Deployment of Quality Assurance teams and a Technical Assistance Fielding team is also included in the sale package.

Lockheed Martin has been selected as the principal contractor for the sale.

In a statement, the DSCA stated: “This proposed sale will support the foreign policy goals and national security objectives of the US by improving security of a Nato Ally that is a force for political stability and economic progress in Europe.”

The agency further stated that the delivery of new HIMARS launchers will allow Poland to enhance, modernise, and expand the Polish Armed Forces’ capabilities to counter emerging threats while allowing them to jointly operate with the US and other allied nations.
