The Moroccan government’s military transport wing has taken delivery of the first of four C-27J Spartans that it ordered from Alenia Aeronautica in October 2008. The aircraft, which arrived at Kenitra air base on July 7, is equipped with the self-protection suite but does not feature an in-flight refuelling probe. Morocco has become the first non-NATO operator of the Spartan, which is already in use with six air forces–those of Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Romania and the U.S. A seventh country, Slovakia, also has selected the C-27J.
