Poland has promised to create the strongest NATO ground forces in Europe

Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak assured that the republic will have the strongest ground forces among European NATO countries

Poland will have the strongest ground forces among European NATO countries, said Minister of Defense of the Republic Mariusz Blaszczak.

“The armed forces of Poland must be so numerous and strong that their very existence frightens off the aggressor. <…> And in terms of artillery and armored forces, in the final analysis, there will be no stronger country in Europe. We will have the strongest ground forces among the European NATO countries,” Blashak assured, answering the question whether the country would be able to repel the attack.


He recalled that Poland purchased American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems back in 2018. At the end of May of this year, Blaszczak announced that he had ordered six more Patriot batteries. The day before, the minister tweeted that deliveries of Patriot elements are continuing, including PAC-3 MSE missiles and IBCS fire control systems.


Warsaw also acquired the British Sky Saber air defense system, the head of the Ministry of Defense announced about its receipt in early July.
