Despite constant statements about the transition to NATO weapons, Ukraine continues to purchase the former Soviet weapon in countries that were once part of the Warsaw Pact. According to Ukrainian media, in July the state-owned foreign trade company Ukrinmash purchased EXCALIBUR ARMY spol. From the Czech company. sro sixteen 122-mm self-propelled howitzers 2С1 "Carnation".


Ukraine purchased in the Czech Republic self-propelled howitzers 2С1 "Carnation"


As follows from the documents, in July of this year, the Ukrinmash company purchased in the Czech Republic 16 122-mm self-propelled guns 2С1 “Gvozdika” of Polish production and two sets of artillery pieces of howitzers for use as donors for repairs. These self-propelled guns, before entering the APU, will undergo a small modernization at the Shepetovka Repair Plant, during which they will install a new Ukrainian-made walkie-talkie and satellite navigation system.

It should be noted that this purchase of "Carnations" in the Czech Republic is not the first, it was previously reported that last year the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine received 40 self-propelled howitzers, which also underwent modernization and were delivered both to army units and to units of the National Guard.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine got 563 units of the Gvozdika self-propelled guns, however, until the 2014 year, only 300 howitzers survived, of which 159 were at storage facilities, as they had already been withdrawn from service. Later, some of them were restored, and the other acted as "donors". Losses of "Carnations" in the battles in the Donbass are minimal, since in 2014 they were almost not used in battles.

Self-propelled guns purchased in the Czech Republic were made in Poland, have the name 2С1М Goździk and are a licensed copy of the Soviet self-propelled gun 2С1 "Carnation", all of them have been removed from storage. They differ from Soviet-made cars by the presence of the SW680T diesel engine, other road wheels and hydrodynamic guards for moving on water.

Earlier it was reported that Ukraine purchased ammunition for self-propelled anti-aircraft anti-aircraft missile and gun mounts 2С6 "Tunguska" and grenade launchers GP-25 and GP-30. You can read more about this in material ""IN".

      Well, then they say and write that there is no money in Ukraine, although the weapon is Soviet, but no one will give it to them like that and it is not so cheap.

      Yeah, and nothing, that on the territory of Ukraine, at the Kharkov Tractor Plant, these self-propelled guns were just produced, right up to the collapse of the USSR. The Irony of Fate...

      You probably don’t know, and you’ll be laughing for a long time, but Ukraine has ALREADY been buying fat abroad for the past five years, since the signing of the association, mostly in Poland and not a lot in Germany.

    This is nonsense, we have only used cloves on both sides, I am generally silent about the losses.
    Well, I see it is fast, since they’re buying used equipment.

    Yes, in Ukraine, after the collapse, there were hundreds of them that had already managed to sell everything. And they say where the weapons come from in the Lao PDR.

    The countries of the former socialist bloc make good money on the needs of the Ukrainian defense industry. How can one fail to remember once again - who is the war, and who is mother. But what about the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, which, according to Poroshenko, worked almost in three shifts forging a victory over the "aggressor"?

    Strange purchase. It is explainable in two cases, or urgently need a technique to intensify hostilities or another way to withdraw money from the participants in the transaction (or all at once).

    Ukraine seems to be switching over to NATO standards, and it is buying up Soviet models from storage all over the world. When they switch to Western models, the Americans will have this good in bulk after Afghanistan and Iraq

    Hmm. The outskirts are getting ready for something again. It’s good if the boilers turn out again. And I hope they will be the last in her history.
