Armored vehicles, rockets and artillery systems are now being purchased. But there is no one to operate the military equipment. Therefore, it was decided to recruit more people in order to double the size of the Polish army (now it has 150 thousand servicemen – ed.).
South Korea is ready to sell 980 K2 Black Panther tanks to Poland. The contract is valued at $14.5 billion. Warsaw will also buy 600 self-propelled howitzers and 50 fighter jets.
