The Polish Armaments Agency has awarded a contract to Rosomak for the delivery of 11 additional Rosomak WRT technical reconnaissance vehicles.

Valued at more than $30.55m (zl144m), the contract involves the supply of technical reconnaissance versions of wheeled armoured personnel carriers (APCs) for the Polish Army.

The vehicles are expected to be delivered between 2024 and 2025.

With the provision of a crew, which includes a commander, driver, two mechanics, and a paramedic, Rosomak WRT will support the operations of motorised infantry subunits using the APCs.

The vehicles enable troops to perform multiple tasks, including diagnostics, evacuation, and repair of damaged vehicles, and other activities related to observation, rescue, and technical reconnaissance operations.

Armed with the ZSMU weapon module’s automated systems and a 7.62mm machine gun, Rosomak WRT is capable of self-defence.

The vehicle features a remote-controlled boom, with a 1.3t lifting capacity, diagnostic, service, evacuation and rescue equipment, onboard power generator, welding units, and a set for instant electrical and mechanical repairs.

The WRT is also equipped with cameras for daytime missions.

The vehicle’s tactical and technical parameters are in line with other variants of KTO Rosomak and offer high mobility, protection, and swimming abilities.

As many as 33 Rosomak WRT vehicles, which were delivered between 2016 and 2018, are in service with the Polish Armed Forces.

The deliveries, worth $49.55m (zl233.5m), were part of a contract finalised between the Polish State Treasury – Armament Inspectorate and Rosomak in 2014.   

Last month, Rosomak announced that the licence period to produce and sell new Rosomak vehicles has been extended until 31 December 2028.
