Lockheed-RTX JV signs MoU to produce Javelin anti-tank missiles in Poland

Lockheed Martin, in collaboration with Raytheon Technologies (RTX), is set to expand its production of the Javelin anti-tank weapon system in Poland.

The two companies, operating under the Javelin Joint Venture, recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa to explore the possibility of establishing a final assembly facility and component production capabilities within Poland.

This strategic move comes amid increasing demand for U.S. weaponry in Europe. However, it’s notable that the focus of these procurements has predominantly been on more cost-effective and less complex items like shoulder-fired missiles, artillery, and drones, rather than high-cost items such as fighter jets and main battle tanks.

The Javelin missile system, developed by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, is renowned for its effectiveness against armored vehicles. To date, the Javelin Joint Venture has produced over 50,000 Javelin missiles and more than 12,000 reusable Command Launch Units.

This expansion into Poland not only underscores the versatility and demand for the Javelin system but also strengthens Lockheed Martin’s global presence in the defense industry.
