Poland plans to replace the Mil Mi-24 ‘Hind’ attack helicopter in its inventory with modern platforms under the Kruk (Raven) program.

The MND is focused on the acquisition of two combat rotary-wing squadrons for the Ground Forces and additional helicopters for the Navy. While the platform to be purchased is not determined within the scope of the program; Poland has yet to choose its new combat helicopter under the Kruk program. The country is reported to be considering the acquisition of the US-made AH-64E Apache Guardian or AH-1Z Viper or the AW249 being developed by AgustaWestland
