Poland has formally sent a letter to the US requesting a quotation in connection with its intent of purchasing 32 stealth-capable Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) combat aircraft, Mariusz Blaszack, Defense Minister of Poland, announced today.
"Today we sent a request for quotation (LOR) to our American partners regarding the purchase of 32 F-35A aircraft along with a logistics and training package," Blaszczak tweeted.
He added that the new aircraft would replace the ageing Soviet-era planes. “It’s high time we replaced post-Soviet equipment with the most modern fighters,” he said.
Poland's request includes a logistics and training package. No value or delivery timeline has been given.
