The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has notified Congress of the approval of the potential foreign military sale, which would include F-16 support equipment, spares and repair parts, personnel training and training equipment, and publications and technical documentation.

It would also include support for weapons used on the fleet, including AMRAAM, CMBRE, JDAM, and Paveway.

This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a major non-NATO ally that is important for political stability and economic progress in North Africa, the DSCA said. 

Furthermore, the continued sustainment of the F-16 in Morocco strengthens the interoperability with the United States and other regional allies, it added.
