The Ministry of Defense of Poland has decided to form two new combined arms divisions that will be deployed along the Vistula River in the central region of the country.
The Ministry of Defense of Poland announced this on Twitter.
This decision of the Polish government was influenced by the war between Russia and Ukraine. Warsaw believes that the Polish army should be able to independently defend the country from the first day of a potential war.
"I can say that we will form two additional combined arms divisions deployed along the Vistula River in central Poland. As a result, the Polish army will have 6 tactical formations with the corresponding support and war material components," said Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak.
He added that the Polish armament group and Hyundai Rotem (South Korea) had signed a memorandum on the joint design and production of tanks, as well as wheeled armored vehicles.
According to Blaszczak, the Polish army should promptly acquire Korean military equipment. He also added that his talks in South Korea concerned the purchase of Korean K2 battle tanks, their production and joint designing in Poland.
Recall that Poland is building a wall on the border of Belarus. The country plans to allocate $400 million for the "Smart Fence" with night and day vision cameras.
