As part of the repair work, in addition to reproducing the full life of the tank, it is possible to equip it with new elements that will increase its comfort and combat capabilities. We remind you that Poland is actively working to renew its fleet of armored vehicles. In particular, the United States is currently deciding to speed up the supply of Abrams tanks to Poland.

It is also possible to deliver South Korean K2 Black Panther tanks to Poland at the negotiation stage. Poland continues negotiations with Germany for the transfer of state-of-the-art German Leopard 2A7 tanks. Germany, for its part, “thinks it can do it.”
