SEOUL, Dec. 4 (Korea Bizwire) — Hanwha Aerospace Co., a South Korean defense company, said Monday it has signed a 3.45 trillion-won (US$2.62 billion) contract with the Polish government to provide 152 K9 self-propelled howitzers to the European country by 2027.
The deal forged with Warsaw’s Armament Agency is part of a larger framework agreement reached between Hanwha and Poland in July of 2022 to supply 672 K9 howitzers and 288 Chunmoo multiple rocket launchers.
The first contract was signed in August of last year.
Under the second deal, Hanhwa has pledged to offer comprehensive integrated logistics support for the maintenance of K9 units and collaborate on the local production of maintenance parts for the military vehicles.
A Hanwha official said the latest contract has helped the company forge a “deep trust” with Poland and “provide the foundation for a continued and ongoing cooperative relationship.”
