By Defence Industry europe

On June 26, General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) and Polish Armaments Group (PGZ) signed an agreement to establish a competence center for servicing Abrams tanks in Poland. The center will be set up at the Military Automotive Works (WZM) in Poznań.

The Teaming Agreement was concluded during the joint WZM and GDLS Abrams Supplier Conference. The agreement is the result of discussions between PGZ S.A., WZM S.A., and the American company, GDLS.

The agreement confirms the decision to establish a competence center for Abrams tanks within the Military Automotive Works, providing the capability for comprehensive maintenance and support to meet future requirements of the Polish Armed Forces. In the future, the potential of the center may also be utilized by US military units stationed in Poland and other European countries.

 

 

In 2022, Poland signed a contract for the delivery of 250 Abrams M1A2 SEPv3 tanks, along with associated equipment, logistical support, and training for the Polish Armed Forces. According to the plans, the first Abrams M1A2 SEPv3 tanks are expected to be available by the end of 2024, with complete deliveries completed by the end of 2026.

In 2023, the Polish Ministry of National Defence entered into another contract for 116 Abrams tanks in the M1A1 version, along with associated equipment, logistical support, and training.

Thanks to the agreement between GDLS and PGZ, this equipment will be serviced at the Competence Center in Poznań. This means that Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa will possess the capabilities and expertise to support Abrams, Leopard, K2, PT-91, and T-72 tanks.
