ACS M109A7 Paladin was transferred from the USA to Germany, they are expected in Poland too

38

American troops are strengthening the artillery component in Europe. As it became known, more than 30 pieces of artillery equipment were delivered from the United States to Germany, including the latest modifications of the M109A7 Paladin self-propelled artillery mounts. Also, the means of field artillery and several tons of ammunition for artillery installations were transferred to the territory of the FRG by sea.


After unloading at the port, military equipment and ammunition were sent to the so-called Coleman barracks - to the territory of a military base near Mannheim. The 405th Field Support Brigade of the US Army is stationed there.

It is expected that in the near future the US military will bring the M109A7 Paladin ACS to live-fire exercises.

Let's remind that "Paladin" - self-propelled howitzers of 155 mm caliber. The mass of the A7 version is about 36 tons. Ammunition - 28 ammunition. At the same time, the howitzer can use high-precision ammunition, including the active-reactive M982 Excalibur. According to some reports, a consignment of such ammunition, which is distinguished by a high price, was also delivered to Germany from the United States.

It turned out that the "Paladins" are expected in Poland as well. Materials appeared in the Polish press stating that part of the equipment of the US Army brigade from Mannheim could be sent to the Powidz military base under construction in Poland. The infrastructure of the airbase was located there for a long time, but then it was decided to expand the military facility with the placement of armored vehicles on it (among other things). The Pentagon does not comment on the possibility of transferring the Paladin ACS to Polish Powidz. Although there is such a possibility, especially after Trump's decisions to transfer part of the American contingent from Germany to Polish territory. His replacement, Joe Biden, has not yet canceled this decision of the 45th President of the United States.

      So little by little, they are pumping up Europe with weapons and troops. Question: does anyone believe that this is against Iran? laughing
      It seems to me that it is already necessary to raise the diplomatic storm at least. Instead of pretending that this is normal, and explaining that we saw such "partners" in the coffin

        It is necessary to demonstrate as much as possible the training launches of various missile systems. Then maybe these Poles will think. And in other matters that our rulers can oppose because their children and wives live over the hill

        Americans will quickly come up with an excuse, this is on a temporary basis. For exercises only

        well what Iran?

        This is against North Korea. yes

        But in general, it's time to push to the west "The coalition"- for balance.

          I believe if we suddenly withdraw our troops
          and the civilian population 50-70 km. from the border, they will chuck much stronger laughing

        It is not necessary to raise a diplomatic storm, but to raise troops and draw them to the western border. In principle, they do this, but I would also drag part of the Pacific Fleet to the Baltic, but unfortunately there are not enough ships in the Pacific Fleet if a storm starts ...

          Yes Yes. After all, we have the freshest and most modern on the eastern border. And there, for a second, Seoul and Okinawa. This is at least. And to cut to the territory of the United States is not so far. Another thing is that any country has intelligence, and any preparations will be noticed half a year before the start ... before the start of any mess.

          The worst thing is that they currently have at least three real directions: West, East and South. In all three directions, they can also use their vassals. Those. they do not need to move troops across the ocean in whole divisions. And for us, for a normal concentration of weapons, either we will have to determine the priority area, or carry out mobilization and transfer parts from, say, the Ural Military District.

          But I don't even want to think about such options. Because all this will end with a total fox.

          I'm not even very interested in what China will do in this situation. Most likely, he will wait and closely follow the development of events.

            I am talking to the Pacific Fleet and it is problematic to transfer the strike group to the ship, because "they are not there."
            At the expense of China, you are right. Their ideology is written as "an intelligent Chinese monkey will sit on a tree and watch a fight between a lion and a bear" (I will not vouch for the images of animals, because I heard this legend for a long time, but I remember the meaning well).

      Why are you so scared, well, it comes, it comes from the end of the Second World War. It does not decrease back for natural reasons. You don't think that there will be news about the departure of 30 outdated self-propelled guns back to the United States to replace the arrivals.

    Yes, this is a wunderwaffle, the rate of fire is 2 rounds per minute - that's not it for you! And if the lace is lost, then you can always use an elastic band from panties! Not that silly quilted jackets with their automated charging!

    Interestingly, ordinary Poles, the population understand that they are viewed as a bargaining chip, cannon fodder? Or is the pride and excitement of the arrival of 30 American SPGs overshadowing the mind?

    Not a very good trend.
    B-52s at the Norgs, bellicose statements by Sumerian politicians, a large number of reconnaissance flights by NATO forces, exercises near our borders in the west.
    It's time to restore the Nivensky and Chernyakhovsky air regiments, the Moscow Minsk division in Kaliningrad.

    In Lithuania, similar German self-propelled guns are deployed more at the same training ground in Samogitia, where the Leopard tanks are located, the newest modification. Under Vilnius, in Pabrad, the US tank battalion with Abrams tanks is located, and then the deputies in the State Duma of the Russian Federation boasted as one regiment of the Pskov Airborne Forces throughout Lithuania , at 24 o'clock famously "they throw their caps over." This is to prevent an easy walk, as in 1940 "at the request of the workers."
