"Strengthen protection on the eastern flank": Polish Defense Minister on the purchase of UAV Bayraktar TB2

32

The contract with Turkey provides for the delivery in 2022-2024 of 4 sets of Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, a total of 24 vehicles, mobile monitoring stations, spare parts, SAR [synthetic aperture] radars, simulators, training and logistics services. They are planned to be placed at the 12th airbase drones in Miroslavets, which is located not far west of the Kaliningrad region.

A battle-proven, highly effective and reliable technique will be delivered to Poland [...] Deterrence capabilities, both reconnaissance and strike, will be strengthened

- said the Minister of Defense of Poland Marish Blaschak.



According to him, the Polish defense industry is developing its own, but at the moment it specializes in the supply of small UAVs. At the same time, TB2-class drones are needed "here and now."

The minister also responded to the comment of the correspondent of the Defense24 publication that this type of UAV has successfully proven itself in combat, but where there was no echeloned air defense:

Critical opinions are not supported by facts. Medium-range UAVs of this class will be one of the key elements of our defense and deterrent on the eastern flank of NATO. Thanks to them, we will significantly increase the amount of information provided to the military command, including for targeting other types weapons.

      And he will stop Iskander, especially with the wrong combat unit? There is nowhere to put the money? It will be cheaper to repent before Russia. And so the Turks are great, they advertised so well with their online videos. It's a pity only human lives because of one stubborn Armenian.

              I also have no idea how to deal with the Bayraktor, which was destroyed by Iskander's missile before takeoff. Some nonsense)

            Well covered, so what?
            Bayraktar flies like it did.
            But if Bayraktar covers Iskander, he will not go anywhere, he will not cover anyone.

              The most important thing is always to quickly remove, the military leadership of the country, the army, the division, the battalion, the company, the rear. It flies once, no longer weaves anywhere. The army probably served, it does not seem that they were mowed down in the USSR.

                Why would he need a second time?
                Once I flew in, looked at where our leadership of the army, division, battalion, company, home front was. The "Khimars" and "Jassmas" flew in after them, and whoever remained, finished off themselves.
                That's it, the war is over.
                Or do you also agree with the Poles that Russia is an aggressor country, and that our Iskander will fly first?

                  They can be the first! How our intelligence will work Before the coming period, diplomats will first work. We are not Armenia, even a hundred biktars will not make the weather for the Poles. Read our defense doctrine carefully, you will learn a lot of interesting things for yourself. And Voronezh turns out to be in Ukraine in the Sumy region I hope you are not a fan of striking a blow at Russian Voronezh.

          And what can our Iskander be against their Bayraktar?

          Yes, everything is very simple - he can very quickly fly to the same 12 base in Miroslavets, which is located not far from the Kaliningrad region. In one fell swoop, resetting this entire structure for flying "tractors". We are not Armenians, we will not roll cotton wool.

        Well, here are not Turks, but Selzhuk. Just like in space, look at how private traders illuminate.


        And if not private traders.


        At the same time, the number of views.

        In addition to Seljuk in Libya, Syria, for example, Anki worked from a state corporation, which in all respects is much better than TV2 (and for the price too). However, there was practically no video from them. wink ... Only polished videos in the style of UAC / USC and other state-owned companies.


        Also, Akinchi - about which from each iron is like a new generation UAV, which makes even the murikans, but about Akshugur, no one, nothing really strains. For it is made by the Turkish version of the KLA. At the same time, perhaps he cannot carry Somov yet, but the Turkish versions of small-caliber gliding bombs may well be 6 pieces each. Well, the working cheap consumable horse MAM-L of those generally up to 16.

      protection and deterrence on NATO's eastern flank
      As if this "containment", and even backed by terry Russophobia, did not turn into another collapse for Poland. But the "proud" Poles do not think about this, because behind their back is the United States, which is putting "stretch marks" on the eastern flank. Poland is competing with Ukraine in verbal diarrhea about "containing" Russia and protecting Europe from Russian "aggression." But verbal diarrhea is one thing, and the strengthening of the NATO grouping on our borders is another.
      Battle-tested, highly effective and reliable equipment will be delivered to Poland
      This is what a well-placed ad from a real-world battlefield does. Some have already fully believed that Bayraktar is the only key to winning the war.
