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.
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).
