We sold tanks, trucks, APCs, engineering vehicles, towed artillery, AA guns, radars, radios, minelying and medevec vehicles etc... Currently we have deals with Iraq, Egypt, some South American countries, Turkey and India.

I think it is sad to be proud over arms sales.

Only if you can afford its thirst, but true, it will go almost anywhere.

Fuel should not be too bad....its an Iveco diesal engine...

Certainly no worse than the fuel consumption of the Ural 375d i was going to buy in Russia....

You can download Polish Defence Yearbook 2010 for more information on Polish Army
and the development plans of our armed forces.

Why? Armies exist to defend national interests or exert them in an agressive way and they need hardware, its a good sign that polish arms industry is advanced and developed to a point where we export our juice to other countries.

I agree. Especially, if one looks at some of the countries to which they are sold. Most of them have current military conflicts or a dictatorial regime. On the other hand, it is nice when a state develops its own weapons for the purposes of defense or counter-attack.

Poles presented Ukrainians with 18 self propelled howitzers. For free. Grateful Ukrainians have ordered the next 60.
I hope you remember that aiding Ukraine with military technique is refunded by the EU - currently, the agreed fund amounts to 1.5 billion euro.

@pawian

The next 60 came out costing $700M. That's one expensive self propelled artillery you Poles made! $12M a pop! Making good money on Ukrainian war, are you?

7 million white, Slavic, mostly Christian immigrants, overwhelming majority of them being law abiding and hard-working people. Yes, a tragedy indeed. :)

Poland is fu*cked

No, it isn`t. If it was, I would be thinking of moving like you did in communist times. But I am not. :):)

7 million

Not so many.

Ukrainian war,

RuSSists started it, darling, not Poles. Remember about it and don`t confuse us with savages.

RuSSists started it

This is what these pathetic Russian apologists always ignore.
RUSSiA STARTED THIS WAR!

savages.

And that is what Russians have proven to be.
History shows us a long trail of insane Russian savagery.
What is wrong with these people?

That handing of howitzers over to Ukrainians was a good move. Now they will be tested in battle conditions and after feedback from Ukr operators, improved by the Polish producer. The same with Piorun/ Thunder MANPAD systems which have already shot down a dozen RuSSists heavy aircraft and many drones. Thunders are excellent but still can be better. :):)

What is wrong with these people?

Too much Mongol blood in them. Simple. All their contacts with the West since the times of the tsar Peter the Great who even worked in Western countries to learn about their technology, life style and general functioning haven`t been enough to civilise them. They still need 200 more years. Sad.

Ukrainians soldiers praise excellent Krab howitzers. They are fast, precise and lethal. Also, very user friendly inside - air conditioning, room etc.

excellent Krab howitzers

Some comments under the video:

I know that the Ukrainian soldiers are doing their best and they will be victorious! Thank you Poland for everything you have done to help Ukraine!

It looks like a wonderful machine everybody should have one in their garage it shoots accurately and makes coffee too! Just wonderful.

If they are so good why is Poland buying Korean howitzers?

Because Polish industry can produce only up to 100 yearly right now while we need them for yesterday.
