Originally, Poland intended to procure about 500 M270 MLRS systems from the US. But according to the Minister of Defence, Warsaw cannot afford the cost of this amount of acquisition. Then, the country turned its face to ROK. 
Poland intends to establish the most significant land force in the European Union. After the decision, huge contracts started to announce. A possible main reason for the Korean weapon choice is delivery time and cost.
