Media: Poland threatened to abandon the purchase of Patriot from the US

The Polish Defense Ministry threatened the US that it would refuse to buy Patriot air defense systems if, along with the US systems, it does not provide Poland with production technologies as part of the deal. The Ministry of Defense of the Republic notified the Pentagon of this in a letter, according to the portal. Defense News with reference to the text of the document.

The letter was sent to the US Department of Defense Office of Military Cooperation 15 July. It states that the United States must first transfer to Poland the elements of the integrated control system technology and the PAC-3 radar system, as well as launchers. Later, the conditions for the transfer of classified information, which will allow the production of SkyCeptor missiles and gallium nitride based radars to be transferred to Poland, should be agreed upon, RIA reports News.

Media: Poland threatened to abandon the purchase of Patriot from the US

After the content of the message began to leak into the media, the Polish ministry published on its website a statement on this issue, in which it tried to soften the wording. The message indicated that Poland "will continue negotiations in the spirit of mutual understanding." The ministry also blamed the media for disseminating the text of the letter in an attempt to spoil relations between the two states and the use of "selective passages" from inter-agency correspondence between Poland and the United States.

We remind you that in early July, the Polish Ministry of National Defense and the US Department of Defense signed an agreement on the supply of a Patriot air defense system to Warsaw. The document was signed during the visit to Poland of US President Donald Trump to Warsaw. It is expected that the systems will be transferred to Poland before 2022.

        Polish Ministry of Defense threatens US refuse to purchase air defense systems Patriot, if, together with systems, the United States does not provide Poland with production technology as part of the transaction.
        And where did the Poles see this, so that the United States, along with the sale of its products, would also provide the buyer with the technology for their production as part of the transaction ?! Haha Americans competitors! Especially the Fuhrer-like Poles!
        The Poles in their sovereign conceit were completely stunned! They have an opinion about themselves, like a dream flight above the sky!
        Such a statement of the Poles in an extreme case only leads to an attempt by Poland to abandon the pro-American militarization of its country! It’s still possible to understand somehow - but only come to your senses late! In general, this is done by the Poles, as always, through the mind, not through the head, but ....

          In-in, give the Poles the technology of the Patriots, right there the whole pack will require F-35 technology. It seems that the Poles changed their minds at the expense of the Patriots - they put impossible conditions for the states.

            If you give the Poles the technology of "Patriots", in three months China will trade them
            But what a fortune that, as a result of the Revolution, Poland separated from Russia, and as a result of the counter-revolution, ceased to be our ally!
            How much I read news from there, so much I rejoice!

            About the production of missiles for the Patriot in Poland has already been agreed.
            And the Americans agreed.
            The new requirement applies only to radars.

              The Poles then want to sell rockets and radars to other Patriot users in the world? is this all fuss? Agree, the sales potential within Poland is small ....

                No. The Poles want to produce ammunition (rockets) for the complex.
                This is a reasonable requirement. A radar, I think, to raise the level of its military industry. This is a complex AFAR, and learning how to do it is useful for Polish engineers. It will be impossible to sell anyway without the consent of Raiseon and the American Defense Ministry. Missiles, by the way, they are going to buy (and produce) the coolest ones that are - not the usual Patriot MIM-104, but Stunner - a unique "cranked" missile defense developed for the Israeli David Sling system.
                I don’t know how they are going to combine the Patriot's SLA with the Stunner from Sling.
                But why, understandably - to intercept the Iskanders. Although this has never been tested.

      They can be understood. Polish politicians should convince the Polish people that Poland has become a Great Power with Technology (it’s a shame to hear every time in a dispute with the Russians: “Poland Kennott Into Space!”). So we are waiting for a purely formal "technology transfer" on two A4 sheets with a drawing and a block diagram.

      Poland will not refuse the contract, but the technology will remain in the USA. Americans do not like to share technology, share technology with their slave, as it’s not quite ...............
