    Airbus hates you now because they are about to lose their $3 billion contract with Poland for 50 EC-725 Caracal multi-purpose helicopters. Now Sikorsky has a chance to win because they have a local production center in Poland. Augusta Westland has a chance too.

    I don't know why Poland picked Airbus to begin with, is the caracal so good that they are more important than local defense industry capabilities?

    We have good chance to sell them T-129 Atack helicopter if they buy multi role helicopter from Augusta Westland because T-129 is product of Augusta and Turkish Aerospace Industries.

    Rheinmetall, Bumar-Labedy Sign $144M Polish Tank Modernization Deal

    WARSAW — Germany’s Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH and Poland’s state-run defense company Bumar-Labedy SA have signed a deal worth €130 million (US $144 million) to modernize the Leopard 2A4 tanks, which are operated by the Polish military, Bumar-Labedy said in a statement.

    Under the plan, Rheinmetall will build a prototype upgraded tank, dubbed the Leopard 2PL, and modernize a trial batch of about a dozen units. Following this, the German manufacturer will transfer its know-how to Bumar-Labedy, and the Gliwice-based company will upgrade the remaining tanks. In 2002, Poland acquired 128 Leopard 2A4s from the German Bundeswehr.
