Hyundai Rotem Develops Tank for Poland

Hyundai Rotem Develops Tank for Poland 11 September, 2020

The Wilk (Wolf) K2PL main battle tank produced by the Republic of Korea will make an offer to replace soviet-era tanks in the Polish inventory.

Hyundai Rotem unveiled the K2PL tank at the MSPO 2020 defence industry fair in Poland. "The official project tender is expected to be announced this year and we will be involved in the process," Korean officials said in a statement.

If the K2PL, the Variant of the K2 Black Panther tank designed for Poland, wins the project, the Hyundai Rotem will have its first major battle tank export.

The Korea-based firm aims to partner with the Polish government for more than 800 K2PL main battle tanks to replace Soviet-designed T-72 and PT-91 tanks.

Some of the technologies used in K2 Black Panther are also used in the Altay main combat tank developed by Turkey.
