One of the Concern's enterprises and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ S.A.) signed the Agreement on producing 125 mm shells for tank guns. It happened during the visit of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the Republic of Poland.
The Agreement foresees the deployment of new production lines to manufacture ammunition for 125-mm tank guns. Due to the high risk of missile attacks from the side of Russia to Ukroboronprom's enterprises, only Polish cities are being considered to host the production. However, both sides will work on the development of projectiles: Ukraine will provide its technologies and high-qualified specialists with the appropriate competencies and experience.
This is the next step towards further strengthening partnership between Ukraine and Poland in the defense sphere.
Recently Ukroboronprom has started producing 125-mm ammunition for tank guns together with another member state of the North Atlantic Alliance. Thus, Ukroboronprom will produce shells for tank guns in collaboration with two NATO member countries at once.
