– ZSSW-30 is one of the most modern systems in its class in the world, which, thanks to today’s agreement, will soon start serving our army. Once again, we prove that we have nothing to be ashamed of, because we develop and deliver the highest quality solutions that arouse recognition and interest among our allies – said Sebastian Chwałek, President of the Management Board of PGZ S.A.
– The ZSSW-30 serial supply contract is a milestone in one of the most ambitious research and development projects carried out at Huta Stalowa Wola. Today’s contract sums up several years of intensive work at HSW together with our partners. The tower, which, thanks to the agreement signed today, will first be used by the wheeled transporters of the Polish army, will in the near future be the main armament of another modern solution that has come out of the hands of our engineers – the New Floating Infantry Fighting Vehicle “Borsuk”. We are proud and at the same time honored that HSW products will constitute one of the pillars of the Polish Armed Forces in the coming decades – said Bartłomiej Zając, President of the Management Board of HSW S.A.
ZSSW-30, a modern tower system based on an innovative national fire control system operating with the hunter-killer function. Its introduction into equipment means a leap increase in the ability of the Polish Armed Forces to effectively destroy enemy mechanized units.
