The company would undergo a fire certification at the Nowa Dęba range, being supervised by the US Army, and following the standard Abrams MBT crews training procedure.

The Polish Armed Forces currently operate 40 M1A1FEP main battle tanks, 26 out of which are undergoing the so-called deprocessing - inspection checking their condition and compliance with the documentation, following a long shipping process.

The remaining 76 examples out of 116 M1A1FEP MBTs ordered shall be delivered to Poland by the end of this year. The first out of 250 M1A2SEPv3 MBTs ordered (currently in production) are expected to be delivered in late 2024, despite the delivery deadline set as 2025-2026.
