Poland specified the number of HIMARS and K239 Chunmoo that it plans to purchase until 2030
Details of future purchases of American (HIMARS) and Korean (Chunmoo) rocket systems have been clarified in Poland.
The number and terms were announced on Twitter by the spokesman of the Armaments Agency, Krzysztof Płatek.
According to his information, expectations regarding the number of HIMARS M142 rocket systems have changed. They are now planning to purchase more than 200 instead of the previously announced number of 500 units.
“The GMLRS is still planned due to the fact that the M142 HIMARS are also to be procured – more than 200 launchers,” Płatek wrote.
At the same time, the spokesperson of the Armaments Agency noted, the Poles aim to mount American MLRS on their Jelcz 6×6 chassis.
He also confirmed Poland’s intentions to purchase more than 300 Korean K239 Chunmoo rocket artillery systems.
The Republic of Korea agreed to the transfer of technologies for ammunition production. Poland intends to produce rockets with a range of 70 km and missiles with a range of 300 km.
In the future, K239 Chunmoo will be mounted on the Polish Jelcz 8×8 truck chassis.
Instead, the idea of integration of Polish 122-mm rockets with Korean MLRS was abandoned. They are still to be used only by national analogues of the Grad multiple rocket launcher – WR-40 Langusta.
As previously reported, on October 17, 2022, Poland plans to sign a framework agreement with Korean companies for the purchase of more than 300 K239 Chunmoo rocket artillery systems.
The Poles expect the first deliveries of HIMARS and K239 in 2023, thus it’s planned to complete rearmament in 2030.
