Last November, the State Department approved the acquisition of the 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER (extended range) missiles for Poland. It is the first State outside the U.S. to acquire the JASSM-ER.
JASSM-ER has an operational range of 620 miles, giving Poland first strike capability. Equipped with a penetrating warhead, It can stealthily take out key infrastructure deep inside Russia.
Poland's military Is undergoing a long-term modernization program to be implemented within the next 5 years. Expansion up to 50% of mikitary personnel, a new 50,000 man paramilitary organization, new air defense systems, ballistic missiles, new fighter trainer aircraft, combat and transport helicopters, submarines, self-propelled howitzers, unmanned aerial vehicles with combat capabilities are all a part of Poland's military modernization plans.
