      Jesus, at the rate Poland is splashing the cash for military equipment, you have to start wondering how they are going to pay for all of it together, not to mention pity the poor logs section with the different MBTs fleets they will have in service.

      • Quick Maths, €35m a pop
        We paid €48.4m for 4 in 2004.

            Possibly something to do with the packages that will come with them: 1) combat support, 2) S&R and 3) EW equipped suites?
