Poland’s Ministry of National Defence has signed three contracts with companies from the Polish Armaments Group to acquire modern light reconnaissance vehicles, heavy infantry combat vehicles and armored personnel carriers.
The first deal, worth $290 million, involves the supply of approximately 400 light reconnaissance vehicles to the Polish Army, according to Breaking Defense. PGZ and Rosomak are scheduled to start delivery in 2024 and complete the requirements by 2030.
The second framework agreement with PGZ and Huta Stalowa Wola will see the Polish Armed Forces receiving several hundred units of heavy infantry combat vehicles starting in 2025. The deal includes a logistics and training package and a potential increase in the combat vehicles’ production and service infrastructure.
Poland will also acquire several hundred units of armored personnel carriers from PGZ and Rosomak. The combat vehicles, which will feature a remotely controlled weapons system, are set to be delivered between 2028 and 2035 and will come with logistics and training support.
The hardware procurements are part of Poland’s ongoing efforts to upgrade its military capabilities, which includes the recent purchases of Abrams tanks, Apache combat helicopters and HIMARS rocket launchers from the United States.
