No chance, as the total number that we bought was 48. Your numbers don’t add up.
Furthermore, there are some rumours that just 12-16 of them are operational due to the lack of spare parts.

Don't blame on me @Musashi, but these rumors are a bit exaggerated. This is classified information, but according to the statement from February, Lt. Col. Marek Pawlak: “The standard for the Polish Air Force is to maintain the highest possible operational readiness of the aircraft in operation. The ability of the aircraft to perform the task and their efficiency primarily result from the adopted operating systems, which include, inter alia, obligatory periodic maintenance for F -16 aircraft from several days to even several weeks depending on the degree of complexity and detected malfunctions. For this reason, it is even theoretically impossible to achieve by each of the NATO member states to maintain the combat aircraft capability index at the level of 100% per annum. According to the available information, the combat aircraft capability index to carry out missions of NATO allied countries fluctuates between 40 and 70%. In this context, the degree of operational readiness of the Polish F-16s is in the upper range of the above range. "
It follows that at that moment there were about 20-25 planes flying.
As for the rest, I agree with You - it's not enough.

In November 13, 2020 the 4th Regional Logistics Base (4th RBLog.) from Wrocław has announced that it has signed a contract with the Concept company from Bielsko-Biała for the delivery of another batch of light, four-wheeled all-terrain vehicles for the Polish Army.

The Polaris vehicles are versions of civilian quads specially modified by Concept. A few years ago, the American company built in Opole its first production plant outside the US and Mexico, where vehicles are made from scratch. Polaris Polska produces light all-terrain vehicles for users in Europe, Asia (except India) and Africa.

The order includes 49 vehicles, deliveries of which must be made by November 30, 2020.
 
The KDA 35 mm cannons, which have already been put into operation (successfully) by the Polish Armed Forces, is the naval variant, which in the form of the OSU-35 ship weapon system was installed on the ORP "Kaszub" corvette 4 years ago. The system consists of: an unmanned turret with a minimal interference in its structure with a stabilized 35 mm gun and a reserve of two 100 rounds each, a fire control system with the main operator position, a backup control station and a day / night optoelectronic head. equipped with the IFF system.

The experience gained in the course of work and tests was used to develop a new version of the system, designated OSU-35K, adapted to be installed on two currently built mine destroyers: project 258 (Kormoran II) ORP Albatros and ORP Mewa. Work on the installation of the system on the first of the ships has started and will last about 2 years. Preparations are also underway for the development of ORP Mewa. The OSU-35K turret is much lighter, it is also characterized by much greater ergonomics. The optoelectronic head and the fire control system together with the operator's station were also modified and modernized.
