French Defense Minister: All Caesar self-propelled howitzers transferred to Ukraine require repair

French 155-mm Caesar self-propelled howitzers transferred to Ukraine require repair. This was stated by French Defense Minister Sebastian Lecornu following a meeting with the head of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry Reznikov.


The Armed Forces of Ukraine had problems with French howitzers. As it turned out, out of the 18 howitzers delivered earlier, every one is out of order today, and two require major repairs. According to Lecornu, one howitzer is completely out of action, one is immobilized due to damage to the cockpit, and the remaining sixteen have various technical problems that cannot be fixed in the field. The most common of them is a large wear of the gun barrel. As it turned out, the French howitzers are not designed for intensive firing.

At a meeting in Kyiv between the French minister and the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Reznikov, the latter complained that Kyiv had not mastered the serious repair of French self-propelled guns, so they had to be taken abroad, in particular to Poland, and this "reduces the combat capability" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Therefore, Ukraine would like to receive another batch of Caesar self-propelled howitzers from France, preferably as soon as possible and as much as possible. However, Lecornu made it clear to his Ukrainian counterpart that Kyiv would not get anything from the presence of the French army, the only way out was to increase the production of howitzers, but this was not a quick matter.

As for the self-propelled guns already delivered to Ukraine, the French propose to increase the production of the necessary spare parts, as well as train the Ukrainian military for more serious repairs.

By the way, at the talks Reznikov raised the issue of possible deliveries of French tanks Leclerc, but was refused. According to the French minister, the supply of tanks is excluded, as they are too complex and the Ukrainian military will not be able to properly service and maintain them in working order.

      The main thing is to put it down and cut down the money .. But in general, infa is walking that there are a lot of weapons from the outskirts now on the shelves of all kinds of igils and other Africans and the most modern .. I won’t be surprised if some kind of "Patriot" lights up somewhere in the BV, let alone "javelins "so in general, as Kalash are already sold in bulk)))

        , and "javelins" are already sold in bulk, like Kalash in bulk)))
        В darknet there are proposals not only for "javelins". By the way, at the beginning of autumn, about 200 sets were spent by "Hulls" - M141, Javelin, NLAW, MATADOR, etc. .....

    They no longer hesitate to say - "Ukraine is on you, that we are not good!" This is a small business, and Ukraine is "like a light bulb" for France, but you need to fulfill the will of the "suzerain from across the river."
    Here are two faces in the photo, Sebastian with a meaningful look - "Well, I shoved you, but I didn’t lie," and Reznik with a satisfied mug - "thank you sir, we are happy to lick your ass."
    Although even here the cunning Jew had his zuhenvey.

      - Yes, the caftan burned through.
      - Is it possible to sew?
      - There is no needle.
      - How big is the hole?
      - There are collars and sleeves.
      - Buy a new one.
      - So borrow money?

    Gay Europeans over and over again show Svidomo that they are second-class people and cannot cope with their highly intelligent weapons. So when the meat is over, then the war is over.

      The second one has damage to the cabin, it is unlikely that this is a breakdown of the air conditioner, most likely the arrival of something was nearby, so the cabin was cut and apparently the calculation. But 2 out of 18 this says a lot, especially the main barrel wear

    they have to be exported abroad, in particular to Poland, and this "reduces the combat capability" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    . The question is ... how quickly will they be repaired?

    I understand that. Any technique, incl. combat, wears out during operation and without combat operations. Especially in a war. For a long time to be serviceable can only be in storage, in conservation. Do Ukrainian servicemen and howitzer suppliers really not know this? Question - will the parts necessary for repair be given for money? Or, as they say to Odessa, "for free"? If you need to take it to France for repairs - at whose expense is the round-trip transportation?

    Remelting with new manufacture can also pass for repairs ... wink
    There was this story:
    "Ours pulled out the Mi-26 downed CH-47 Chinook, from some garbage dump in Afghanistan, then, our pilots asked the question -" For the money that you paid for the evacuation, you can buy a new one, but this one still needs to be restored, what for bullshit?"
    Mattresses replied - "We are aware, but different items of expenditure!" wassat
    With self-propelled guns, the situation is similar, and to admit losses, oh, how you don’t want to! smile

      Boeing announces the signing of a contract with the US Army for the supply of CH-47F Chinook Block 2 helicopters.
      It is indicated that a contract worth $ 136 million was concluded as part of the purchase of the first batch of four CH-47F Block 2 helicopters. The flying machines will be delivered to the US Army in 2023.


      And not bad, our pilots asked for a "chinook pull."
      At least $34 million

        How much, for example, will one insurance company ask for overboard? wink
        But, actually, I wrote that the bike, i.e. did not attend in person.
        But there are a little more than enough pictures of the CH-47 on the external load of the Mi-26 on the Internet wink

    Well, this should be a no brainer
    When there is war, the most profitable is the sale and resale of weapons.
    - Always, this weapon is already used
    - It often does not work and needs repair
    - It is superfluous for these countries and they are happy to shove it away saying - this is financial assistance, then give it back

    And the Ukrainians are happy)
    How Taiwan rejoices in a neighboring topic, the supply of anti-tank mines, which will be the last to be delivered by China to the island))

    Nothing strange. Each gun barrel has its own resource. The French designed their howitzer for a month of firing - then the French usually surrender. Ukrainians exceeded this limit. Not Newton's binomial.

    I don’t know how this Caesar is arranged there, but perhaps the only type of gun is the projectile transferred by the VFU whose projectile does not whistle in flight. Those. you won’t be able to guess the place where the projectile fell and, accordingly, you won’t have time to spread yourself on the ground. But the downside is the low survivability of the barrel, especially when shooting at extreme distances.

    Here's how to turn the whole thing with self-propelled guns, so that the French would still be guilty. And then feel free to ask for new ones

    The last one is the most important. Breakage - well, you can rub the boss that "it happened." But combat losses ... you can suffer a career for this. Money - bullshit, not their own, taxpayers. But the stars on shoulder straps are their own, relatives.

    After all, the French know that repairs need to be done, but they haven’t gotten out of bed yet, so lying in bed, under the covers, they want to win and rake in the money. Napoleon drilled them badly.
