Hanwha Delivered 24 K9PL Howitzers to Poland

Hanwha Aerospace delivered 24 K9PL Howitzers to the Polish Armed Forces at an official ceremony today.

Howitzers arrived yesterday on a cargo ship to the Port of Gdynia, where the welcoming ceremony will take place. Today, an official ceremony was held to celebrate the arrival of the K9PLs, with the participation of Polish President Andrzej Duda and Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak.

Attending the ceremony from South Korea included Minister Eom Dong-hwan of the Defense Procurement Program Administration, Yoo Dong-joon, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of National Defense, Son Jaeil, President and CEO of Hanwha Aerospace, and Lee Boo-hwan, Vice President of European Business of Hanwha Aerospace.

After the contract signed at the end of August, the K9PL was delivered within three months. Under the contract, Hanwha is expected to produce many K9PLs from 2026 in cooperation with Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ), which produces many K9PLs and Krab Self-Propelled Howitzers (KMOs) until 2026. In addition, Hanwha plans to establish an MRO center in Poland to provide logistical support to Poland and other K9 user countries in the European region.

Lee Boo-hwan, Head of Hanwha Aerospace’s European Division, said at the ceremony: “The delivery of the K9PLs is an important milestone in the development of the partnership between Hanwha Aerospace and the Polish Government. Meeting the requirements of the Polish Armed Forces is our top priority and delivering the highest quality equipment to Poland so quickly. We are proud to have produced and delivered in a fast way.”

Son Jaeil, President and CEO of Hanwha Aerospace said: ‘’There is no doubt that Hanwha Aerospace is the most reliable partner to contribute to Poland’s defense capability and the growth of its industry. Hanwha is determined to make Poland a hub for the supply of K9 systems in Europe on the basis of a stronger partnership with the Polish Government.’’
