  1. Leopard 2's will stay in service untill enough K2PL's won't be procured, after that, all Leopard 2's will be withdrawn from active service. As for Abrams, currently we lease 28 M1A2SEPv2's from US Army for training purposes, on order are 116 refurbished M1A1SA's and 250 brand new M1A2SEPv3's, in future more might be ordered. M1A1SA's are planned to be upgraded to M1A2SEPv3 standard at some point in future.
  2. Actually we ordered 180 K2's, and with Korea we are developing K2PL which we plan to procure around 820 so in total there will be 1000 K2 and K2PL tanks in Polish Army as per current MoD plans.
  3. So, there are still some T-72's used by Polish Army, not all were sent to Ukraine. Now the questions is, how many we really had? Polish MoD really like to make everything a secret.
  4. Polish tank crews with M1A2SEPv2's. Borsuk IFV during state trails.
  5. GDLS finally presents AbramsX technology demonstrator.
  6. Hyundai Rotem models of K2PL, and based on it AEV and ARV, that were sent to KIPO (Korean Intelectual Property Office).
  7. Right now work is done to start producing our new FFG's within "Miecznik" ("Swordfish") programme. SSK programme codenamed "Orka" ("Orca") is ongoing, Navy is quiet about it, but as far as I heard, something is going on.
  8. Ok, an update, because this is huge! Informations I will provide below, is from Armaments Agency spokesman Col. Krzysztof Płatek. Polish MoD plans: MBT's: - 116 M1A1SA to be upgraded to M1A2SEPv3. - 250 new built M1A2SEPv3. - 180 K2 to be upgraded to K2PL. - 820 K2PL produced in RoK and Poland. - K3PL a future MBT developed in cooperation between Poland and Republic of Korea. - T-72's, PT-91's and Leopard 2's will be completely withdrawn from service. IFV's: - 1000-1400 Borsuk IFV. - Heavy IFV based on AS21 Redback, total numbers to be procured unknown at this moment. 155mm SPH's: - 144 AHS Krab. - 48 K9A1 to be upgraded in future to K9PL. - 642 K9PL based on K9A2. - Codevelopment between Poland and Republic of Korea for next generation 155mm SPH. MLRS: - Polish MoD is interested in K239 Chunmoo to supplement procurement of M142 HIMARS and WR-40 Langusta-2.
  9. Phase 1 = ~180 K2's from Republic of Korea. Phase 2 = probably ~400 K2PL's. This is probably the plan. It is also officialy confirmed by MoD, all T-72's, PT-91's and Leopard 2's will be withdrawn from service, replaced by 366 M1A2SEPv3's (116 upgraded M1A1SA's and 250 new built M1A2SEPv3's) and 580 K2/K2PL. Also worth to mention, MoD might procure some additional M1's in future if there will be such need. In simple words. T-72's, PT-91's and Leopard 2's are going out, and we stay only with M1A2SEPv3's and K2/K2PL's.
  10. First M1A2SEPv2's for Polish Army traning center for crew delivered. Second important information, MoD said, that at some point, 116 M1A1SA's we bought, will be upgraded to M1A2SEPv3 standard. Photos are by Z Obiektywem Obok Munduru team.
  11. First M1, from batch of 28 leased by US to Poland for training of our tank crews had been seen recently in Poland. These are M1A2SEPv2's.
  12. https://www.polsatnews.pl/wiadomosc/2022-07-14/mariusz-blaszczak-w-programie-gosc-wydarzen/?ref=aside_najnowsze Minister of Defence, Vice Prime Minister Mariusz Błaszczak, just confirmed that Poland and USA agreed that US will provide Poland with additional older M1's (variant unknown yet) besides 250 M1A2SEPv3's we bought. How many of these additional M1's will be provided remain to be seen.
  13. Currently standard for M1A2SEPv2's and M1A2SEPv3's (and in future M1A2SEPv4's) is CROWS-LP, so RWS stays on tank, just in different lower profile variant.
  14. PGZ and Honeywell signed memorandum to create service and logistic centers in Poland for Honeywell products, including AGT1500 gas turbines for M1A2SEPv3's.
