The Polish general envied the Russian modernization of the T-72 and thought about the "Abrams"


Russia copes with the high-quality modernization of its T-72s, while Poland has been tormented by this issue for decades. This was reported to the Polish portal Kresy by General Waldemar Skrzypczak, former commander of the Polish Ground Forces.


In his opinion, what Warsaw does is not modernization, but “dusting” or “pseudo-modernization”, which is equal to stomping on the spot. At the same time, Moscow is carrying out a real deep modernization. Only until the end of 2020, 120 T-72B3M, which in recent years also are coming into service in neighboring Belarus.

This follows from the fact that the decisions that Russia applies at home are effective, among other things, on their potential Western front, that is, in Eastern Europe. The modernization of the T-72 is very deep and significantly strengthens the strengths of this tank.

- envied the general.

Skszczczak was indignant that the Polish authorities had been telling their gullible citizens about the modernization of the T-30 for 72 years.

I am a tanker. I have been familiar with these topics for 30 years. And I can say for sure that we are not able to do anything with these tanks, because we do not have the corresponding potential

- the general said responsibly.

The general is confident that since Poland is not coping with the improvement of the T-72, it needs to rely on other solutions. For example, start assembling American Abrams tanks or create a joint tank with the USA if strategic partners share technology with Poland.

He emphasized that it is difficult for Warsaw to communicate with Berlin, while the Poles look at Washington very favorably. Therefore, Poland needs to rely on the United States and acquire 450-550 tanks. At the same time, Poland needs to forget about the modernization of the T-72, since Polish industry cannot meet the expectations of its army.

Let all these policy they will send their sons to these units, which are supposed to fight on the T-72 tanks. None of them dare to do it

the general said thoughtfully.

      Psheks are generally warriors no matter what tanks and planes they are given, but the result will always be the same, and it is not in favor of the Poles !!!

    Tell me, can tanks without technology not save the father of Polish democracy?

    Poles, you are probably starting to forget a little bit that you once could produce tanks. After all, forgetting the rest, you are doing very well ...

    How can one forget what was not? About the years before 1941, these are not tanks, these are tears.
    Licensed Soviet tanks? Semi-assembly, and with the help of Soviet specialists. This is how a blind man walks with a guide. This is not a skill.
    The skill is laid not in factories, but in design bureaus. Das ist fantastish - a project of a pshek tank, made in plywood and in a single copy.
