Over PLN 3.8 billion for the Krab cannon howitzers. Agreement with the Ministry of National Defence signed
- Krab cannon howitzers have already proved their worth in the war. They are an essential and effective weapon in defence of Ukraine when used by the Ukrainians. Our task is to make the Polish army ever stronger, and Poland ever more resilient - said the Minister of National Defence Mariusz Błaszczak. He added that the new orders show an increase in the production potential of the Polish Armaments Group and the Polish defence industry in general.
President Andrzej Duda stated that strengthening the country's defence capabilities is particularly important in the current political situation in Central and Eastern Europe. He added that he was impressed by the scale of this year's MSPO.
- I am glad that this agreement is concluded on the eve of the jubilee, 30th International Defence Industry Exhibition. This is a really great event. I hope that many trade agreements will be signed, also with Polish defence companies.
According to the agreement, Stalowa Wola Steel Works is to provide the Polish army with two Regina fire modules with 48 Krab self-propelled howitzers and 36 accompanying vehicles, including command, command-staff and ammunition vehicles, as well as a logistics and training package. The contract will be implemented in the 2025-2027 period.
The first contract for Krab howitzers was concluded in 2016 - 4 fire modules, including 96 Krab howitzers and 100 accompanying vehicles. This contract is still being implemented.
