Slovakia is looking to purchase 30 KTO Rosomak 8×8 armored fighting vehicles from the Polish firm Rosomak SA. That reported bydefesaglobal.wordpress.com.
Rosomak SA is owned by the local state-controlled defence group PGZ. Negotiations are being held between the ministries of defence of both nations.
The KTO Rosomak wheeled armored vehicle is a local modification of AMV (Armored Modular Vehicle) design of Finish firm Patria Land Systems.
Hundreds of KTO Rosomak vehicles are currently in service within the Polish Land Forces. The vehicles aimed for Slovakia will likely receive weapon turrets designed in Slovakia.
The XC-360P Rosomak (wolverine) armored personnel carrier is a Polish license-produced version of the Finnish Patria AMV. This APC is locally built in Poland, however the most important components come from Finland. The Polish Wojskowe Zaklady Mechaniczne company has the rights to produce and marketing the vehicle to both Polish MoD and foreign customers until 2023. This company also has the rights to service and repair these vehicles until 2052.
