December 16 South Korean Samsung Techwin signed a contract with the Polish company Huta Stalowa Wola to supply the 120 chassis 155-mm / 52 X9 Thunder self-propelled howitzers worth about 320 million dollars, a blog says Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.


Poland will build Krab-based ACS on the basis of the South Korean KHNUMX


Based on chassis data with engine compartment compartments with German diesel power units MTU-881 KA 500 with HP 1000 power. Huta Stalowa Wola plans to manufacture 155-mm / 52 Krab self-propelled howitzers for the Polish armed forces and armored hulls.

Under the terms of the contract, Samsung Techwin is to supply the 24 Poland with the complete K9 ACS chassis in 2017. Another 96 chassis will be delivered in 2018-2022's.

Huta Stalowa Wola is going to install the 155-mm British self-propelled howitzer AS90 towers manufactured under license, which will be manufactured by the German group Rheinmetall, on them.

The Krab ACS was originally developed on the basis of the UPG (Uniwersalna Platforma Gąsienicowa) armored chassis, developed by Huta Stalowa Wola. In September 2012, the Polish troops received the first batch of 8 SAU, however, during the operation revealed many problems, so it was decided to abandon the use of armored hull and chassis HSW.

"All the vicissitudes of this stories clearly demonstrate a very low level of the modern Polish defense industry, for which even the manufacture of a small number of relatively simple running gears for self-propelled guns presents serious difficulties. With the purchase of the South Korean K9 complete chassis, the same Krab ACS is finally turned into a “designer” of imported components, ”the center's blog says.

          Most likely, not Poles, but Poles! They are not so much to climb under the bullets themselves, but if they are chased, like the army against the people, they will not go anywhere - they will fight against the Russian Federation! However, ahead of the Poles, the "chasers" are determined to destroy Ukrainian troops against Russia. bully

    Well, what's the use of these tanks? Events in the Donbass clearly show how these cars turn into a pile of rusty metal!

    and why do the Poles need so many self-propelled guns, do they need to be serviced, train crews, pay them a lot of money for work?
    The Poles are full of ambitions .... and the cat wept, so we don’t take it into our heads.

        This will be the top ST. And since each nation has its own counter to cut down a branch of "winged" hussars instead of LT - with TTX T7 combat car fellow

        It looks like the Poles are going to fight, although for them the United States will put any weapon if they go to Ukraine, they just need a global mess in the center of the EU, then don’t even go to the grandmother .......

    Everyone wants to be the strongest, but not everyone is given it, and the Poles are still raving with memories of great Poland, from sea to sea and from the Urals to Berlin.

    and why do Poles need so many self-propelled guns


    You, brothers, do not forget that the pshek had the courage to declare not long ago that they would reach Kaliningrad in 2 days ... In short, jokes with jokes (about apples), and the psheki are prepared, and apparently seriously ...

    Somehow everything in the article was mixed up.

    The tower. Rheinmetall does not produce it, it only produces a barrel with a swinging part. The tower itself was developed by BAE using a German swinging unit for the British (ACS AS-90) and is produced under license not by the Germans, but by the Poles themselves.

    Based on: Initially, they were going to rivet under the license of the case from the Turkish self-propelled gun T-155 Firtina, then they tried to create their own universal chassis, but they couldn’t see it. We returned to the first option with some changes.

    In the entire installation of Polish - only paint. Even with the crew questions - maybe an English-speaking hto ????
    This is power !!! Someone out there stuttered about the Kaliningrad region? Over the past 2 centuries, the Psheks have fully shown themselves to be tearing apart dead carcasses. No more.

    In principle, everything is correct. People did not eat a cactus - "our tanks are the best in the world, because they are ours", but they took not a bad, relatively inexpensive chassis, an excellent engine and the best Western weapon. It will turn out cheaper than the Germans, but better than the Koreans. They still normally sell these self-propelled guns to everyone for about fifteen years.

      Sorry, but you are wrong in some points.

      First, "there is a cactus" they continue. Because they need a universal tracked chassis.

      Secondly, better than Koreans with their level of automation, it’s unlikely that the tower will be quite old.

      Third, no one will allow them to sell licensed equipment. Neither BAE, nor Samsung, nor Turkish MKEK

    Of course, for 120 pieces, it makes no sense to develop and
    produce your chassis.
    More economical to buy.
    A Korean howitzer is good ...

    Good advertising, life-affirming. Only if in reality everything was spinning so fast, charging, rising, shooting, then not the minke whales would have claimed the whole world, but the South Koreans. And I’ll add that the box is convenient - even a frontal plate for the simplest RPG - plywood!
