Poland is not ready to part with the T-72

43
Polish army is not yet ready for decommissioning tanks T-72. According to the portal defense24.pl, the Polish Ministry of Defense announced the launch of the analytical part of the program for the modernization of old military vehicles.


In the period from 1979 to 1991, the year in Poland was produced 682 tank T-72. Some of them were later upgraded and received the name PT-91 Twardy, but most of the machines continue to serve in the basic version.

Poland is not ready to part with the T-72


Last year, the Polish Ministry of Defense planned to write off the remaining T-72, gradually replacing them with a new combat vehicle being developed as part of the Gepard project. However, these plans were changed - in the military department indicate that the mass production of new tanks will begin no earlier than ten years later. Thus, the Polish T-72 will continue to serve and need to be upgraded.

The Polish military has not yet disclosed the details of the modernization program, since at the current stage they are busy collecting proposals from defense enterprises.

Today, the Polish Armed Forces have about 900 tanks - mostly RT-91 Twardy and T-72 vehicles. In addition, armed with mechanized units is more than 200 German tanks Leopard 2A4 and Leopard 2A5, reports "Warspot"

And then they demolish the monuments to the Soviet Soldiers, and they will exploit the tanks - two-faced forgiveness ..., I send ..., my God, what should they be called?

      Do not worry about the Poles. Poland’s GDP is $ 1.051 trillion, Russia's GDP is only 3 times greater. Poland’s military budget is $ 21 billion, Russia $ 200 billion. And given that Poland does not spend money on nuclear submarines, ICBMs and other unnecessary weapons, there will be money on tanks.

                  Poland does not need to worry about global security. She has an American nuclear umbrella. Poland has money for tanks. And to any, even to Merkava, even to Armata.

                    Yes, they paid and periodically resisted invasions, which, incidentally, allowed Europe to live quite quietly ... This is not the point - the Horde’s neck was broken anyway! Poland may have money, but it cannot spend it on armaments without the permission of the Washington Regional Committee ... What kind of "autonomy and lethargy" is there? If you mean a bare fact: money is a commodity, then I will agree with you. True, since they can’t abandon the obsolete T-72s, apparently not everything is so beautiful in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth with money ... laughing

                      This is from an alternative story. We will discuss this in a specialized article. The topic is interesting.

                      Some people are armed with even the T-62, and I have not seen them screaming about the loss of greatness. Moreover, ask Poland for their Armat and they will sell Armaty earlier than their army. And they will immediately forget that Poland is a NATO country and they won’t remember about “tomatoes” either. fellow

                        This is exactly your conclusions - this is wishful thinking - when they sell, then you’ll talk about greatness, I’ve already written - it either exists or does not exist, and it is not measured in quantity and modification of weapons, as for alternative stories I agree, the topic is interesting, but it’s rather your scam with Christ, and in any case, the Golden Horde, the largest Empire of human civilization, ordered to live long enough to control the Russian principalities!

                        It all depends on the desire of Poland for Russia gladly sold the T-90 without having put them in its troops in the required quantities and is now selling the C-400 to the NATO country, having forgotten about the Russian plane shot down by this country. Clean business and nothing personal.

      I wrote, and when I looked at the comments, it turns out everything has already been said before me. It turns out that it is so obvious that any normal person immediately catches the eye. I hope that the Poles will understand that the real uncompromising struggle against totalitarianism knows no boundaries and stops halfway.

    The Golden Horde was not the greatest empire in the history of mankind. The Mongol empire, from which it spun off, is another matter.
