F-18’S FOR POLAND?
Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 99
A Polish Defense Ministry spokesman said yesterday that Warsaw is considering an offer from McDonnell Douglas to sell Poland F-18 fighters. The sweetener in the deal calls for Poland to produce 60 percent of the parts for the aircraft. Although one Polish newspaper described the offer as unofficial, Warsaw was reported to be taking it seriously. Poland’s armed forces are equipped primarily with Soviet military hardware, and Russian-made MiG 29s are among several other aircraft that Warsaw is considering. (UPI, May 21)
