    The 18th mechanized division is being formed in Poland

    As Polish media reported, in early November 2018, Polish National Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak approved the schedule for the formation of the fourth regular division of the Polish Army, which is planned to be deployed in the eastern part of the country near the borders with Belarus and Ukraine - the 18th Iron Mechanized Division (18. "Żelazna" Dywizji Zmechanizowanej).

    At present, the Polish ground forces include three divisions (the 11th armored cavalry and the 12th and 16th mechanized), consisting of a total of ten brigades, as well as six separate brigades. The fourth existing division (1st Warsaw Mechanized) was disbanded in 2011 (four divisions have remained in the Polish army since 2001). However, due to increased tensions in Europe, in 2016 the Polish Ministry of National Defense decided to deploy the fourth division in the eastern direction, and its formation has now turned into a practical plane.

    The control of the 18th mechanized division (including the 18th control battalion) was activated on September 17, 2018 (the 79th anniversary of the entry of the Red Army on the territory of Poland in 1939) in Siedlce (Masovian Voivodeship, 50 km east of Warsaw). plan, the management of the 18th division should be deployed by the end of 2018, and by September 2019 the main command structures of the division will be established. By the end of 2019, the 18th Division will include two existing brigades - the 1st Warsaw Armored Brigade named after Tadeusz Kosciuszko (1 Warszawska Brygada Pancerna im. Tadeusza Kościuszki), stationed in Vesola (Warsaw) and part of the 16th the mechanized division (the 16th division has four brigades in its structure, so the withdrawal of one of them will lead the division to the “normal” standard), as well as a separate 21st brigade of the Podhaler shooters named after brigade general Mechislav Borut-Spihovic 21 im. gen. bryg. Mieczysława Boruty-Spiechowicza), in fact - mechanization located in Rzeszow in southern Poland (Subcarpathian Voivodeship). In this structure, the 18th Mechanized Division must reach combat readiness in the first half of 2021.

    The commander of the 18th mechanized division was appointed Brigadier General Jarek Gromadzinsky, previously the deputy commander of the 12th mechanized division, and took office on 9 September.

    Also as part of the 18th division, beginning in the fall of 2019, the formation of the third new mechanized brigade should be carried out, which should reach combat readiness by mid-2022 and which is planned to be deployed in Lublin. According to several reports, for this purpose it is planned to restore the 3rd Legionary Mechanized Romuald Traugutt Mechanized Brigade, which was disbanded in 2011, which was previously located in Lublin.

    The formation of divisional units of the 18th division (including the reconnaissance regiment, artillery regiment, air defense regiment, etc.) will be carried out until 2026.

    In general, the cost of forming and equipping the 18th mechanized division is estimated by the Polish Ministry of National Defense at 27 billion zlotys ($ 7.1 billion) over ten years.

    It should be noted that the Polish 18th Infantry Division distinguished itself in the hostilities of 1919-1920 and 1939, but the division with this number did not exist in the Polish Army after 1939.
