We were the entity that signed a contract concerning the delivery of four squadron modules, known as “Regina”, including 96 Krab howitzers. It is a historic contract, unprecedented in the Polish industry, since the agreement value is around PLN 4.5 billion. We are also a Party that performed the work concerning the company-level fire modules, also known as Rak

Both artillery solutions are being delivered to the customer - the Polish Armed Forces. Nonetheless, HSW is also fighting to sign potential export contracts. Moreover, the facility is being expanded, new staff - educated, and manufacturing processes - modernized. Not only would the facility be able to manufacture Krab or Rak platforms, as it is also going to be capable of creating the latest Borsuk IFVs.

 

Borsuk, the new amphibious IFV, a full size model in its final shape, or dimensions, so to speak, has also been presented today (...) It is a project financed and implemented by the National Centre for Research and Development We are almost sure that it is going to be a successful product, and in the future we hope it to be one of the primary items manufactured at HSW (...) Everything that we are doing, we do it for our Army and for the purpose of getting sales opportunities outside Poland.

Kryl self-propelled howitzer was also being presented during the MSPO exhibition.
