Poland announced on Tuesday that it intends to purchase long-range missiles from the United States worth $687 million, to enhance its defense capabilities in the face of potential Russian threats.

The deal, which is scheduled to be officially signed on Wednesday, is part of the rapid modernization process of the Polish army, against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine.

The Polish Ministry of Defense said, “The war in Ukraine demonstrated the importance of having the ability to launch missiles at targets even if they are far from the front line, and the range of the missiles that will be purchased is about 1,000 kilometers.”

The ministry added that it will receive the JASSM missiles, known as Joint Air-Surface Standoff Missiles, between 2026 and 2030.

Poland’s arsenal currently includes this type of missile, which has a range of up to 370 kilometers, and is used by its F-16 aircraft.

Warsaw boosted its defense budget to reach about four percent of GDP, the highest figure among NATO countries.

It also launched a series of purchases of military equipment worth billions of dollars, most of it from the United States and South Korea.
