All is well as long as EU subsidies comprise some 2.8% of Poland GDP , we can only imagine when they start slashing development aid with Brexit , many of these projects will come to a halt.

In some way funny but it's seems that Abrams are seriously consider for polish army...

 

11 Armoured Cav. Div. HQ told to brigades that in December will be finall decision about take ca.240 M1 Abrams. I'sholud be sceptic but source is rather good.

Abrams should be taken by two brigades: 10Armoured Cav Brig and 34 Armoured Cav Bde. Still Im doubt but knowing this goverment - it's possible...

Poland mimicing the mighty Saudi army in creating total logistical nightmare in the army?

 

PS I know it's blasphemy to say that for a guy from a county with only one tank batallion...

Hello,

 

I am new to this forum. I am interested in your comment as I had not heard this.

 

Would these be new builds? I know the U.S. had offered 400 early M-1Abrams with 105MM to Greece, who turned them down. I wondered if Poland would look at them for upgrades in Poland with diesel engines, 120MM guns, Polish optics, etc.

 

Wouldn't make a lot of sense but ....

The production of M1 tanks is complete; the last vehicles built were knockdown kits for the Egyptian army to assemble locally. Any potential Abrams deal to Poland would involve upgraded vehicles currently in storage.
