No , since recent years , we diversified the trainings of our officers . They have training based on their position in the army. For example, the Navy, they have French / European training, because most of our boats are either french (FREEM) or from European countries (SIGMA ---> Holland / Spain ...).The air force is France (MF-2000; Alphajets) / USA (F-16, F-5) training.
And the Army, I would say that it is mainly French, but also USA / Russia training .

In addition, the Moroccan army has always had several types of material from different countries, a real "casse tete " :

MBT : T72 , VT1A/mbt 2000 (chinese) , M1a1(200 ordered) , M60A3TTS
Artillery : All the M 109 family , and recently we ordered Russian MSTA-S / AMX-F3 ; FH-70 ; L-118 ; M-46 ; M-101 ; M-109 ; M-110 ; M-114 ; M-198 ; BM-21 ; AR-2 / PHL-03
ATGM : Euromissile HOT ; BGM-71 TOW ; APILAS ; MILAN ; Metis-M ; Kornet ; Konkurs ; AT-3 Sagger ; HJ-8L ,
Aircraft defence : Chaparal, Tunguska , Shilka, Mim-23 Hawk
APC's : M-113A1/A2 ; VAB VTT/VCI ; Ratel-60/90 ; AIFV-B-50/B-C25
.... and it's like this (Aircraft , warships... ) in all the field of the Moroccan army , always USA, France,Russia and China and also Belgium, Austria, Spain...

So the type of training are various and from various countries .


And we also do exercises with the British Army "Jebel Sahara" and with the Royal Gibraltar Regiment .
