Industry bids are due next month to supply more than 20,000 mortar bombs for the Romanian Army.

The Romanian MoD is seeking industry proposals by 10 June to provide 82mm and 120mm mortar bombs.

It plans to issue a framework agreement for a single contractor to fulfil an initial four-year contract worth an estimated RON43.63 million ($10.68 million), split into lots worth RON18.92 million for up to 12,960 rounds of 82mm ammunition and RON24.71 million for a maximum of 8,824 120mm bombs.

An optional RON18.05 million follow-on contract could see the MoD order up to 6,560 82mm and 3,024 120mm bombs.

The Romanian Army currently operates M 1977 (82mm) and M 1982 (120mm) mortars. It is also buying 120mm mortar variants of the  Piranha V 8x8 wheeled armoured personnel carrier.
