About This File
In 2016 the Polish Air Force Su-22s reached the end of TBO and the MiG-29s were not compatible with modern air combat standards. Instead of modernizing old planes the Ministry of Defence decided to buy new multirole fighters to replace them. A competition between some companies was started. EADS offered the EF-2000, SAAB proposed the GripenNG and Lockhhed Martin offered more F-16s or new F-35As. The negotiations were finished in the middle of 2017. Lightning became the winner of the competition and the PAF decided to buy 38 aircraft with modern armament, including AIM-120C-7 and JAGM missiles. Deliveries of first aircraft began in 2018. Lightnings received a polish name 'Piorun'. They were delivered to three squadrons of the 1. Skrzydlo Lotnictwa Taktycznego (1st Tactical Air Wing):
- 1. Eskadra Lotnictwa Taktycznego (1st Tactical Air Squadron), Minsk Mazowiecki Air base (13 aircraft)
- 40. Eskadra Lotnictwa Taktycznego, Swidwin Air Base (12 aircraft)
- 41. Eskadra Lotnictwa Taktycznego, Malbork Air Base (13 aircraft)
