Poland asks U.S. for more missiles and C-130 planes to ward off Russia
Poland has requested a stockpile of American-made weaponry, including the venerable C-130 transport and Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak has requested five C-130H Hercules transports in addition to the FGM-148 Javelin, sending two letters of request to the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency.
Poland hopes to acquire around 60 launchers, which would assist the nation in efforts to hold off any potential border attacks by the Russians and their ally, Belarus.
According to Defense News, the Polish Air Force currently operates five C-130E aircraft, which are starting to show their age.
