  • 00:50:00 The Polish military is modernizing, and apparently has decided that they need to buy Korean tanks in order to compete with other European militaries. This is important because the European market is dominated by a number of European firms, with some significant American and Israeli penetration in key system areas. Countries with a focus on indigenous production, like France, also look to the US for military hardware. If you're in the West and one of the major Powers, the UK, France, Sweden, or Italy, you build your own tank. If you're any other Western Country, you buy the Leopard tank from Germany. post-Cold War not much has really changed, with Italy developing its own domestic tank, Germany also starting to sell all its extra leopards to anyone who would buy them, and Korea having trade advantages over European powers that are much more frictionless. It is much harder to lock a Polish company out of a bidding process in Europe than it is to lock out for example a Korean company. Even if that Polish company licensed a lot of its core technology offering from the Koreans, there is still a lot of uncertainty about whether or not production will be difficult to bring online, there will be delays and cost overruns, and it seems unlikely that the Polish industry will
