The largest armament contract in the history of Poland for the purchase of Patriots has been signed

Defensenews.com: After years of laboring over details of a complex air and missile defense procurement deal, Poland signed a letter of offer and acceptance on March 28 with the U.S. government to buy Raytheon’s medium-range Patriot system currently in use by the U.S. Army.

According to a source with knowledge of the deal, Poland will buy — for what it’s calling its Wisla program — two Patriot Configuration 3+ batteries, the latest version of the system. There are two fire units per battery, so Raytheon will deliver four fire units total.

Niezalezna.pl: The Patriot system will allow us to join the elite of countries that have modern weapons that protect not only the army, but also the civilian population from air attack. This system is the best in the world. In addition, Poland is buying a version that will allow us to purchase the most modern equipment in the future, which will only enter the US in two years' time - says Michał Jach (PiS), chairman of the parliamentary National Defense Committee in an interview with the portal Niezależna.
