Rosomak-S AMVs for Poland

The head of the Polish Ministry of Defense (MoD), Mariusz Blaszczak, announced on Twitter that his department intends to procure 60 Rosomak-S armoured modular vehicles designed to carry SPIKE Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM). According to him the contract with the local Rosomak S.A. company, a subsidiary of the state-controlled Polish Armaments Group (PGZ, Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa), should be signed in 2020.

The Polish Ministry of Defense has announced its intention to procure a batch of 60 Rosomak-S Spike ATGM carriers. Future Rosomak-S AMVs will most probably be fitted with a marginal weapon system, like a remote weapon station, rather than a (un)manned turret / Picture: Rosomak

Rosomak-S vehicle is technically similar to the baseline Rosomak armoured modular vehicle, a local derivative of the Finnish Patria AMV. The main difference is that Rosomak-S vehicles are not equipped with any weapon systems (Rosomak in the standard configuration for the Polish Army is fitted with a 30mm Hitfist turret). Each can carry up to two Spike ATGM launchers along with missiles and operators.

Today only a marginal number of Rosomak-S vehicles are used in the Polish Army. They serve in the 12th and 17th Mechanized Brigades and provide support to artillery companies equipped with 120mm Rak self-propelled mortar systems (also on the Rosomak / AMV platform).
