A Quick Look At The Polish DROMADER Individual Equipment Program

Monday, February 12th, 2018

At the end of the recent article regarding Poland’s ongoing efforts of selecting a new camouflage pattern for its armed forces, there was a brief mention of the DROMADER individual equipment program, which is planned to be implemented, regardless of the final camouflage pattern chosen. Although info is limited, we did receive an update on the program regarding a consortium of PGZ companies which are being used to expand DROMANDER to include other specialist needs.

One such expansion is DROMADER-SF, which is aimed at police and army counter-terrorist units, images for which you can see above.

We were also provided with images detailing a comparison between DROMADER soldier with MSBS / GROT rifle in MAPA camo and a standard PL Soldier in wz. 93 camo, “Kandahar” vest and “BERYL” wz. 96. rifle.
