    BN-LE039_POLAND_J_20151109130916.jpg


    Poland’s minister of defense says the country should increase its army to 150,000 soldiers, almost double its current size, Polish weekly military magazine Polska Zbrojna reported on Monday.

    Speaking about his assessment of the armed forces since stepping into the office late last year, Antoni Macierewicz said there needs to be a move to strengthen Poland’s military. According to Macierewicz,Polish parliament allows for a military force of 100,000 but in reality the country’s ground forces number less than 80,000.

    I like to see the mixed soviet and western equipment. It gives an extra an edge of badassness.

    Kryl 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer



    At MSPO 2014, International Defense Industry Exhibition in Poland, the Polish Defense Company HSW (Huta Stalowa Wola) has unveiled for the first time to the public its new 6x6 155mm self-propelled howitzer called Kryl based on a 6x6 truck chassis Jelcz. The first prototype of truck chassis for the Kryl artillery howitzer is currently undergoing test and field trials in Poland. In the framework of the modernization of its armed forces, Poland has showed interest for new wheeled self-propelled howitzer, as the Kryl. The design of the new artillery system will be based on the Krab 155mm tracked self-propelled howitzer and the WR-40 Langusta MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) to reduce production and operating costs. According some representatives of Jelcz Company, the first prototype of the Kryl will be ready for 2015 and could enter in service with the Polish Army in 2017. The Kryl prototype showed at MSPO features a gun and subframe of ATMOS 2000 gun system built in Israel by Elbit Systems. However, the serial production Kryl systems will be entirely manufactured in Poland.

    The Poles have a strong defense industry, they are moving towards integrating their Soviet Cold War knowledge with Modern Western technology. As they move forward they should ensure to keep their industrial base strong and not go for off the shelf deals. Everything should be at least licensed or local production for them.
