The Polish Army has taken delivery of a second batch of eight 120 mm Rak self-propelled mortar systems and four command post vehicles (AWD).

The new Rak mortars will be operated by soldiers from 12 Mechanised Brigade's 1st Mechanised Battalion based in Szczecin. Polish crews and service personnel have already completed a basic training programme under the supervision of the system's manufacturer, Huta Stalowa Wola (HSW).

The 12 Mechanised Brigade is the second unit in the Polish Army to receive Rak mortar systems. The first was 17 Mechanised Brigade in Miedzyrzecz, which took delivery of the initial batch in June.
