Janes learnt more details about the framework agreement the Polish Armaments Agency (AA) and Lockheed Martin announced on 11 September, which they had signed for the procurement of M142 High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) missile launcher components for Poland’s Homar-A Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) at DSEI 2023 held in London from 12 to 15 September.

Under the agreement, signed after it was approved by Polish Minister of National Defence Mariusz BΕ‚aszczak, 486 Homar-A vehicles will be assembled in Poland, with deliveries starting no later than 2026. In addition, tens of thousands of rockets will be produced.

A Lockheed Martin representative told Janes at DSEI on 13 September that the framework agreement is divided into two executive contracts, the first to be signed during the fourth quarter of 2023 and the second in mid-2024, with activity lasting 12 years. Launch loader modules produced in the United States will be integrated into Jelcz 6Γ—6 trucks in Poland under the first executive contract and the modules will be produced along with the rest of the Homar-As in Poland under the second contract.
