France has offered to supply its long range MBDA missiles and Scorpene Submarines to Poland.

Paris reportedly authorized the procurement of the DCNS built submarines and long-range MBDA missiles by Poland, Gazeta Wyborcza reported Tuesday. Poland has plans to buy three submarines and 24 missiles for them.

Last Month, Poland’s deputy prime minister, Tomasz Siemoniak had announced that the government aims to buy cruise missiles for three new submarines it plans to buy.

According to the Polish Defense Ministry's Military Modernization Plan for the years 2013-2022, two submarines are to be delivered to the Polish Navy by 2022 and a third by 2023.

In March, Siemoniak announced that Warsaw is in talks with Washington and Paris over the potential cruise missile deal that would be carried out as part of the Defense Ministry's Polish Claws program, designed to improve Poland's deterrence capacity.

Poland reportedly will sign the cruise missile contract in 2017.

Poland's Ministry of Defense aims to launch the submarine tender in the fourth quarter of 2015, Deputy Defense Minister Maciej Jankowski said. The goal is to acquire the subs by 2023.
