Development Centre of Mechanical Devices in Gliwice. The Centre has
been broadening its competences for over 40 years, guaranteeing the
highest level of realization of a task so vital for the Polish defensibility.
The agreement between the Polish Defence Holding and the international
company BAE Systems, is to create a completely new armored platform,
equipped with innovative solutions, making the platform adapted to the
requirements of a modern battlefield. It is planned to replace currently
used heavy tracked vehicles with the modern solution of OBRUM sp. z
o.o. Zaktady Mechaniczne in Labedy, due to its history and vast experience
is considered as a final manufacturer of the new tank, which may become
an export best-seller of Polish Defence Holding. Direct Support Vehicle

for a specific mission and tasks. The PL-01 is composed of a chassis
(multipurpose modular tracked platform in heavy version) and an unmanned
turret 105 mm or 120 mm caliber cannon with autoloader unit. A fully
working prototype is expected in 2016 and the PL-01 could enter in service
- The PL-01 can be configured as command vehicle, armoured recovery vehicle, mine sweeping vehicle and other variants.
