Poland buys Patriot PRO systems that will protect Lithuania

16
Michal Yah, head of the parliamentary committee on the defense of the Polish parliament, who was in Vilnius on a visit, said that the Patriot missile defense system, which Poland plans to buy, would also protect Lithuanian airspace.


Otherwise, I can not imagine. (...) Lithuania faces the same danger as Poland
- Polish politician said in an interview with BNS.

Poland buys Patriot PRO systems that will protect Lithuania


The Patriot system must be such that it can be integrated with neighboring countries.
- he added.

Warsaw claims to have entered into a final agreement with the United States on the acquisition of anti-missile defense complexes in July, which could cost about 7 billion euros. At the moment, Poland has no long-range missile defense systems, and there are none in the Baltic countries, where the defense of the airspace is one of the weakest links.

The Patriot system was temporarily deployed in Lithuania for the first time this summer during an exercise involving the Americans.

      Great knock down. As they say "checked by battle." More than 100 interceptions only from the Saudis.

        With a missile consumption of at least 3 per target? It’s good that the Saudis have a lot of money.

    Lithuania faces the same danger as Poland

    Bloody diarrhea from an excess of Russophobia? Looking at the President of Lithuania and the Minister of Defense of Poland, another does not come to mind.

        Another thing is interesting, as far as I know the Poles, how much will they require for such "protection" from the Balts? Nothing in this world is done for free, especially for sculpted friends on NATO.

            I just made parallels with Bulgarian history. After Bulgaria nearly lost their Air Force, the Poles quickly fidgeted and offered to defend the friendly Bulgarian sky for a "small" fee.

            The states in Korea are doing the same with THAAD. Trump said he would, but not for free. So, the Poles have someone to learn from.

    will also protect the airspace of Lithuania.

    At a range of 80-100 km? Well, if only in the area of ​​the proposed Suvalk corridor.
