Despite the fact that LIG Nex1 is unknown to the Polish defence industry, it is quite likely that MSPO 2017 will be just the first step in further cooperation. LIG Nex1’s offer is very wide and the company has significant experience. At the same time Poland is seeking a new industrial partner and a transfer of advanced technologies. Fields of potential cooperation between Poland and LIG Nex1 include precision ammunition for Polish land units and helicopters, as well as C4I and ISR solutions. Cooperation in avionics systems is less likely since the Polish aviation industry is very modest.

A defence cooperation between Poland and South Korea might look too exotic – yet one must remember that Hanwha Techwin (formerly Samsung Techwin) is already a supplier of the K9’s chassis, which is used by Polish industry to build the KRAB 155mm self-propelled howitzers. (Photo: Robert Czulda)
