Ghana

Italy

Since independence, Ghana has relied on Italy for an array of military aircraft. In early 1966, the GAF established a jet fighter/ground-attack squadron, which was composed of seven Italian Aermacchi MB-326s (within two years, three of these aircraft crashed and were later replaced). A small group of Italian Air Force instructors supervised this squadron. From 1983 to 1984, the GAF accepted delivery of eight SIAI-Marchetti SF-260TP turboprop trainers. In mid-1987, Ghana ordered two Aermacchi MB-339 jet trainers.

Libya

Little is known about the Ghanaian-Libyan military relationship. An unknown number of Libyan military personnel have participated in Ghanaian military exercises as observers. During the second Rawlings regime, an undetermined number of Libyan soldiers received jungle warfare training in Ghana. In May 1983, the Ghanaian government admitted that it had received unspecified quantities of military equipment, mostly artillery pieces and ammunition, as gifts from Libya. To all appearances, Accra's ties to Libya weakened after Ghana moved closer to the West in the late 1980s.
