Representatives of Ukroboronprom State Concern and Ukrspecexport State Enterprise and leader of the official delegation of the Republic of Poland - Deputy Defense Minister for Weapons and Arms Modernization Waldemar Skrzypczak - discussed bilateral military and technical cooperation during the international exhibition Defense & Security 2013, which is taking place in Bangkok on November 4-7, the press service of the Ukroboronprom told Interfax-Ukraine.

"The Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland plan to upgrade their anti-tank systems and modernize the weapons of their combat helicopters," Skrzypczak said.

"We are ready to consider the acquisition of Ukrainian-produced advanced 105mm anti-tank guided missiles which were developed by the Promin State Design Bureau. We are also interested in the joint production of high-precision weapons."

This proposal of the Polish defense ministry will be discussed at a meeting of the Ukrainian-Polish sub-commission for cooperation in the defense industry, which will take place in Kiev in November.

In July 2013, Ukraine has conducted a live firing test of its new antitank missile system “Corsar” at a firing range near Kiev. According to the Luch State Design Bureau, Corsar has a firing range of up to 2,500 meters – double that of any existing portable antitank complex. It can operate in temperatures from minus 40 to plus 60 degrees Celsius (minus 40 to plus 140 Fahrenheit), the company says.
