Ukraine will buy 100 Rosomak IFVs from Poland

 The Armed Forces of Ukraine want to purchase 100 pieces of Polish Rosomak IFVs (Wolverines). Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced during his visit to the Rosomak plant today that the purchase will be carried out with US and EU funds.

As a Polish portal oriented towards military issues, Defence24(dot)pl writes: Rosomak IFVs have undoubtedly become one of the flagships of the Polish Armed Forces. Introduced in 2004, when the Polish Army began its mission in Afghanistan, the vehicle was undoubtedly a technological leap for soldiers with archaic (Soviet era) BWP-1 at their disposal [...] 

The Rosomak, a vehicle based on the Patria AMV 8x8, was also the first modern combat vehicle design whose technology was transferred (licensed) to the Polish industry. The design of the Patria AMV was selected over the Swiss Piranha III and the Austrian Pandur II.

Polish Armed Forces bought over 1000 of these vehicles.
