Poland has signed an agreement for the supply of complexes "Patriot"

Polish Deputy Minister of Defense Sebastian Chvalek signed a package of offset agreements with Raytheon for the purchase of air defense missile systems and missiles in the framework of the Vistula program, reports TSAMTO.

Poland has signed an agreement for the supply of complexes "Patriot"

The signing of these documents is a prerequisite for the conclusion of the contract.

In September, 2016, Raytheon announced that the Polish leadership had decided to send an official request to the United States "for the delivery of the latest configuration Patriot Configuration (Patriot Configuration 3 +) with an integrated air defense / missile control system."

In November, the State Department approved a potential supply of Poland (as part of the first of two phases) of four Patriot air defense missile systems in the PAC-2017 + configuration with an integrated air defense system (IAMD IBCS), 3 SAM PAC-208 MSE (Missile Segment Enhancement), 3 test missiles PAC-11 MSE, other equipment and services with a potential value of 3 billion dollars. "

Warsaw expressed perplexity at such a high price, which exceeded the calculations of the Polish government by $ 2 billion. The parties held an additional round of talks, and in January 2018, the Minister of Defense announced that the Polish side had succeeded in reducing the price. According to unofficial information, the cost of delivery will range from 4,5 to 5,5 billion dollars.

The supply contract may be signed already this week.

        Buy S-300 from Ukraine; they will sell 60 units;

        They won’t buy it: the S-300 does not fit into the NATO air defense concept. wink Yes, and the owner clearly gave the command what and how much to buy.

      Purchase is normal. The system is about the level of S-300.
      Aircraft at altitude takes well and short-range BR - decently.

      in ten years there will be a power struggle after Putin. It would be better if Russia's neighbors were armed to the teeth because candidates for the Kremlin’s rule would want to win the souls of Russians through aggressive foreign policy. Of course, Patriot missiles are not enough to reassure Russian leaders. A much better solution would be atomic heads plus F 35. Who knows, maybe in a few years they will be in Poland. At the moment, the F 16 with JASSM ER missiles with a range of 1000 km is a relatively good deterrent. So you better not congratulate us laughing

        What we have, do not store, weeping lost.
        In ten years, the West will remember Putin as a saint. A new Russian Stalin will come and show you the size of Siberia.
        Before destroying an object, missile defense is destroyed. And missile defense is Poland. Hello !

          He was shocked at one time in Tobolsk, where local Poles (descendants of costume rebels) made repairs to the church. I don’t remember the price now, but, cool they drank American money, dollars. Now the Americans woke up, asking stolen to return?

        There will be no power struggle after Putin’s departure, the one whom Putin will call his successor will be chosen ...

        Even assuming a theoretical conflict between Russia and Poland, you can be sure that most of the Polish air forces will be destroyed at aerodromes with one massive tactical missile strike, and then from the air the VKS destroys everything related to military objects and equipment, but then land clearing of 10 tanks in the ranks in Russia and the same number in reserve, but the most important thing is that we do the tanks ourselves and finish it fast ...

        Well, if someone from NATO gets ready to help (although history shows that this is unlikely to happen), Russia will take everything to reassure everyone else, but we have more than enough forces and means for this ...

        But again, this is all in theory, in reality, not a single Russian citizen needs Poland or anything Polish at all ... You do not forget that it was thanks to the USSR that Poland received 25% of the territory of Germany, and not some outback, and an industrialized region ...

        So the safest thing for Poland is simply not to provoke Russia, $ 5 billion for 4 air defense systems and 203 missiles is certainly cool, considering that the shelf life of the missiles is limited and in fact they will have to be bought regularly, but the price tag bites ... Okay, Arabs are buying US weapons - this is their tribute to calm, but why do you need it ?! You are already in NATO, for 5 billion you could, for example, buy nuclear power from Russia at 1000 MW with the cheapest cost in the world of 1 kWh ... And soon you will need energy, you heard Germany gave permission for the construction of the Northern 2, and then there will be Northern 3, and no one will be hindered by either Russia or Germany))) ... Oh, and Russia can also extend an electric cable to Germany, there is experience with Crimea))) ...

        The whole world has been trading for a long time, but Poland is at war))) ...

    With a soul it turns back to look at these hypocritical faces. The Poles can also expect ... that, at their expense, the United States creates its mobilization resource at the borders of Russia for the next "crusade" in Russia. But do they really not understand that they are becoming a target for US interests and a potential cannonball that the Anglo-Saxons will chase ahead of themselves.
    In WWII, the Poles were very lucky that the USSR won and made Poland a victorious country, and it also increased land from Germany to Poland. This did not teach them anything. Benefactors are waiting for those who sleep and see in the tomb of all the Slavs, including the Poles. Why are they Anglo-Saxons? Only as slaves.

      But we, like the Russians, are not Slavs. The Slavs are Serbs, Croats, and to a lesser extent people from the villages of Polesye. Poles - Sarmatians, Russian - Mongols. there is only one thing that we have in common is the Vikings, who had a great influence on the creation of the Polish state and Russia.

        I look at the Poles straight trouble with history, although why be surprised, they do not remember what happened 50 years ago, and about the ancient centuries and nothing to say ...

        Russians (the word itself is an adjective designating a sign ...) is an association of 15 Slavic tribes (Vyatichi, Polyana, Drevlyane, etc.), Serbs are South-Eastern Slavs (essentially the same Russians) who lived in the lower Volga but due to constant raids by nomads and various kaganates, they were forced to move west to Europe, the Poles, like the Czechs and a number of other peoples, are Western Slavs ...

        The Mongols are generally a different race, there were no more Vikings in Russia than other foreigners, just under Catherine 2 there were a lot of Germans in the court who tried to ascribe the Norman theory of origin to Russia, and Lomonosov and Tatishchev constantly argued with the mini, but the works of these scientists until we were reached only by the editors of the same Germans, that is, distorted in favor of the Norman theory ...
