In February, Polish National Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said Poland will spend nearly $50 billion over the next seven years to modernize its military. The modernisation plan envisages the purchase of new multi-purpose fifth-generation fighter jets, attack helicopters, artillery and anti-missile systems as well as submarines, the minister added.
Senior DoD officials told US Congress on Wednesday that Washington and Warsaw were drafting details for a planned US base and could reach a final agreement on the military facility within a year.
Andrzej Duda said Tuesday that Warsaw was negotiating with the United States the acquisition of Lockheed Martin’s F-35 stealth multirole fighters. According to 2017 Pentagon report, the aircraft has hundreds of deficiencies, which range from structural problems to software trouble.
