    two fierce enemies near the Commonwealth of Russia and Germany, but the most fierce is Slavic Russia, so the Poles will soon remember and start buying Tigers, Royal Tigers, Ferdinandas, Panthers, storm troopers, Schmeissers, Me-109, Fokkevulfs, Junkers and Heinkels. The railroad will be altered to European gauge. The Fuhrer Kwasniewski, Zlesky, Adolfovsky, Hebels will be at the head. The Führers Klitschka and Tyagnibok, Gauleiters: Yatsenyuk, Tymoshenko, Yushchenko, Kuchma, Kravchuk will join them. Lithuania, will become part of the Speech and then hold on to the independent eastern monster.

      Let them buy. Their own business. Leopard 2, especially of later versions, is a very good main battle tank, possibly even the best in the world.

    Valokordin, they have long crossed the railway track to the European size (back in the twenties of the last century, by the way, the Germans helped them in this) ... Or are you about Ukraine, in the context of recent events? ..
    And so everything is correct. The "Bundes" are reducing their armed forces and defense expenditures, so they are getting rid of "assets" with financial benefit and geopolitical benefit - Polish crews will sit on tanks and equipment, and how they (tanks) performed the function of protection from the Russians in their time will be perform ... Within the framework of NATO - "shifting tanks from pocket to pocket."
    And the Psheks, in the vast majority of their representatives, have nothing new and original in their heads. As there was a threat in the east, it remained.

    "You, Zin, run into rudeness,
    Everything, Zin, you strive to offend! "

    Who would be talking about any threats! How long ago were they, pshekov, rotted in the gas chambers? The memory is evidently short. In return, I would have put so many Iskander missiles in the Kaliningrad region, so that for every displeased word said to us there would be a rocket. And I would say that there is nothing to arm, this provokes us to retaliate. Here's a popr .. if only! Yes, for even greater effect, I would reserve a couple of "Topols" for Poland as a lesson reinforcement. soldier bully

    Leopard-2 is one of the best MBTs in the world. So buying Poland is a serious fact. Besides tanks, a lot of other equipment was bought. It can be said that the armored cavalry division is completely reequipped. Let's just say that they work specifically.
