        Actually, the city is called St. Petersburg.
        Although it is named after St. Petersburg, the birthplace of Peter Dementiev, the founder of the city (well, in honor of the founder himself, too), the name is still different.

      I read the headline ... I think maybe a mistake ... after I figured it out. Well, they will produce what? What is the essence of the article? What to discuss then? The style of journalists who, for the sake of attracting attention, do not disdain anything?

    Foo-oo-oo ... To what they have sunk .. To the headlines of the "yellow press", to the "enticement" ... If only they click on the heading, and there at least the grass does not grow.
    Well, why not just write "St. Petersburg, Florida, USA." ?? Everything would be clear - the Americans are making shells for their army, and perhaps something useful and positive remained from the reading.
    And now - a banal and vulgar kidok. 100% of those who opened the article clicked in complete bewilderment - why did our city of Petra decide to produce shells for the sworn "partner" ?!
    Wow ...

        So the Americans are European colonists, and that's what they used to call it. Moreover, it is mostly Protestants, but Catholics in South America called Saints everywhere.
        They have many European names there.
        The city was founded by John C. Williams from Detroit, who bought land here in 1876 and Peter Dementiev (Peter Demens), who built the railway station in 1888. St. Petersburg was registered on February 29, 1892, at that time it had a population of approximately 300 people. The city was named in honor of the birthplace of Dementiev, St. Petersburg, the capital of the Russian Empire
        news is a bit old
        General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Inc., St. Petersburg, Florida, was awarded a $ 16,098,186 cost-plus-fixed-fee, incrementally-funded contract with options for the 120mm Advanced Multi-Purpose (AMP), XM1147 High Explosive Multi-Purpose with Tracer (HEMP-T) cartridges
        Alliant Techsystems Operations, Plymouth, Minnesota, was awarded a $ 15,997,541 cost-plus-fixed-fee incrementally funded contract with options for the 120mm Advanced Multi-Purpose (AMP), XM1147 High Explosive Multi-Purpose with Tracer (HEMP-T) cartridges

        I think it’s clear without translation. This is in addition to training.
        M1147 (AMP) is also replacing the M830 and M830A1 shells

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised. Our business has no conscience at all. For example, we supply engines for putting military satellites into orbit and nothing. We’ll tell you another tale about the zombies, about what niche we will occupy in the market, about currency and taxes, about pensions and new technologies, and rushed to arm the enemy
