The first K239 Chunmoo Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MRLS) for the Polish Army was rolled out at Hanwha Aerospace's manufacturing facility in Changwon, South Korea, on 19th June, 2023. The rocket artillery integrated onto a Polish 8x8 truck was shipped a day after at the port of Masan.

According to the manufacturer, Hanwha Aerospace, the shipment came just a month after the initial batch of three Jelcz vehicles arrived in Korea to be assembled and integrated at Hanwha's factory, while all the remaining 200+ Polish Chunmoo systems dubbed HOMAR-K will be manufactured in Poland in partnership with Polish defence partners, which is expected to maximize the economic benefits to the local industry.
