Lockheed Martin’s PAC-3 MSE Set to Boost Polish Defense Industrial Base

Poland’s Ministry of Defence and Lockheed Martin have finalized an offset agreement supporting Phase II of the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 Missile Segment Enhancement program for the country’s Wisla medium-range air defense system.

In a statement released on Friday, Lockheed Martin said the agreement opens eight projects that will provide the Polish defense industrial base with jobs for engineers and technical training and assistance in new technology areas.

The company identified the offset companies as the PGZ defense group and optoelectronics company PCO, both based in Warsaw; military aviation companies WZL-1 based in Deblin and WZL-2 in Bydgoszcz; and ammunition supplier Mesko of Skarzysko-Kamienna.

According to Robert Orzylowski, Lockheed Martin’s director for Poland, Central and East Europe, the company’s Polish partnerships not only offer the necessary security assets that the country’s armed forces need but also provide economic prosperity to its citizens.

Lockheed Martin delivered Poland’s first PAC-3 MSE missiles and related support equipment to Poland in March, TVP World reported, quoting officials from the U.S. company.

The agreement for the PAC-3 MSE supply was formalized in 2018.
