“Russians are afraid of the F-16”: Poles on plans to rearm their army

Polish readers responded to an article by the Gazeta.pl portal, in which the publication, citing official authorities, spoke about plans for an accelerated militarization of the country.

In particular, it is quickly re-equipped with a new machinery a garrison in Suwalki (near the Kaliningrad region of the Russian Federation and the Belarusian border), and in dozens of cities across Poland, new military personnel are now taking the oath.

Poles' comments (all opinions belong only to the authors on the Gazeta.pl website):

If you don't want to support your army, you will support someone else's. What's wrong?

– responds to the article yabbaryt.

All of these contracts (for tanks, howitzers, combat aircraft, transports) were pushed so fiercely that only the naive would assume that there were no bribes. And anyone who is happy with arms purchases should first think about who will pay for it.

– said bogdan.hirschmann.

Ukraine has not yet received ATACAMS missiles, but only GLMRS. I suspect we won't get them either, unless something similar comes from South Korea. Another thing is that in our case, much more than the same ATACAMS with a range of 300 km, the Russians are afraid of our F-16s with JASSM-ER systems, where the range reaches up to 1000 km. So far, it doesn’t occur to anyone to give our sixteenths to the Ukrainians, because then we will get rid of the only weapon that can hit targets in the depths of Russia, because with ATACAMS we can only threaten Belarus

- said the Pole talbor73.

Armored troops are a thing of the past. Yes, there are also some needs for them, but today the missile forces and aviation are much more needed in the ratio of 50% of new revenues for missilemen, 30% for aviation and 20% for armored units

First. Who will pay for it? Next generation? And if suddenly there is not enough money, then the weapons, presumably, will be demanded back ... Second. Who will serve these thousands of armored vehicles, planes, tanks and missiles?

asks ttako questions.

I was once called to a military training camp for reservists, they wanted us to ride on old infantry fighting vehicles that had been idle for years. After the exercises for the reservists, all the BMPs disappeared somewhere. But in general, now there will be a lot of such iron, which billions from the budget will go to instead of supporting healthcare, education, etc.

    The Russians are not afraid of anything at all, and the F-16 against our Su-57 is generally bullshit.

      The Su-57, of course, surpasses the old f16 in all respects, but here it’s enough to compare how much f16 falls on one drying and the outcome will be clear

    The Poles will not have to pay, there will be no one to pay.
    Poles simply will not remain, only radioactive ash - both from Poland and from the Poles.
    This is not even discussed.

    not fighters are dangerous, but missiles. if they fly 1000 km, then how will the fighter bring down air defense?

    Russian Poles are not afraid, and the ancient American birds, all the more, will shoot down together with the Poles with great pleasure, have the Psheks become insane?
