The US Department of State has decided to approve the planned sale to Poland of 32 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft, the cost of which is estimated at $6.5 billion (PLN 25.6 billion). According to the Americans, the proposed sale of the F-35 will provide Poland with some defensive ability to stop aggression in the region and ensure interoperability with US forces.
According to May press analyses, one F-35 costs $90 million, so it was estimated back then that 32 aircraft would cost $2.5 billion. According to Polityka weekly, Belgium bought 32 F-35 aircraft for just over $4 billion, i.e. $2.5 billion less than the price offered to Poland.

F35 is a product of the American company Lockheed Martin. It is a fifth-generation single-seat, single-engine multi-tasking fighter, built to meet the requirements of all types of US Armed Forces.
