U.S. Deploys A-10 Warthogs To Poland As NATO Bulks Up
The 354th EFS (Expeditionary Fighter Squadron) has deployed to Poland this week.
The A-10 jets will be stationed at a base near the center of the country and are there to participate in a joint exercise with the Polish Air Force, according to an official statement. However, it’s been hard for many to not see an ulterior motive in the move. With Russia and Poland increasingly at odds, Poland has been bulking its defenses.
This is not the first time Warthogs have been sent to Poland but oddly, this deployment has gotten significantly less attention.
The jets hail from the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona.
354th EFS (Expeditionary Fighter Squadron) has deployed again to Poland.
This time the A-10s maintain their presence at the Polish 32nd Air Base located in Lask, in the central part of the country.
The aim of their presence, according to the statements made by the base press officer that emerged in a variety of media, is to participate in a joint exercise with the Polish Air Force, within the scope of the Air Force Theater Security Package.
