Morocco orders 10 AGM-84L Harpoon Block II missiles

15th April 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Morocco has placed an order for 10 AGM-84L Air Launched Harpoon Block II missiles from Boeing which has been approved through the FMS process.

It comes after another FMS for 10 AGM-84L missiles was also approved for India on 14 April.

The FMS to Morocco is reported to be worth $62 million and will also include the provision of containers, spare and repair parts, support and testing equipment as well as technical documentation and training support.

The sale was justified on the grounds that it would ‘improve the security of a major non-NATO ally that continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in North Africa.’

Morocco intends to use the AGM-84L to arm its fleet of F-16 multirole fighter aircraft (pictured) which protect critical sea-lanes.
