Morocco has received a rocket launcher from China, Al Watan Voice reported yesterday.

Reporting Russia Today TV, the news website said that the rocket system is referred to as AR2 and is a 12 round 300mm Multi Launch Rocket System (MLRS).

It consists of rockets, launchtube group, launch vehicles, command vehicles and transport vehicle components.

The system consists of six launchers and is able to launch 72 rockets in 30 seconds and can be reloaded in 30 minutes.

It is the most modern military equipment owned by the Moroccan army.

In late January it was reported that Morocco received three Israeli reconnaissance drones as part of $48 million arms deal.

The three Heron aircrafts arrived, reports have said, it is unclear what the military deal signed between the two countries also includes.
