Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) and the Javelin Joint Venture (JJV), a Raytheon and Lockheed Martin partnership, signed an MoU for Javelin anti-tank weapon production in Poland.
The MoU will explore the establishment of a final assembly facility and component production capabilities in Poland. This agreement will stabilize future production of the Javelin system for U.S. forces while providing unique opportunities for the Polish industry.
In June 2021, Poland's Territorial Defence Forces (TDF) completed Javelin Operator Training and were certified to maintain and operate Javelin, as well as conduct their own operator training. Following the training, the TDF's newly certified Javelin operators conducted a live-fire demonstration in Torun, Poland, during which they fired Javelin missiles.
Poland was the first international country to receive the Javelin F-Model missile variant.
