Poland to buy Patriot missiles, Airbus helicopters

The Polish government will negotiate the purchase of Raytheon’s Patriot system for its planned missile defence shield with the American government, president Bronislaw Komorowski said following a meeting with PM Ewa Kopacz and defence minister Tomasz Siemoniak.

On Tuesday the government decided to choose the Patriot over the Aster 30, a system offered by a European consortium of MBDA and the Thales Group. It will now enter exclusive talks with the US government on the Patriot anti-missile system.
