Production of unusable artillery shells for the Ukrainian Armed Forces revealed in Ukraine

In Ukraine, the production of unusable artillery shells for the Ukrainian Armed Forces was revealed. The counterintelligence service of the SBU revealed the scheme for the supply of homemade ammunition. This was reported on the website of the special services.


According to the SBU, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has entered into a state contract with an unnamed commercial Kiev firm for the manufacture and supply of the Ukrainian Armed Forces of artillery shells. Under the agreement, the customer, represented by the Ministry of Defense, paid the commercial structure UAH 50 million. At the same time, the shells manufactured under the state order were not suitable for use.

As established in the SBU, the manufacture of artillery shells was organized in an artisanal way in rooms unsuitable for the production of shells. The shells transferred to the Ministry of Defense did not meet the technical requirements and were not adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The entire consignment was seized within the framework of the initiated criminal case.


The operation to seize substandard shells was carried out on the territory of the Sumy region of Ukraine, where production was organized.

The message does not specify what caliber shells the commercial structure was trying to supply, but in 2019 the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the conclusion of a contract for the production of 152-mm artillery shells with a "domestic supplier" that offered "the lowest price." The name of the company that received the order was not given.

      An example of Karabakh - how did the sides shoot each other at one another - and not Soviet-Russian missiles and shells? And it was not for nothing that OURS sent OURS to neutralize the ammunition manufactured by US ... soldier

            And they really can't. Somewhere it flashed that more than half of the 404 fat consumed in the country is imported, moreover, mainly from klyat Moskalivbecause it is expensive in Europe.
            But before the referendum on independence shouted "Moskal z'iv your fat! Mock to drink your bottle!"
            By the way, alcohol is also largely imported.

                  And this is the same bacon, only smoked
                  Unsmoked bacon predominates here.

                  Lard "Siberian" made in Germany under the Listerman brand laughing ... Only suitable for roasting.

        What is your post about, dear ?! It seems like there are a lot of letters, but the meaning is completely absent! What is the relation of the military base in Karabakh and the actions of our peacekeepers to the handicraft production of shells in the square? The example that you gave is clear to you IMHO.

        In Afghanistan, there was a case when our soldier sold grenades to dushmans. Only he did pre-sale preparation: he altered the fuse, removing the delay on it. In general, after triggering the primer, the grenade exploded immediately. They hunted for this fighter from two sides: the spooks, since a lot of these grenades were killed, and our special department, since this is the sale of weapons. Found, planted.

        Yes, all this is nonsense. The shells were made on certified equipment, so they will give their "pennies" to someone! It's just that the shells, when fired, turn over and fly backwards, it is not clear how and it is not clear where ... And the money was spent, so they came up with zrada, like someone is to blame, but not they !!!

Here there is a demand from the POPULATION and trying to satisfy it, as with alcohol. But can you imagine that our Armed Forces would buy artillery ammunition from such "manufacturers"?

    exactly what you say. this plant in the city of Shostka was built during the reign of Peter-1, like Kazan. There is a legend: in 1941, when the Red Army was retreating, there was no command to blow up the plant. Why? But the Germans will not work on it anyway. When the fascists retreated, they also did not blow up. (Already Germans). Why? They reasoned like this: "Let's blow up, the Russians will build a new one. Let's leave, the Russians will work on it for another 300 years." Here the notorious "Svema" was banged, and the powder and capsule shnyaga were driven. some pensioners. Previously, specialists were supplied by the universities of Kazan, Tomsk, St. Petersburg military mech, Donetsk. And now the managers of the Ukrainian shabby bursses.

      This is the TASCO corporation, which rents an area with a staff of up to 100 people on the territory of Svema from the former Research Institute of Magnetic Information Media. This is how what remains of Svema looks now:

    Why are those shells substandard? This is a carved blank, chiseled on a machine. Or two blanks, depending on which model.

    This is done on ONE machine.

      How can you make a shell substandard?

      I rejected a lot of shells. Gas pores in explosives are too large (more than 4mm is not allowed) or the thickness of the shell is not uniform.

        Curious, how is explosives diagnosed? It seems to be poured there with melt.

        And how, in general, can you make uneven walls to a body of revolution on a lathe? Or did you deal with a different technology for the production of blanks?

          It seems to be poured there with melt.

          I'm not familiar with technology. The less you know, the better you sleep :) Part of my job was to decode X-ray images of shells, bombs and fuse grenades. Major void defect in explosives. I heard somewhere a shell in a cannon exploded. I think that at the moment of a shot, from a sharp compression of a large gas pore, detonation may occur or a defect may affect the trajectory.
          Perhaps the blank was not machined, but poured out?

            Well, in mass production, of course. Sharpening a hollow shell from a cylinder is not technologically advanced, two-thirds of the metal will go to waste.

            But if the task is to make them in the garage, this may be the lesser of evils. Rolled products in the form of a cylinder of the required diameter are sold everywhere, but it is not so easy to cast / forge a non-standard billet normally.

            A circle of 160 by 500 weighs about 80 kilograms. At a price of even 70 rubles per kilo, it will be less than $ 100. And shells sell for a thousand, there was an article here. Saving even 7% (two-thirds of the mass) from the price of the finished product is hardly critical.

    In the production of such ammunition, at least 3 cycles. The first is casting followed by forging. The second is turning the outer and inner surfaces (mainly the thread for the fuse) with the installation of a copper sealing band (sometimes without it). The third is the equipment of its explosives and the installation of fuses. The photo shows the second cycle. From a technological point of view, the simplest. The basis is a lathe (the main machine park of the country, type from DIP to 16K20) with a mechanical copier and (or) CNC. The main problem is not to sink the base diameter (length). Therefore, these operations were carried out by low-skilled workers (boys) and at any enterprise (workshop) with a lathe of the required dimensions. The main reasons for marriage in the first and second cycle.

      I believe that casting / forging in handicraft (as in the article) production is hardly applicable.

      I would sharpen it from a solid cylinder or forged pipe. Waste, of course, a couple of orders of magnitude more, but you can do it in any garage.

      I rejected a lot of shells. Gas pores in explosives are too large (more than 4mm is not allowed) or the thickness of the shell is not uniform.

    Google to help - "clandestine production of ammunition", only the country of the Russian Federation. You will be surprised. The same accordion as in the neighbors. The news is not ochem.

    Google will certainly help, if not to confuse the piss with the finger. Then the reasons for surprise will disappear.
