Turkiye has it, but TSK is not interested.

I think this is a wise move by Poland. The firepower and versatility that Carl-Gustaf can deliver is unmatched.

And for the numbers.
Little more then 6000 launchers CarlGustafM4 + few hundred thousands ammo.
Pretty much for all our ground forces. That will be main and only granade laucher in PL soon
Another plus side is short time delivery 2024-2027.

Not cheap but necessary buy.
