                    • I edit, I´ve just read in the FAR-Maroc forum the answer of my question.

                      222+162 Abrahams, you have more modern mbt´s than any European country.

                          Yes and there will be more arms buys because we are in war,and we have enemies like the "polisario front" separatists and alegría,and our situation isn't the same of any european country.

                          • Well, maybe MBT´s to fight Frente Polisario is a little bit exagerated, you usually deploy this equipment in the border with Algeria, isn´t it?

                            • I had my doubts about the number of Abrahams that Morocco will have, and according to Infodefensa, these 162 are not new tanks, but an improvement/modernization of already existent MBT´s, so the final number of tanks, will stay the same.
