Speaking at the recent Radom Air Show Costa Panvinirosati, Leonardo Head of Marketing for Eurofighter said Poland represents a really good opportunity for future Eurofighter sales.
“Poland started the modernisation process of its air force serval years ago. With its strategically important location — on the eastern flank of NATO — Poland needs the best of the best when it comes to air capabilities.
“Of course, air superiority is one of the key elements in what is a very complex equation. For us, Eurofighter is the best response when you consider these needs. In today’s combat air market, nothing comes close in terms of air superiority.”
Leonardo is often seen as an Italian defence company but in fact has had a large presence in Poland for many years.

The company has around 3000 employees there and this level is increasing thanks to new programmes, like the AW149 helicopter that will be produced here.
Currently, Eurofighter is in service with five European and four Gulf nations. It is fully interoperable with US legacy platforms and provides modern air forces with a compelling strategic advantage in a combining multi-platform fleet.
Thanks to the long term investment in the programme by Eurofighter customers, several nations are looking at further acquisitions of the aircraft.
The partner companies in the programme, Airbus, BAE Systems, Leonardo, and the wider supply chain employs more than 100,000 skilled people across Europe.
