Leonardo We are also looking at the next order for Black Hawk helicopters, which are manufactured in Poland Mielec is the second helicopter manufacturer to have a factory in Poland. We have an order for another Polish WR-40 Langusta missile launcher, but we also understand that, in order to get a high degree of saturation of troops with this type of equipment, we must base orders on our foreign partners,” he added. The Polish minister also said that Poland wants to buy additional American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems.” We also approached our American partner with a request for proposals for new Patriot batteries. In addition, we are negotiating with our South Korean partners on the possible acquisition of rocket launchers on the K239 Chunmoo wheeled chassis,” he said. “I could list for a long time. In principle, the needs are so great that in any field we are interested in technology. The range is very wide,” he concluded.
