The Hyundai Rotem joins the International Defence Industry Exhibition in Targi Kielce expo for the consecutive time and presents its products

As part of the "Wolf" new generation tank programme, the Ministry of National Defence intends to purchase equipment designed to replace the T-72M1 and PT-91 Twardy tanks owned by the Polish Armed Forces. Formal, analytical and conceptual work related to the Wilk program began in 2017.  This programme is also one of the Technical Modernization Plan priorities - the plan signed last autumn assumes the 2035 horizon. One of the alternatives under consideration is the Hyundai Rotem proposal. The project may be based upon variant industrial cooperation and wide-scope cooperation on the K2PL tank project to be produced in Poland. A large contribution of PGZ companies is a part of the scheme. The Chief of the General Staff, General Rajmund Andrzejczak, became acquainted with the K2 tank at last year's visit to the Republic of Korea.

This year, the  International Defence Industry Exhibition also hosts the company which presents a 1/7 scale model of the K2PL tank, together with a model of the K2 tank.
