Date: Issue 112 - February 2022

Defence Turkey: Can we start our interview with some information on the WARMATE Loitering Munition System, which is one of WB GROUP’s flagship products and which is already in the Turkish market.  What can you tell us about WARMATE in Turkey and WARMATE in the global market?

Marcin MACIEJEWSKI: First of all, I would like to remind everyone that a couple years ago, the Turkish Armed Forces were one of our first foreign customers and bought the WARMATE loitering munition. We delivered it and trained the soldiers on the system’s operation. The WARMATE is a close air support system, an “on demand” solution for ground troops and small units.
