“With the Ground Master 400, the Royal Moroccan Air Forces have a decisive advantage in terms of protection of their territory and air surveillance. This new contract testifies to the renewed confidence of the Moroccan authorities in Thales, a long-standing partner of the country ”, explains Christophe Salomon, Deputy Managing Director Land and Air Systems, Thales.
