The Ottokar-Brzoza program involved the acquisition by the Polish Armed Forces of a battery module for self-propelled tank destroyers. It is a modern platform capable of destroying armoured targets with anti-tank guided missiles. In addition to the tank destroyer itself, the module will also include auxiliary and command engines. The PGZ-Ottokar consortium is responsible for developing, producing, and delivering tank destroyers.
