The Polish arms company Huta Stalowa Wola (HSW) and Rheinmetall have signed a license agreement for the production of components for the German company's 120mm tank cannon in Poland. As HSW writes in a press release, the 20-year contract also includes the manufacture of the barrel for the L44 smooth-barreled cannon. Polish Leopard 2 tanks are said to be equipped with the weapons. The country has several hundred copies of the combat vehicle.

According to a Rheinmetall spokesman, production is only carried out for Polish needs. He did not want to confirm the 20 year contract. Rheinmetall and HSW have been working together for several years. The German company supplied 155mm pipes for the Krab self-propelled howitzer produced by HSW.
