Poland has signed a contract to purchase 72 HOMAR-K missile launchers, a Polish version of South Korea’s Chunmoo, produced by Hanwha Aerospace Europe.

According to reports, the contract is valued at six billion Polish zloty ($1.5 billion).

“During the visit of the Polish delegation to Korea, an executive contract was signed for the delivery of 72 HOMAR-K launcher modules and several thousand. guided missiles. The acquired technologies will allow the use of 122 mm rocket ammunition produced in Polish industry,” Deputy Minister of National Defense of Poland Paweł Bejda confirmed on social media platform X.

Hanwha Aerospace said on April 24, during a visit to the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) training ground in Anheung by a Polish government delegation, a CTM-290 missile from 'Homar-K', the Polish version of Chunmoo, was launched, demonstrating the interoperability of the two countries' systems.

The deal with Hanwha Aerospace concludes a framework agreement signed last year under the previous Law and Justice government.
