Mariusz B³aszczak confirmed that Poland will buy combat drones from Turkey. The first set in 2022

The head of the Ministry of National Defense added that the contract with the Turkish arms industry also included a logistics and training package. As Minister Mariusz B³aszczak pointed out, the “military enterprise” will be responsible for servicing the unmanned aircraft. The contract will be concluded without tender, as part of the so-called urgent operational need.

The head of the Ministry of National Defense stressed that “Polish companies do not produce unmanned aerial vehicles of the class that is now being purchased for the Polish armed forces”. – There is simply no such weapon in the offer of the Polish arms industry.

The Bayraktar TB2 drones, which are planning to buy the Polish Ministry of Defense, are unmanned aerial vehicles proven in conflicts in Libya, Syria and in the battles for Nagorno-Karabakh. Previously, the management of the Ministry of Defense did not signal any willingness to buy specific drone models. It was only said that market research was underway as part of the program code-named “Gryf”. At the end of last year, the Armament Inspectorate only informed that the analytical phase was coming to an end and it was getting closer to announcing a tender.

We will sign the contract for the purchase of Turkish dorns next Tuesday during President Andrzej Duda’s official visit to Turkey.
