In addition, in the contract, the U.S. will deliver 26 Hercules Combat repair and evacuation vehicles, 276 M2 machine guns and 500 M240C machine guns.

"The agreement concerns the purchase of 250 Abrams tanks and those accompanying the vehicle's technical support, including bridges that will be used in combating the groups in which these tanks will operate. The contract also includes training and package logistics. As part of the deal, we will also buy large quantities of ammunition that will significantly strengthen our armed forces," Blaszczak said after signing the agreement before U.S. Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski.

"Abrams tanks will enter service with all 18th Mechanical Division. The task of this tank, and the consequence of the fact that the Polish government is developing the Polish Army is to prevent potential aggressors. We are all aware of what is happening outside the eastern border."

Previously, Poland sent 100 Soviet T-72 tanks to Ukraine, making it easier to buy a number of Abrams tanks from the US.

Not only Poland, Turkey is also interested in buying U.S. F-16 fighter jets, however, after being excluded from the F-35 fighter jet program, it is likely that Turkey will have to bury its intention to acquire U.S. F-16 fighter jets.
