WARSAW — Germany's Rheinmetall has teamed up with the state-run Polish Armaments Group (PGZ) to develop a new armored vehicle for Poland's military, with Poland's planned military vehicle tender in mind.
"Signing this contract with [Rheinmetall] makes us an equal partner of a globally leading defense … enterprise. Propelled by the success of the Rosomak armored transport vehicle, we launched this ambitious project, which will result in a new wheeled armored vehicle," said Wojciech Dabrowski, the chief executive of the Polish group.
PGZ's OBRUM Gliwice research unit will participate in the research and development works on behalf of the Polish group. Under the plan, the vehicle is to be also offered in foreign military tenders.
