On October 26, the Romanian Ministry of Defense announced the deployment of the Gepard 1A2 35-mm self-propelled anti-aircraft gun in Poland for the first time. The sets were included in the equipment of sub-unit 102 soldiers from the 3rd Potaissa Air Defense Battalion from Turda in Romania. The unit and equipment are to be stationed in Poland for half a year as part of the NATO battalion battle group eFP (Enhanced Forward Presence) in Orzysz and Bemowo Piskie.

35-mm anti-aircraft Gepard 1A2 cannons were deployed in Poland as part of the 8th rotation of the Romanian military contingent stationed in the country in order to strengthen NATO's eastern flank.
Interestingly, these sets were also deployed outside Romania for the first time. They replaced the towed Oerlikon GDF-003 anti-aircraft systems with 2 x 35-mm guns stationed in Poland for three and a half years.
