A tank consortium with the Polish Armament Group and Hyundai Rotem Company



On 31 March 2023, an agreement was signed to form a consortium of the Polish Armament Group, including the Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne S.A., and South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem Company, to offer the K2PL tanks and associated equipment, to the Polish Army. The signing took place in the presence of Mariusz Błaszczak, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence at the Land Forces Training Centre in Bemowo Piskie.

The agreement represents an important stage in the cooperation between the Polish Armament Group, the Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne S.A. and the HRC, and is a continuation of previous arrangements. The consortium is the basis for further discussions and the involvement of the remaining companies of the Polish Armament capital group in the production of the K2PL, as noted by Sebastian Chwałek, President of the Polish Armament Group.

In addition to the tanks, the cooperation concerns the development of new accompanying platforms. Based on the potential of research and development centres, specialised engineering and construction staff, the Polish Armament Group is ready to develop specialised versions of accompanying vehicles for the K-2PL tanks. Both tanks and the accompanying tracked vehicles will be produced at the Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne S.A.. One of the most important areas of Polish Korean cooperation is support for the operation of new equipment acquired by the Polish Armed Forces. The Polish Armament Group, together with the Wojskowe Zakłady Motoryzacyjne S.A., is the main national partner of the Polish army in the maintenance, servicing, repair, and modernisation of virtually every type of armament and military equipment.
