    I think the turkish MALE UAV “Anka” could be a better Option for Morocco than the Predator ! Turkey could share Tecchnology, this important for Morocco to built a aeronautical industrial Base. Anka delivered by Turkey could not have any Restriction on Capabilities of the UAV, like by Us or french built will be the Case !

    The strategic Position of Morocco is important for Turkey to strengthen it’s Influence on sub – saharan Region and for Control of the straigth of Gibraltar !
