    Grand Rehearsal Concludes! Sneak Peek of What “The Great Parade” Will Look Like in Poland

    In the early hours on Warsaw’s Wisłostrada, the grand rehearsal for “The Great Parade” took place. “Let’s gather here on August 15th to express our gratitude to the soldiers for their service, especially on the Polish-Belarusian border,” invited Minister of Defense Mariusz Błaszczak during today’s press conference.

    “At 2 PM on August 15th, the Military Polish Holiday, a parade will commence right here on Wisłostrada. I warmly invite all residents of Warsaw, Mazovia, as well as guests from all over Poland. Let’s come together on August 15th to thank our soldiers for their service, particularly those on the Polish-Belarusian border,”

    Minister of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak stated during a press conference in Warsaw.

    He added that the upcoming parade will be different from previous ones, as it will showcase the modernization process of the Polish Armed Forces. “So, the most advanced equipment – both acquired from the United States, such as Abrams tanks, and acquired from Korea – like K2 tanks and K9 self-propelled howitzers. There will be over 200 units of combat equipment and more than 90 aircraft,” the minister added.

    Błaszczak also mentioned that the parade will feature equipment manufactured in Polish arms factories. “Above all, I’m thinking of the Borsuk infantry fighting vehicles, making their debut during the August 15th parade, as well as the Baobab mine-laying vehicles, a whole range of vehicles produced by the Polish arms industry. These include the wheeled armored carriers Rosomak, self-propelled mortars Rak, and the Krab self-propelled howitzers. We’re proud of this equipment because it’s reliable,” enumerated the Defense Minister.

    The grand rehearsal offered a tantalizing glimpse into what “The Great Parade” will offer to spectators. It promises to be an event that not only honors the dedication of soldiers but also showcases the advancements and achievements of the Polish Armed Forces. As August 15th approaches, anticipation grows for an unforgettable celebration of Poland’s military prowess and the commitment of its servicemen and women.
