Pentagon Will Increase Artillery Production Sixfold for UkraineThe Army’s top acquisition official says production of the 155-millimeter shells badly needed by Kyiv will rise to 90,000 a month in two years.
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is racing to boost its production of artillery shells by 500 percent within two years, pushing conventional ammunition production to levels not seen since the Korean War as it invests billions of dollars to make up for shortfalls caused by the war in Ukraine and to build up stockpiles for future conflicts.
The effort, which will involve expanding factories and bringing in new producers, is part of “the most aggressive modernization effort in nearly 40 years” for the U.S. defense industrial base, according to an Army report.
The new investment in artillery production is in part a concession to reality: While the Pentagon has focused on fighting wars with small numbers of more expensive precision-guided weapons, Ukraine is largely relying on howitzers firing unguided shells.
Before Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, the U.S. Army’s production of 14,400 unguided shells a month had been sufficient for the American military’s way of war. But the need to supply Kyiv’s armed forces prompted Pentagon leaders to triple production goals in September, and then double them again in January so that they could eventually make 90,000 or more shells a month.
The most action they've seen is Turkey using them in Syria
Kosovo, too - don't think they did much, though.
And Turkey used some against ISIS.
I thought that's what they're giving to UA, the pre up-armor models...The Turks failed to operate tanks properly / apply the right tactics and they took a beating.
P.s. Turkey does also only have old Leo2 models without the big armor upgrade.
did we ever find out the results of the investigation on what happened to the nordstream? my dad, over thanksgiving break, was telling me the US was behind itthere's prob a dusty ass filing cabinet full of floppies at the cia that they can just stick in and type run.exe that will do things like shut down the russian power grid or sabotage gas pipelines to explode.
