Poland's Defence Ministry has approved the purchase of 48 Polish-made Krab self-propelled howitzers, and 36 auxiliary vehicles in a deal valued at PLN 3.8 billion (EUR 800 million).
Next year, twelve Korean FA-50 training and combat aircraft will be delivered to Poland, the country's defence minister has said.
The Polish defence minister has approved contracts for the purchase of South Korean tanks and self-propelled howitzers as Poland seeks to boost its security following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Russian T-72 and a self-propelled howitzer have gone on display in the capital’s Royal Castle Square as ‘proof that determination, courage and professionalism can defeat the Russian Army.’ The tanks are part of a broader exhibition entitled 'The Invincible Army', which will later move on to other European capitals.
Polish-made Krab howitzers have been transported to the Ukrainian front line and are ready for action, Oleksii Reznikov, the Ukrainian defence minister, has said.
Poland will sell arms to Ukraine in one of the country's biggest defence export contracts of the last 30 years, the prime minister announced on Tuesday.
