According to the agreement with an undisclosed amount, Česká zbrojovka will supply Ukraine with all the parts used to assemble CZ BREN 2 rifles.

Quote: “This first step in the project of full technology transfer for the CZ BREN 2 rifle is directly related to its successful deployment on the Ukrainian battlefield in the hands of the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” CEO Jan Zajíc commented.

CZ BREN 2 rifles are used by the Czech Army, among others, and meet NATO standards. They have also been used on the battlefield by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the armies and combat units of France, Portugal, Poland and Romania.

The CZ BREN 2, according to the manufacturer, is a versatile weapon that is well compatible with other NATO weapons.

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Czech Republic has sent 62 tanks, 131 infantry fighting vehicles, 6 helicopters and 16 air defence systems from its reserves to Kyiv. In return, it received about 750 million euros in compensation.

Reportedly, the Czech state arms company VOP CZ has not yet begun repairing T-64 tanks for the Ukrainian army, as agreed last year, because the Ukrainian side has yet to deliver a single tank.
