On September 7-10, 2021, during the XXIX International Defence Industry Exhibition in Kielce, we exhibited our products together with Zakłady Mechaniczne “Tarnów” SA, MESKO SA and PCO SA as part of the exhibition of Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa S.A.
Together with Zakłady Mechaniczne “Tarnów” SA and MESKO SA, we present the ZSMU-A3B, a remotely controlled Weapon Module, equipped with the PPK Pirat short-range anti-tank guided missile.
The ZSMU-1276 A3B module is armed with a 12.7 mm HGM, WKM – Bm (made by WZM “Tarnów”) and the anti-tank guided missile Pirat (made by: MESKO SA, TELESYSTEM – Mesko). Due to the ATGM guidance system using reflected laser beam, the integrated optoelectronic module ZMO-1 (PCO SA) was expanded with a laser rangefinder -LPD-A designator (TELESYSTEM-Mesko). In the presented module, it was installed above the original ZMO-1, and the final version is to use a variant of the CLU-P targeting and guidance system of the Pirat set (TELESYSTEM-Mesko, PCO SA).
Laser rangefinder-designator LDP-A is also used to illuminate the target for the 155 mm APR 155 guided missiles for howitzers and the 120 mm APR 120 for mortars, as well as laser-guided precision bombs.
The prototype CLU-P targeting and guidance unit for the Pirat set, developed by TELESYSTEM-Mesko and PCO SA, also had its premiere at the XXIX MSPO.
The CLU-P targeting and guidance unit for the Pirat set is on display at the PCO SA stand.
We have also exhibited the MSR “Kusza” mobile missile system with Grom / Piorun anti-aircraft guided missiles. On the second day of MSPO 2021, our stand was visited by Brig. Kazimierz Dyński, commander of the 3rd Warsaw Air Defence Missile Brigade.
The “KUSZA” mobile missile system can provide autonomous anti-aircraft defence for independently operating military units.
We developed “KUSZA” in cooperation with Mesko SA and the Institute of Optoelectronics of the Military University of Technology.
The features of the whole set are its modularity and compactness, allowing the “KUSZA” to be mounted on light vehicles, including those weighing up to 3.5 tonnes, and on platforms. Thanks to this, it is also possible to use it in the Territorial Defence Forces, on small vessels and other, ad hoc defence points. “KUSZA” provides air defence up to a ceiling of 3500 m and a distance of 5-5.5 km (with “Grom” missiles) or up to more than 6 km (with “Piorun” missiles).
At the MESKO SA stand, one can also see the “Piorun” portable anti-aircraft missile system, the “Pirat” anti-tank guided missile and both APR 120 and APR 155 guided artillery missiles, created with the participation of TELESYSTEM-Mesko.
The tradition of the fair is the 9th edition of the State Security Leader Gala, where prestigious awards are granted for innovation and special achievements in the field of supporting the defence system and capabilities, as well as for actions taken for the benefit of state security. The “Pirat” Light Anti-Tank Missile Set developed by MESKO SA in a consortium with TELESYSTEM – Mesko has won the recognition of the Chapter. This system increases the ability to combat tanks, armoured fighting vehicles and helicopters. “Pirat” is also characterized by high resistance to the opponent’s countermeasures. The jury also appreciated the fact it is possible to manufacture “Pirat” from domestic components only. This makes it possible to become independent from the supply of this type of missiles from abroad. It also places Poland among the few countries with the production capacity of this type of military equipment.
