Military expert Gur called Poland’s decision to buy K2 tanks from South Korea strange

American military expert Daniel Gur appreciated Poland’s decision to buy modern K2 tanks from South Korea.

Gur called the idea of ​​Warsaw strange and warned of problems due to the incompatibility of the new technology with US technology.

“The use of machines from one manufacturing country gives great advantages to both Poland and the alliance. It is extremely strange that Warsaw signed an agreement with South Korea on a massive arms deal,” he wrote.


Gur believes that now the Polish military will be forced to establish another supply chain, as well as develop methods for interacting South Korean tanks with other combat systems.


Earlier, the head of the Polish Ministry of Defense, Mariusz Blaszczak, said that Poland intends to replenish the tank and aircraft fleet of its Armed Forces, so Warsaw intends to buy 180 K2 tanks and 48 South Korean-made FA-50 fighters.

“Already this year, the first copies will arrive to us [from South Korea], in total there should be 180 tanks in the first batch,” Blaschak said.
