Poland and the UK have cooperated in the development of the “small Narew” system, Blaszczak said, as the “short-range anti-aircraft and anti-missile launchers are based on the British technology.”


The system consists of Polish radars and trucks and British missiles and launchers.


The two ministers also signed a deal on the development of another Polish short-range air defence system, Pilica, which will be equipped with British CAMM missiles.

“The two systems, together with Patriots, will constitute a very strong defence of skies over Poland and will provide a very effective response when it comes to such threats as cruise missiles,” Blaszczak said.
