Poland has ordered 50 more Javelin Light Weight Command Launch Units and approximately 500 FGM-148F Javelin anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), the Polish Armaments Agency (AA) announced on its website on 31 January. Warsaw was exercising an option in a 2020 Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract with the United States for 60 Command Launch Units and 180 Javelin missiles worth USD54.5 million for the Polish Territorial Defence Forces (Wojska Obrony Terytorialnej:WOT).

The original FMS contract included spare parts and repair equipment; training of instructors and operators on how to employ the Javelin, including with simulators; and on how to handle and use ammunition. The contract extension includes additional logistics and training packages.

Together, the original FMS contract and exercising the option are worth USD158 million.

Deliveries to the WOT, which has been using Javelin since 2021, are expected to be completed by 2026.
