​WARSAW, Poland, Dec. 22 (UPI) — Poland and the United States have finalized a U.S. Foreign Military Sales deal for Poland’s acquisition of missiles for use on F-16 aircraft.
Poland’s Ministry of Defense said the country’s Secretary of State in the Ministry of National Defense, Bartosz Kownacki, personally met officials at the Pentagon on Tuesday to pick up a host of agreements for the furnishing and supplying the missiles.
The contract covers air-to-air AIM–9X Sidewinder precision missiles, medium-range air-to-air AIM–120 AMRAAM active radar-homing missiles and the latest variant of long-range AGM–158B, or JASSM ER, standoff cruise missiles.
