Poland buying $414mn of US rocket artillery to ‘guarantee its security’

波兰购买4.14亿美元美国火箭炮以“保障其安全”



US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s calls to “strengthen resistance” against Russia has resonated with Poland’s leadership, as the country signed a $414-million deal to purchase an American weapons system.

美国国务卿(Mike Pompeo)呼吁“加强对俄罗斯的抵抗”,这一呼吁与波兰领导层产生了共鸣。波兰签署了一项价值4.14亿美元的协议,购买美国的一个武器系统。

A product of Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems, the M142 HIMARS is capable of launching both rocket artillery and tactical ballistic missiles with an estimated operational range of 480km. Along with the US Army and Marine Corps, HIMARS is presently operated by the UAE, Jordan and Singapore. In 2017, the US reportedly deployed the systems in southern Syria to protect its base in Al Tanf.

M142“海马斯”自行火箭炮是洛克希德·马丁公司和BAE系统公司的产品,能够发射火箭弹和战术弹道导弹,预计作战射程480公里。“海马斯”目前由阿联酋、约旦、新加坡及美国陆军、海军陆战队一同运营。据报道,2017年,美国在叙利亚南部部署了该系统,以保护其在Al Tanf的基地。



Moscow has repeatedly criticized the US deployment of troops and components of its missile-defense shield on Polish territory. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the Polish proposal to host a US base “a sovereign decision,” but warned that “the consequences for the general atmosphere” in Europe would be “obvious.”

莫斯科一再批评美国在波兰领土上部署军队和导弹防御系统的部件。克里姆林宫发言人德米特里·佩斯科夫(Dmitry Peskov)称,波兰提议设立军事基地是“一项主权决定”,但他警告称,这将“对欧洲的总体氛围造成明显后果”。
