Czech Republic-based CZUB has secured a significant tender to supply the Czech Army with new rifles, pistols, PDWs, and grenade launchers.

The award, announced by the CZ Group last week, includes 16,000 BREN 2 rifles; more than 21,000 CZ P-10 pistols; 1,600 CZ 805 G1 underslung grenade launchers; and nearly 100 CZ SCORPION PDWs along with training ammunition.

In all, the tender is expected to be worth up to 2.35 billion Koruna ($93 million) with deliveries by 2025. The new contract comes in the wake of a series of awards over the past decade for more than 40,000 small arms to the Army from CZ.

“The Army of the Czech Republic demands only the best armament,” said Luboš Kovařík, president of the CZ Group. “This contract is an assurance for us that we are doing our job well and create high-quality and innovative products that hold up even in the most demanding military and law enforcement markets.”

According to a release from CZUB, the company, with roots going back to 1919, currently supplies firearms to armed forces in more than 40 countries and exports to the consumer market in 90 countries. It’s U.S. subsidiary, CZ-USA, is building a new 65,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Arkansas to better supply the American market.

Earlier this year at SHOT Show, CZ-USA debuted their new semi-auto 5.56 NATO Bren 2 Ms in a long-awaited carbine format.
