Poland's defense ministry has shortlisted European Aster 30 and American Patriot system in its tender for mid-range air defense system.

Aster 30 is produced by a a consortium of France's Thales and European group MBDA, while Patriot SAM system is offered by Massachusetts-based Raytheon.

The ministry rejected offers from the Israeli government and MEADS consortium led by Lockheed Martin.

The system, estimated to be worth about $5 billion, is part of Poland's major military overhaul.

A decision is expected by end-year, and will have strong political connotations, as it would signal Poland's decision on which country is seen as the leading ally, Gazeta Wyborcza daily wrote.
