Poland intends to purchase early warning aircraft from Sweden

By Defence Industry Europe

 Polish Minister of Defence, Mariusz Blaszczak, announced on social media that Poland is engaged in negotiations with Sweden regarding the acquisition of early warning aircraft for the Polish Air Force.

The Polish Minister of Defence emphasized that “detailed” negotiations are already underway in this matter. “I hope that they will succeed in short time,” the Polish Minister wrote on social media.

Currently, no details are known about the purchase. Among the possible solutions is the acquisition of new Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft from Sweden, specifically the GlobalEye with the Erieye Extended Range radar.

Another possible option is the purchase of two used S100D Argus ASC 890 aircraft from Sweden’s Flygvapnet (Swedish Air Force), equipped with an older version of the Erieye radar. The Swedes are already waiting for their successor. In 2022, two GlobalEye aircraft were ordered to replace them.
