee Palace said in a statement, noting that this is the largest international order ever for the fighter jet that has been in service since 2004.
The order is said to replace the 60 Mirage 2000s acquired in 1998 by the Emirates, some of which will be transferred to Morocco and others to Egypt.
The Mirage 2000-9 is the last version of this type that was manufactured in France for the UAE Air Force. The aircraft is equipped with highly advanced technologies that enable it to carry out high-precision air attacks.
This multipurpose fighter, the latest version of the Mirage 2000 family, is equipped with a multi-mode pulsed Doppler radar (RDY), a digital camera, the IMEWS system, the Thomrad secure radio system with advanced coding, LCD screens and a digital recording system that has four simultaneous screens, night vision goggles and an inertial gyroscope for the laser navigation system.
Morocco is also in the process of acquiring eight Caracal H225m helicopters, which will be added to its military fleet. This timely contract and the conclusion of negotiations for a contract to acquire eight H225M Caracal helicopters from Airbus Helicopters have brought the Moroccan and French parties together.
It remains to be seen whether these expensive and perfectly calibrated sales, all of which are related to Algerian capabilities, and which come at a time when Le Drian is preaching peace and Franco-Algerian reunion, will be able to counter the Sukhoi and Mig-29 of the Algerian Air Force, or whether there will be other such announcements, in order to guess the main question, which is this: is Israel devilishly afraid of Algerian pilots? After all, these are the same pilots who in the 1980s repelled a squadron of Israeli fighters who came to bomb Palestinian fighters, which seems to have been perfectly anchored in the minds of the Zionists. But will the Emirati war fleet delivered with Jupiter’s help to Rabat be able to engage in aerial combat if the US-Israel axis succeeds in setting the Algerian borders ablaze? Of course not, given the gap between an Algerian army that has faith in the righteousness of its pro-Palestine cause and a Moroccan army that serves in this case as a screen for Zionist officers. Moreover, this would be a great opportunity for the Algerian army to hunt its first Mirage 2000 and why not to extend its hunting to the Sahel. It will not be the Malians nor the Nigerians, let alone the Burkinabes who will complain…
“Morocco is determined to carry out the plan to modernize its military arsenal that it has begun in recent years, while the Moroccan finance bill for 2022 has allocated $12.8 billion for the purchase and repair of equipment for the Royal Moroccan Army.
Observers of the global arms race reiterate that this huge budget allocated by the Kingdom of Morocco to strengthen its military arsenal with new agreements expected to be concluded during 2022, is the highest on the African continent, and has even surpassed the budget devoted by Algeria to its military forces for the same year.
