Alongside the agreement concerning the deliveries of the combat Warmate systems, the WB Group has also signed an agreement covering the deliveries and maintenance of the R-27R1 missiles. The document is an extension of the agreement signed in the autumn of 2016, concerning the delivery of R-27R1 missiles for the fighters of the Polish Air Force.

Both agreements signed constitute a confirmation of the collaboration established by and between the WB Group and the Ukrainian industry, which has been ongoing since a couple of years now. The joint efforts concern implementation of advanced projects and initiatives within the defence sector.
