The contract for the supply of the Armed Forces of Poland additional MBT "Leopard-2" may be signed in November

In November of this year, a final decision will be taken on the purchase of an additional MBT Leopard-116 MBT in Germany, said the Minister of National Defense of Poland, Tomash Semonyak.


The RP Armed Forces command intends to acquire 116 Leopard-2 MBT from the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany, incl. 105 units - in version 2A5 and 9 cars - in modification 2A4, which will allow to fully equip tank brigade. Together with the tanks, the Polish side expects to receive other equipment and systems for equipping the tank connection, similar to the contract from 2002, including the BBM M-113 in the version of the control vehicle and ambulance; ARV; bridge layers based on the Leopard-1 OBT chassis; trucks and light off-road vehicles.

According to Janes Defense Weekly, the total cost of MBT and other special equipment is estimated at 200 million euros (275 million dollars).

Currently 116 units. of 128 MBT "Leopard-2А4", received in 2002 from the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Germany, are in service with the 25 of the armored cavalry brigade (Sventoshuv) of the Army of Poland. Another 12 MBT is used to train personnel.

A new batch of tanks from the Armed Forces of Germany should go into service with two battalions of the 34-th armored cavalry brigade (Zagan) from the 11-th armored cavalry division, equipped with the Polish version of the T-72 - RT-91 "Tvardy".

According to the information of T. Semonyak, at present negotiations are being held with the German side on the purchase of the MBT, which may be completed soon. 22-23 October the meeting of the head of the Polish Defense Ministry with the Minister of Defense of Germany Thomas de Mezieres was held. The results of the negotiations allow us to predict that the contract for the supply of tanks will be signed in November.

In addition to acquiring the next batch of MBT Leopard-2A4 / 2A5, the MNO RP also intends to begin upgrading the currently operating Leopard-2A4 currently operating in the OBT RP. Despite the fact that T.Smoniak did not name the specific date for the start of the program, the decision to conduct it has already been made.

According to Altair, in November of this year, an agreement must also be signed with Elch-Komponenty (Jelcz-Komponenty) to purchase 866 highly mobile medium-duty trucks that will replace the Star-266 vehicles currently in service. »(Star 266) with wheel formula 6х6. New trucks will be equipped with MTU engines, which will be supplied by the center of military engines (Poznan).

        believes this twice the colonel and the pseudo-graduate of the Frunze Higher Military Academy?

        even if what he says is true, because Korotchenko is telling this truth, the price of this truth is already underestimated at times.

      It is unclear why Poland is arming itself; did Hitler capture Poland in how many days or hours (more correctly)? At least 20 tanks, at least 1000 tanks will surrender their country without a fight, the attacking side will be offered shelter, overnight, food and their women.

            Poland at that time was crushed to pieces by two strongest states in Europe, the same weak Norway lasted 69 days, and Denmark surrendered almost immediately.

            Can you give an example when the Poles surrendered the country without a fight?

      Against whom are they gathering an army in the middle of Europe? The Germans chtoli arm psheks to recapture Kenik? So this will be a nuclear war, with Belarus the same thing. They probably want to catch the partition of Ukraine. There are no other options.

      Dogs. What about Vasilyeva and Serdyukov? Will they plant?

    They buy "junk" and spend a lot of money ... As Winnie-the-Pooh used to say: "It's burning, it's not easy ..." and such a lot of money ... In general, there are no words, only thoughts remained.

        CAPTURE? Yes, they leave them far behind, which of the neighboring countries still have such powerful armed forces? And most importantly, why are such powerful aircraft in the center of Europe?

          I will answer in Odessa. Question to question. And what is so powerful about them? Aviation, artillery, mechanized units, tank brigades are located below or on the same level with the eastern neighbors. In air defense, they lag behind. Another thing is that they are massively changing it all to newer models, and neighbors from the East are marking time. Well, it’s our fault that there is no progress.

    By the way, no one heard from Rogozin that Armata ("the latest military equipment") will be shown in 2015, at the May 9 parade? For some reason I thought that this would happen on May 9 in 2014, and before that I thought that in September 2013.

      I didn’t hear, but I just read it

      Rogozin: For the first time, 9 will be shown on May 2015 of the year.

      “The main“ Russian March ”will be held on 9 of May 2015 of the year on Red Square, where we will show our new military equipment for the first time, ”the vice premier in charge of the military-industrial complex wrote in his microblog on Twitter.
      Recall that in September, Rogozin said that the Victory Parade in 2015 for the first time would demonstrate to the general public the promising Russian heavy tracked platform “Armata”. “We will definitely show it on May 9 for the 70 anniversary of the Victory. We want to show only modern equipment at the parade, ”Rogozin said then.
      The unified heavy platform for the Armata cipher (GBTU index is an 198 object) is a promising Russian fourth-generation heavy tracked platform developed by Uralvagonzavod with 2009 – 2010's.

        I mean, they used to say that they will show at the 2014 parade. Maybe of course I'm wrong.

      Judging by the fact that, instead of landing on a stake, Serdyukov was removed from office Onishchenko, then soon. But I hope that no matter how much the rope does not curl, it will all the same meddle in a whip ...

    Poland resisted for a month, capitulated in early October 1939. If not for the invasion of the Soviet Union, it could have lasted longer.

      What is the invasion of the USSR? Poland did not even declare war on him, which means there was no invasion, they returned their own. But when Stalin gave Vilno to the Lithuanians (then still independent), taken from the Poles, then hysteria started at the official Poles in London. By the way, does anyone know that besides Germany, Slovakia also “attacked” Poland in September 1939? And she also returned only her own, they didn’t take anything Polish.

    . If not for the invasion of the Soviet Union, it could have lasted longer.

    So, just in case, let me remind you that the invasion of Soviet troops began after the centrally controlled resistance to the Germans ceased and the Polish government itself fled to London. So Stalin played his game from a legal and practical point of view perfectly. There is no one to declare the focal resistance, the Polish army virtually ceased to exist as a whole, as a combat unit and the Germans also met beyond the line of demarcation of the pact, and in the territory allotted as a zone of influence of the USSR. What can you actually read in the memoirs of Krivoshein, he held a joint parade with the Germans when they left, passing territory under his control.

    “Leopard-2 began to be used in 1979, then modifications went, Poland buys not the latest modifications, everything is correct, the old must be disposed of.
    In 2010, the Germans showed a new modification of their main tank Leopard 2-Leopard 2A7 The peculiarity of this tank is that. That he is positioned as a tank adapted for operations in the city. Modernization affected almost everything: the hull of the tank, engine, transmission, centering of masses, weapons, fire control and crew life support systems.

    Psheks with a chair are soft panove ... they didn’t want to make twards from a Russian tank .... But it’s more profitable for the Poles to sell Prussians scrap metal than to dispose of them.
