Polish Air Power


Fixed-Wing | Rotary-Wing Aircraft

Polish air power, led by the Polish Air Force (PAF), is a branch of service in flux, moving to modernize with an active war raging at its back door in Ukraine. There are remnants of the Cold War period marked by several notable Soviet-era pieces including MiG-29 fighters and Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters. Modernization is being had by the introduction of Western types such as the F-35 strike platform, the AH-64 attack helo, and the AW149 multi-mission helo. Polish air power includes a dedicated aviation branch as well as army and naval aviation arms.
