The new package of military assistance to Ukraine from Germany includes ammunition and special equipment

Ukraine received a new military aid package from Germany, which was based on ammunition for various systems, including anti-aircraft systems. This is stated on the website of the Ministry of Defense of Germany.

According to information received from Kyiv, the Germans supplied additional anti-aircraft missiles for the IRIS-T air defense systems transferred earlier. In addition, the aid package included 155 5 mm artillery shells, 30 40 mm grenade launchers, as well as 2 Bergepanzer 2 ARVs, four vehicles for transporting the wounded and 18 8X8 trucks with a special loading system (Wechselladesystem) for transportation of platforms and containers with equipment or ammunition. Moreover, these trucks were transferred for the first time.



In addition, another joyful news for Kyiv today came from Germany. The German defense concern Rheinmetall has reportedly decided to build a new ammunition plant to replenish the arsenals of the Bundeswehr. The main caliber that will be produced at the new plant is from 20 to 35 mm. This means that Germany will be able to provide Ukraine with ammunition for Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns, of which the Armed Forces of Ukraine have as many as 30 units, but things are not very good with shells.

According to the Germans themselves, the decision to build a new production facility was made after Switzerland refused to supply ammunition to Ukraine. New lines for the production of ammunition should begin to be mounted in January, the plant should begin work in June, and in July the first batch of shells for the Gepard ZSU should go to Ukraine. According to the manufacturer's plans, Kyiv should receive up to 300 thousand shells of 35 mm caliber.

        This is unlikely. Throughout NATO, the production and purchase of weapons is unfolding before our eyes. We are waiting for the second arms race.

      The logical question is, what was the GDP with the "liver sausage" talking about for more than an hour on the phone last week? The answer is nothing.

              The question is indeed interesting.
              Those whom I know who left in the 90s are most likely to return home. Those who have not yet returned, having already breathed in "freedom" and slightly fed German sausage after our 90s ..

                Again, your friends will return, and their children? Yes, there are many of us in America. But the people there also believe they will support it. Now they don't support it. No rallies. No demonstrations.
                It turns out that the bulk of those who left cease to be Russian.

                  And it also turns out that he is either Russian or has left. Regardless of what was written in the Soviet birth certificate or in the Soviet passport.
                  I'm Russian, that's why I'm here. And according to the Soviet passport, and because he did not leave. And friends have children for almost 15 years in Texas. "According to the passport" Moldovan-Ukrainian Jews with traces of Turkish blood. Here, when they received Russian citizenship, they said that they were Russians. Now they consider themselves Americans.

                      The son of my friends had exactly this phrase of a taxi driver recorded in his profile in social networks 5-7 years ago. Then, after a conversation with his father, he removed the phrase from his profile. but he didn't stop thinking.

                      And I’ll say about myself - everyone chooses for himself and his family whether to agree with the taxi driver or not about the Motherland. And about the ass - so I have been working all my life so that my family does not blow here either.

      Caliber 35 mm how quickly shoots back? 300 thousand is a lot. But how many?
      It is clear that it would be better to take all the ammunition and stop delivering it to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But while the railway nodes, bridges, tunnels are not the goals of the NWO.

        For one "Cheetah" 9 hours of continuous shooting (from Wikipedia).
        Whether this is a lot or a little in combat use - I can’t say.

      Our oligarchs bargained. It was necessary to quickly resolve the issue with Bandera, and not bargain. Now the Americans will pump xoxlov so that our cardboard army will crumble. And the scientific and technical competition between Putin's military-industrial complex and the Western one ... Putin only has Soviet galoshes left, and even those are running out.

      I wonder when the German gas pipeline from Norway will blow up? Germany is the center of the EU, and its brain and muscles. Without German industry, the EU will collapse. Russia needs to consider building sabotage submarines. Europe has declared a hybrid war on us, it's time to respond. First on neutral water. And if Europe gives weapons for strikes on the territory of Russia, then we can consider launching geraniums from neutral waters to Europe. They surfaced, launched from the submarine and left.

        It's right.
        But the Americans are also building a new plant for 155 mm shells.
        Half a million a year.

          They are only going to build this plant, they haven't even bought the land yet, not to mention everything else. Capitalism is private ownership of the means of production. The bourgeois will first weigh the pros and cons a thousand times, and then make a decision. And it is not a fact that the decision will be in favor of building a plant.

        An employee of the US Department of Defense estimated the approximate number of daily artillery shells consumed by Ukrainian and Russian troops during the armed conflict. According to him, Ukrainian troops fire daily from 4000 to 7000 artillery rounds during battles, while the RF Armed Forces fire many times more: about 20.

      What business.
      They poked a stick into the hole, thinking that a mouse would run out of there.
      And from there a poisonous snake leaned out that does not even think of running away.
      It is no wonder, with the support of fifty countries throughout the Western world.
      In fact, all the goals declared by Russia have given a completely opposite result.
      Ukraine is now the most militarized state in Europe. Weapons brought
      so many more will be brought in that probably neither the Third Reich nor Kaiser's Germany knew.
      Rampant nationalism and Russophobia is simply wild and not experienced.

      Kind of a strange question.
      People ripped off Yeltsin's Russia in the 90s, but should Putin's Russia be treated with a breath?
      ... How will they lead??...
      It's not even clear what the question is.

      And the truck as a concept is good! I drove to the appointed place, unloaded the body with ammunition on the ground and immediately drove back to the base. There is a camouflage awning on the body, with additional camouflage it is not noticeable at all. The amount of cargo is small - it is expensive to hit him with Iskander. From artillery, if unloaded into a caponier, it is difficult to get in, in conditions of counter-battery combat it is dangerous. So it turns out that either from a helicopter with a guided missile, or from artillery by Krasnopol. Ideally, don't let it go at all.
      With all this, in theory, the body should not be expensive, it should be easy to repair. In theory, it can be generally disposable.
      If you develop the idea, after emptying it, it can be sheathed in a caponier with boards and overlaid with sandbags (covered with soil) and turned into a residential trailer. Well, or in the bunker / bunker.
