BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – Poland will likely be the next foreign country to purchase the U.S.-made F-35 stealth fighter, The Aviationist reported.

The NATO member, which is located west of Russia, is seeking to acquire the Lockheed Martin stealth fighter by 2024, Jacek Siminski at The Aviationist reported.

The Aviationist’s report coincides with the statement made by Polish Defense Minister, Mariusz Błaszczak, in February 2019. The Aviationist reported, “during the presentation of the plan Błaszczak suggested the procurement of 32 fifth-generation fighters is a priority,” adding “he was probably referring to acquisition of the F-35 — no other true fifth-generation aircraft is currently available on the market.”

“The F-22 is no longer manufactured and acquiring the Su-57, even though Russia recently suggested that it would be offering it to foreign customers, is simply a ridiculous scenario no one even dares to consider, especially within the current geopolitical context,” Siminski pointed out.

Should Poland acquire the F-35, it will likely be a major concern for their Russian neighbors, who have dealt with the expansion of NATO in eastern Europe.

Russia does have their own stealth fighter, the Su-57, which is set to join the foreign markets in the near future.

Several countries have already expressed interest in acquiring the Su-57, including world powers like China and India.

I fully support this act!

Poland is a poor country, buying and operating the faulty F-35’s will break their back economically.

The F-35 is the most dangerous aircraft ever created (For the air-forces that operate them that is)

I mean it’s not Germany, but it certainly isn’t a poor country anymore. Better, have fewer high tech f-35’s than more fourth gen fighters. Russia has the numbers, so Poland needs the technological edge, considering the Russian air defence systems that surround the country.

There is no tech edge with F-35, except on paper, and on paper, it will do not more than a Rafale F2 (we’re now at F3R upgrade) once the hundreds of flaws fixed (if ever). This narrative of fighters generation comes from Lockheed Martin’s marketing dept. These are the best! They could sell ice-cubes to eskimos, by the time they deliver, ice cubes would have melt and Alaska would have dilapidated all its oil revenues at it! In terms of stealth, you push a button into Rafale and you’re stealthier than F-35… And we’re about to integrate a system making… Read more »

“he was probably referring to acquisition of the F-35 — no other true fifth-generation aircraft is currently available on the market.”
=> Wrong, Rafale is even stealthier, and the F4 upgrade will bring total radar invisibility
