    The best part about that paint job is that it could be applied to the average F-16. It isn't overly flash and doesn't use too much paint.

    The Caracal was chosen as it met the most of the criterias imposed by the Poles during the tender. I don't buy the "We will buy others because it will benefit for the local industry" as Airbus Helicopters plans to open an assembly line in Lodz to produce the Caracal helicopters,not only for the Polish army's needs but also for exports. Airbus Helicopters also opened in the same city an research center.
    -
    France warned that if Poland doesn't buy the Caracal,there will be big repercussions,as we seek this deal for "compensation" for the Mistrals,as the Poles were the one pushing hard to halt the delivery of these ships. Sorry to say this,but Poland is known to backstab its European partners,and the F-16 deal was a good exemple. (I heard that the deal was paid with the European money!!) Poland is one of the least contributing country to Europe but are happy to get our money.
    I sincerely hope France will not send any troops to Poland as part of the "reassurance initiative" against Russia.

    U.S. Air Force Awards Lockheed Martin JASSM Contract for Additional Polish Air Force Integration
    Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM®) onto the Polish Air Force F-16C/D aircraft.

    This second contract for Poland includes support for a broad range of certification and flight activity. Integrated logistics support and program and technical oversight will conclude in 2018. Poland became JASSM’s third international customer in September 2015.

    “Our airworthiness efforts expand and refine JASSM’s employment flexibility on Polish jets, ensuring the Polish Air Force has this vital cruise missile capability,” said Bob Adams, long range strike systems international program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “JASSM’s high reliability and effectiveness allows the missile to defeat current and future threats in challenging environments.”

    This contract was awarded in December 2015. Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM is a stealthy, precision-guided cruise missile that employs an infrared seeker and enhanced digital anti-jam Global Positioning System receiver. JASSM is integrated on the U.S. Air Force’s B-1, B-2, B-52, F-16 and F-15E. Internationally, JASSM is also carried on the F/A-18A/B and the F-18C/D aircraft.

    Produced at the company’s award-winning manufacturing facility in Troy, Alabama, more than 1,800 JASSM cruise missiles have been delivered.
