PGZ to deliver naval guns for Polish Kormoran II-class MCMVs

The $21.170m contract will include delivery of three units of OSU-35K weapon system.

PGZ Stocznia Wojenna (SW) has signed a contract to deliver naval armament systems for the Polish Navy’s Kormoran II-class vessels.

The estimated value of this contract, signed with PIT-RADWAR, is approximately $21.170m (PLN100m). It is valid for a period of five years and is expected to conclude in 2026.

Both the companies are a part of the Polish Armament Group (Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa – PGZ).

The contract will see delivery of three units of OSU-35K weapon system, which will be installed onto the Kormoran II-class mine countermeasure vessels (MCMV).

The vessels of this class have been designed to enhance Poland’s maritime security and to perform mine hunting operations in Polish exclusive economic zone.

Built by Remontowa Shipbuilding-led consortium, the Kormoran MCMVs also support tactical operations in the Baltic and North Sea region.

Once equipped, the new OSU-35K will enhance the capability of MCMVs to detect and counter enemy airborne threats, including aircraft, helicopters, missiles and drones.

The OSU-35K is a remotely controlled, modular, stabilised naval artillery system that can be equipped with various types of vessels.

It is a multi-tasking, anti-aircraft direct defence system, designed to operate independently as well as with the ship’s combat management system.

According to PIT-RADWAR, the system features an AM-35 automatic 35mm cannon, an independent target tracking system, a ZGS-35 integrated warhead, a RSKO-35K reserve fire control post and a BSKO-35K fire control system block.

The system is also capable of combating lightly armoured as well as unarmoured surface and land targets.

In 2020, PGZ SW and OSI Maritime Systems signed a strategic agreement to provide Integrated Navigation and Tactical Systems for the Kormoran II-class vessels.
