“Polish Defence Holding’s experience as an in-country prime contractor will be instrumental in developing solutions for this new family of armoured fighting vehicles that will meet the military’s requirements and facilitate production in Poland,” said Erwin Bieber, president of BAE Systems’ Land & Armaments sector.

State-owned Polish national defence champion Polish Defence Holding consists of 40 companies, including 20 manufacturing defence sector companies specialising in munitions and rockets, radars, command and control systems, armour and vehicles.

“Teaming with BAE Systems Hägglunds shows that Bumar is an attractive business partner for the world industry leaders. It also means that the Universal Tracked Platform will benefit from their armoured tracked vehicle technology represented by millions of engineering design hours and zlotys already committed to development over the past 20 years,” said Krzysztof Krystowski, Bumar chief executive officer.

“This will ensure that our joint solution will meet the demanding technical and time challenges of this major programme and will see our team delivering critical operational capability to the Polish Land Forces”.

The multi-billion zloty programme is scheduled for completion by 2022, with the first production vehicles anticipated for delivery to the Polish Army in 2018.

BAE Systems Hägglunds is the Swedish tracked vehicles unit of BAE Systems Land & Armaments. Its key products are the CV90, the BsS10 all-terrain vehicle, and hybrid drive technology.
