Česká zbrojovka, a subsidiary of Colt CZ Group SE, signed an Agreement of Intent with “Ukrainian Defence Industry” (formerly Ukroboronprom) for the assembly of the CZ BREN 2 rifles in Ukraine. The project's goal is to equip the Ukrainian armed forces with a proven, high-quality standard NATO firearm, enhancing their operational capabilities.

 

“We are honored to support Ukraine’s efforts to adopt NATO standard equipment and increase the capability of its defence industry. This first step towards a full-scale transfer of technology project for the CZ BREN 2 rifle is a direct consequence of its successful deployment on the battlefield in Ukraine by the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” underlined Jan Zajíc, CEO of Česká zbrojovka.

“The technology transfer from NATO member states marks a pivotal moment for our company, driven by successful international cooperation and ongoing defence reforms. This initiative is a crucial step towards establishing an Arsenal of the Free World within Ukraine,” commented Herman Smetanin, CEO of the Ukrainian Defence Industry, on the importance of this agreement.
