Nearly 400 exhibitors to show wares at Polish defence fair

Almost 400 exhibitors from 27 countries are expected to show their wares at a major defence fair that opens in the south-central Polish city of Kielce on Tuesday.

The annual exhibition, which is scheduled for September 7 to 10, will feature military equipment displayed by exhibitors from countries including Britain, Germany, Norway, Italy and Ukraine.

The American-produced M1A2 Abrams tank will take centre stage, according to organizers.

Poland plans to buy 250 Abrams tanks from the United States as part of a multibillion deal with Washington, officials announced earlier this summer.
