CZ, a Czech manufacturer of small arms, will supply the Czech army with small arms and ammunition worth up to 93 million dollars. http://polygonjournal.com  reports that the framework agreement was signed last week by Lubor Koudelka, deputy minister for armaments and acquisition, and Ladislav Britaňák, CEO of CZ.
 
“Our goal is to modernize the army, but also to support the Czech industry and maintain jobs in these difficult times,” explained Minister of Defense Lubomír Metnar. “The concluded framework agreement will enable the acquisition of up to 39,000 small arms made by a renowned manufacturer for our soldiers by 2025.”
 
In the event of maximum performance of the contract, the army will receive in the following years more than 16 thousand BREN 2 assault rifles, over 21 thousand CZ P-10 pistols, over 1,600 CZ 805 G1 underslung grenade launchers, nearly 100 CZ SCORPION PDWs and training ammunition. The purchase follows the contracts from 2010 to 2016, when the army purchased almost 40 thousand small arms from CZ.
