486 more rocket launchers will be given to Poland

According to a press release from the Ministry of Defence, Poland approved the framework agreement to acquire 486 M142 launcher components for the HOMAR-A system for around $10 billion.

Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak approved a framework agreement to acquire M142 HIMARS missile launcher components for the HOMAR-A system. The start of deliveries is expected by 2025.

The head of the Ministry of Defence noted that the implementation of the contract is to be carried out with an active part of the domestic defense industry. Blaszczak claimed:

“We plan to start deliveries at the end of 2025. 2026 has been indicated as a Defense year. The goal will be to adapt the systems to integrate the launchers with Polish systems. After discussions with the Polish defense industry, I can assure you that we will carry out this integration within two years. I am very grateful to Lockheed Martin, the US Congress and the US administration for their cooperation.”

According to the HOMAR-A program, Lockheed Martin, in partnership with the Polish Industry, are going to integrate key components of the HIMARS rocket launcher on a Jelcz 6×6 chassis.
