Poland is wary of placing US-purchased F-35s close to the Russian border

38

Poland will not deploy the American fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II fighters purchased from the United States at the base in the city of Malbork and Minsk-Mazovetskiy, fears are raised by the proximity of these airfields to the border of Russia and its ally Belarus. Reported by Defense24.


According to the newspaper, the Polish Ministry of Defense is afraid to deploy F-35 fighters in Malbork, located 80 km from the Kaliningrad region, and in Minsk-Mazovetsky, located near Belarus. The main danger, in the opinion of the Polish military, is that at such a close range, a potential enemy will be able to study "the radar and infrared characteristics of fifth-generation American fighters." In this regard, the F-35 is proposed to be deployed in Svidvin in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship bordering Germany.

Ten years ago, two squadrons of Su-21 fighters were deployed at the 22st tactical airbase of the Polish Air Force in Svidwin, and therefore the infrastructure necessary to accommodate F-35 fighters has been preserved at this facility. However, before the redeployment of new fighters to this airfield, modernization work will be carried out on it.

According to available information, the Polish Ministry of Defense has already announced a tender for construction work at the airbase in Svidwin. However, the Polish publication does not rule out that after the modernization, the F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters located at the Kshesiny airbase in Poznan will be deployed at this airfield, and another place will be found for the F-35.

    And that's true. Soprut. They will be loaded into a truck with apples. And the Belarusian customs officers do not check the apples, since after crossing the border the apples become Belarusian and are not subject to inspection.
    So the fears of the Poles are justified.

    I think ours have already received important information on the F-35 in other regions of the world. And they will get here)

      ours have already received important information

      The point is probably not so much in the infe. Playing a ball near a neighbor's fence is more likely that it can fall over the fence. Refusals, navigation errors. But you never know. And the birches of Smolensk are feisty. Well Japan - flopped, and ends in the water. "Eh, a little kingdom, nowhere to roam"

      Tellingly, the main "insider" is Hel Haavir. In this case, infa gets completely free - it happens that the "unbeatable happens". fellow yes True, they have to share not of their own free will, often without even knowing what is happening, but this is for the best, because "a lot of knowledge - a lot of sorrow." laughing

    The Poles decided not to place the purchased aircraft near the Russian borders because sloppy Russians could inadvertently break such expensive toys.

      They respect the mattress with which they feed and cover themselves.
      However, they do not believe them.
      Well psheki.
      Well invisible!

    The Poles survived to hide their planes on their territory from us. Only then do not forget where they hid.

    Psheki are funny, it seems that geography is not taught at school.
    The entire territory of Poland is under fire.
    Svidvin is even closer than Svinoustce from Baltiysk.

    Poland is afraid to host its F35s at its base, so they will be stationed at an American base in Germany. As a last resort, at an American base in America.

    And who told the Poles that someone might need these "litaki"? Most likely they can be commandeered by the "great Ukrainians", so that later they can be pushed to someone else on the cheap !!!

    All these troubles with attempts to hide the unfortunate F-35 from the Russian radar are reminiscent of the saying "like a cat with bacon", I think ours should think about who else to put the S-400 in order to simply close the sky for this aircraft.
    But in general, this is how they usually hide equipment that did not meet the expectations of the customer and the manufacturer, remember the gold-embroidered sling of Porthos's sword?
    It looks like the same case

    Russia is not the only one to be feared. There is an even more dangerous adversary, the Romanian Gypsies. If they really want to, they will take away not only planes like horses.

    Poles are afraid in vain, twice in vain, firstly F35 is invisible, and secondly, it is also an expensive non-flyer. Let them put them as monuments and exhibits, and protect them.

    in the opinion of the Polish military, is that at such a close range, a probable enemy will be able to study "the radar and infrared characteristics of American fifth-generation fighters."

    It would be more correct to say that their owners prohibit the Pshek from placing the F-35s bought from them close to the Russian border. Shiver scum, We are near! We are Russians, and God is with us!

    It is less than 300 km from Svidvin in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship to the border of the Kaliningrad region.
    So 80 km, that 300 km are little things, not distances. lol

    NATO is a super project. Commercial, of course. Not only are their pieces of iron being driven to Europe at exorbitant prices, they will also sniff gas.

    s, cho. They will keep the Europapuans for the people .. laughing
