The Czech military now has 107 Pandur II 8x8 armoured vehicles that cost 14.4 billion crowns.

At the end of the year, the military would like to declare a tender for further 42 armoured vehicles with the Tatra chassis. The ministry expects that it would pay for the vehicles, most likely Titus or Vega, in 2019-2023.

The Czech military plans to acquire ten mobile 3D radiolocators MADR worth 3.5 billion crowns that would replace the old Soviet-made systems.

Originally, the Czech Republic planned to buy the radar systems together with Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, but the cooperation failed.

In 2014, the Czech Defence Ministry declared a tender for four airport radar systems, but it had to be cancelled in March because there was only one bidder. A new tender will be launched soon.

Tenders for servicing two Airbus A-319 aircraft from the government fleet and the Sokol helicopters and for repairs of six L-410 planes will be launched.

The Czech military also wants to buy ammunition.

The purchase of new helicopters, which has been considered, is not among the military tenders planned for this year.
