Lockheed, PGZ team for Homar programme

The Polish Armament Group (PGZ) will base its negotiations for Poland's Homar programme on Lockheed Martin's High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). Lockheed Martin announced its selection by PGZ on 7 July.

The companies will partner to develop in-country defence technology modernisation via transfer of technology, in-country production/manufacturing and future modernisation.

HIMARS is designed to enable troops to engage and defeat artillery, air defence concentrations, trucks, light armour and personnel carriers. The system can deliver accurate, lethal, quick-strike munitions ranging from 15 to 300km and then move away from the area at high speed following missile launch, well before enemy forces are able to locate the launch site.
