It looks like the Poles are going to purchase the US HIMARS system for their army.  This seems to me to be a smart move.  Not only is it a capable system, but the more integrated into NATO equipment, the better off the Polish military is.

This may be the ultimate replacement for the Army’s M-16/M-4.  It sounds way cool.  I hope it works out.
