JANOW, Poland (AP) — Poland has sealed $3 billion deals with South Korea for the purchase of 48 Korean FA-50 fighter planes as the central European country takes urgent steps to increase its deterrence and defense capabilities amid Russia’s war on neighboring Ukraine. The airplane deals follow contracts signed last month for the purchase of ] $5.8 billion worth of South Korean tanks and howitzers. Poland’s president and Korean officials attended the signing ceremony Friday at a military airport in central Poland. The first 12 planes are to be delivered next year. Warsaw says this is one of Poland’s biggest and most important defense deals in recent years.
