Krab self-propelled howitzers and command vehicles arrive with 23rd Artillery Regiment

The 23rd Artillery Regiment of the Polish Army has taken delivery of Krab 155mm self-propelled howitzers (SPHs) from Huta Stalowa Wola, to form part of a new Regina artillery squadron.

A total of eight Krabs (a polonised variant of the Hanwha Techwin K9 Thunder) arrived in late October, along with four command vehicles.

According to HSW a fully equipped Regina artillery squadron comprises 24 155mm Krab SPHs, three command staff vehicles, eight command post vehicles, six ammunition supply vehicles and one mobile armament and electronics workshop vehicle.

In 2021, the 23rd Artillery Regiment will have the third Regina squadron in the Polish Army, following the 11th Artillery Regiment and the 5th Artillery Regiment.

By 2024 the Polish Army is supposed to receive the last of 120 Krab howitzers, which will allow it to form five Regina squadrons, the first of which has been in service since the end of August.
