    Poland’s President Andrzej Duda welcomed a new order for self-propelled howitzers produced in the country after it was signed off yesterday at a defence industry event in the city of Kielce.

    President Andrzej Duda said the new order for 48 AHS Krab self-propelled howitzers was a step towards developing the Polish defence industry and further modernizing the country’s armed forces.


    The contract with producer Huta Stalowa Wola for 3.8 billion zlotys ($797 million) adds to a previous order in 2016 for 96 of the same model, to be delivered by 2024.
