Polish air defense missile defense system "Vistula"While NATO is strengthening measures to protect Europe from missile threats, many countries, both within the framework of national programs and in an allied format, are seeking to strengthen their air defense and missile defense capabilities, writes Defense News 26 in November.


Poland plans to upgrade the air defense and missile defense systems by 2022 by purchasing short-range and medium-range anti-aircraft missiles. The program, called Wisla (“Vistula”), is estimated at 16,4 billion zlotys (8,4 billion US dollars), which is the largest national armaments program.

The visit of 4-6 in November to Poland by the US Secretary of State John Kerry was associated with the program of military modernization of Poland and procurement of weapons, said Polish Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak. The SM-3 Block IIA interceptor missiles are planned to be deployed at the Polish Air Force Base at Redzikovo.

Kerry and Simonyak visited the 32 Tactical Air Force Base in скеaskie (central part of Poland). During his visit, Kerry said that the United States does not intend to abandon its plans for missile defense in Europe, the Polish facility in 2018 will be put into operation. For its part, Poland has confirmed its commitment to deploying a US missile defense base in the country.

14 foreign and Polish companies have expressed interest in participating in the Polish Wisla air defense / missile defense program, including the American Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Boeing; French Thales, Italian Selex, Turkish Aselsan, Spanish Indra and Sener, Israeli SIBAT, also Polish defense consortium Polish Defense Holding.

MBDA has offered Poland to purchase MEADS (photo) or Aster-30 medium-range air defense / missile defense system. The US has withdrawn from the MEADS program, so Poland can become the third European partner in this system. weapons along with Italy and Germany. The share of the Polish industry in the development of MEADS can range from 10 to 15%, with a total value of 4 billion dollars (proposed to participate in the development of software complex).

Romania is another key country for the deployment of components of the NATO missile defense system. At the end of October, the construction of the Aegis Ashore missile defense facility in Deveselu (south of the country) was completed. The base will begin to operate in 2015 year, the cost of the project is 134 million.

        This is of course yes, but in this case, the reason is most likely different. They are a "great power" trying to match. And some of them are glad, maybe they initiated it.
        US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Poland November 4-6 was related to Poland’s military modernization program and arms purchases

      No, they’re climbing over to thoroughly and gently lick the anus of the United States. This is the main function of modern Poland.

        Poles, yes, famous lovers of England and the United States.
        Why England is clear, during the Second World War, they hid the Polish government, and helped with weapons.
        Although the Poles have worked this good in full only with the production of "Enigma", not to mention the parts that did not work "FAU", etc. etc.
        And now, Poland and England have complementary industries in the economy (the production of prefabricated housing, even the British drive to Poland to repair cars, it’s cheaper), not to mention the number of Poles working in England.
        And such a love for the states, not many Poles live there, and on the basis of hatred of Russia, they also became friends, spiritually, so to speak.
        We all remember the story, and we know why the Poles hate us.
        That’s how the vile people are arranged — usually everything bad is forgotten, I remember the good (scientifically proven fact) - everyone will say that it was better than now. And when the engaged media connect to the memory of the people, they talk about all the crap, oh they don’t remember that our people were dying Poland from the Nazis, and that they shot Polish officers (not mentioning that after the revolution the Poles almost reached Moscow) –– these officers have a fresh memory, as yesterday everything happened .

      And what is the dirty trick then? They do not buy ICBMs, but SAMs. Compare MEADS with Aegis Ashore the same as the C-350 with the S-400 ...

          The MEADS SAM system does not include SM-3 missiles. The main missile PAC-3 MSE, it can shoot down b / h tactical ballistic missiles, such as Iskander, but no more. She has a range of not more than 150km.

      It is understandable. The Americans brought them up, made them a vector of direction, and that's it. I think in Tibet only with its own characteristics.

      "Poles go out of their way to spoil Russia"
      Yes, the Poles in this case are just not in business. I think this is an answer to the question "against whom will the European missile defense system be created now if the question with Iran is removed?" The answer is that now there will be no American European missile defense, but there will be national systems funded by the USA. And if something happens, "what are we? And we are nothing! They (Poles, Czechs, etc.) create themselves."

      Well, if you make two simple comparisons - the Territory and the Defense Budget.
      About the first, and so it is clear, and the second - Poland 9,5 Lard Baku, Russia 13 Lard. There is nothing special to rejoice about.

      ShturmKGB.Hello! Our ancestors have already taken the "Vistula" in due time. And now I have no doubt the "Vistula" will not save. Only we all on the site and in the country do not need it. Our territory is enough. And if anyone has a nervous tic our fault with you.

    It seems that Poland is the only country in Europe and the EU that is arming at an accelerated pace. News about the acquisition or signing of arms contracts comes almost every week. I wonder who are going to fight with?

          In general, in the modern world, sushi is already lacking. Yes, and the climate. Better Cyprus region as part of Russia.

    MEADS ssca cool ... If the Poles buy it, they will not regret it. It’s just not clear, they write that the USA withdrew from the development of MEADS, but how could they exit when the entire SAM is created around the PAC-3 MSE SAM?

    The Americans, through their allies, find markets for their military products. And the Eastern European partners are trying their best ... putting up a missile defense shield against Russia. And they do not understand, gentlemen and other seniors and gentlemen, that these will be potential targets for our "Iskander"

    I don’t know why the missile defense system in Europe is now, because the main enemy against whom the missile defense system is targeted is Iran has already abandoned the production of nuclear weapons. Initially, the missile defense system was planned not against Iran. All points are over And put. And Poland is ready to surrender to the United States, for the loot. They are not in able to pay for the damage caused by the Nazis to our embassy ($ 11000). The state does not even have that kind of money.

    They have an inferiority complex, now the Americans are their masters, and then the pans will say that the Chinese guys do nothing, they need to be friends with them, etc. They will never have their own foreign policy, no matter how many missiles they buy.

    Poles, by the way, in Ukraine, silent glanders are working hard. In Western Ukraine, a lot of joint projects from the restoration of Polish graves in Lviv to economic ones are financed without stint. In Kiev, there is the only radio station that broadcasts in the format of news, dialogs, etc. more or less objective)), as Polish radio broadcasts there in the evenings, about the EU there is a natural current in a good way, like Harasho, etc., and also what Poles are great friends of Ukrainians ... Yesterday, in the next issue, I repeatedly warned about Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth II ..., about upright seats ..., megalomania doesn’t let the poor la_ham go to bed ...

    You know, if we take your words as a real factor, then the same Poles have the right to "dream" of some kind of Ryazan or Kaliningrad sea. (?) And, navnrnoe, rightly so, that they modernize the army and air defense, remembering your enthusiasm about the "Iskander" in the Kaliningrad region. I'm wrong? (just please try to think symmetrically ")

    Hmmm ... I read the news here ... And I looked through its prism at everything that I so often see on this site. It became sweet.

    Russian Railways President Vladimir Yakunin agreed with the graduation of the Forbes magazine rating, which considers that the head of the state monopoly took ninth place among the highest paid top-managers of Russia.


    On Thursday, Forbes published a list of the most expensive top managers of the Russian Federation in 2013, headed by Igor Sechin, President of Rosneft, who received $ 50 million in a year of work. The second place was taken by the head of VTB, Andrey Kosti ($ 35 million), and the third - by the chairman of the board of "Gazprom" Alexey Miller ($ 25 million). Yakunin finished ninth with a combined $ 15 million compensation.

    “In general, I am extremely skeptical about all these ratings. This rating causes me a certain interest, because it confirms one simple truth: among all companies with state participation, the remuneration of the President of Russian Railways is the smallest. Androsov (Chairman of the Board of Directors of Russian Railways - ed. ) said. Here they (Forbes - ed.) confirmed. On what basis - I do not know. But from the point of view of gradation, they are absolutely right, "- said the head of Russian Railways on Friday.

    The total revenue of the 25 most expensive company executives in Russia amounted to $ 325 million, an increase of one third compared to last year. If in 2012 the rating included 11 representatives of state-owned companies, and their total earnings amounted to $ 147 million, then in 2013 there were 13, with a total remuneration of 226 million.
