Poland has announced the opening of its new Regional Competence Center for the Abrams family of main battle tanks (MBT) in Poznań, western Poland. The facility will serve as a regional hub to maintain and sustain Abrams for users in Central and Eastern Europe.

It is ideally situated in a country that received its first Abrams tanks last year and is geographically situated next to Ukraine. In January 2023, the U.S. government announced the supply of 31 M1A2 Abrams tank vehicles to Ukraine.

Notably, the U.S. Army’s V-Corps are also located in Poznań. This military unit serves as a tactical headquarters that commands all U.S. forces on NATO’s eastern flank.  

Poland’s state armament consortium, PGZ, had originally signed a deal with the U.S. Abrams manufacturer General Dynamics to establish this new “competence center” at the end of June last year.

The Polish military has ordered 366 Abrams tanks, with the new service facility largely established in response to this order.
