By Defence Industry Europe

The Polish Armament Agency has signed a framework agreement with Huta Stalowa Wola, a subsidiary of the PGZ defence group. This agreement outlines the future acquisition of 152 advanced 155mm Krab self-propelled howitzers.

 

The framework agreement, while not a direct procurement deal, sets the stage for forthcoming executive contracts. It encompasses the delivery of 152 Krab artillery systems along with associated command vehicles, staff command vehicles, ammunition carriers, and workshops for weapons and electronics maintenance. Additionally, the deal includes comprehensive training and logistics packages.

Under the individual executive contracts, the Polish Armed Forces plan to acquire a new generation of self-propelled howitzers. These state-of-the-art systems will integrate modern technologies currently under design and implementation for the latest generation artillery systems. Notably, these technologies include full automatic loading capabilities and reflect the operational experiences of Poland and Ukraine with Krab howitzers.

 

 

In the subsequent phase, the Polish defence industry aims to contract additional artillery fire modules. According to the manufacturer’s declarations, which will be assessed and verified upon the commencement of deliveries, this agreement marks the beginning of a multi-stage process. This process will not only cover the procurement of more Krab howitzers but also focus on the next-generation howitzers, representing a significant enhancement of Poland’s artillery capabilities.
