The agreement was signed during Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico's official visit to Poland. The vehicle would be a combination of Polish armored modular vehicles Rosomak and a Slovakian gun turret.
Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz was quoted as saying by various media on Friday that the deal is a success of the Polish weapons industry. He said, "We want to promote Rosomaks not only in Europe, but also worldwide."
The agreement secured the employment of 3,500 people working at the plant in Siemianowice Slaskie, where the armored vehicles are made.
