The German concern Rheinmetall promised to supply Kyiv with 300 thousand shells for the Gepard ZSU

Ukrainian self-propelled anti-aircraft guns Gepard, transferred to Kyiv by Germany last year, did not remain long without the required amount of ammunition. According to the head of the Rheinmetall concern, Armin Papperger, Germany will provide Ukraine with shells for anti-aircraft guns.

Germany will supply Kyiv with 300 35X228mm ammunition for 35mm Oerlikon GDF automatic guns armed with Gepard 1A2 SPAAGs. True, there is one caveat - the shells will be delivered in the middle of 2024. Now Rheinmetall is producing the first batch of ammunition, it should be ready in June-July this year.



We will complete the production of the first batch of ammunition in June-July. By the middle of next year, we will deliver 300 ammunition to Ukraine. This is a lot, so let's hope that the Ukrainian problem of ammunition for Gepard will be resolved

Pappenger said.

To date, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are armed with 30 Gepard anti-aircraft guns, transferred by Germany last year. Berlin promised to deliver 7 more SPAAGs and approximately 30 ammunition in December 2022. Earlier, Germany wanted to transfer Swiss-made ammunition to Ukraine, but Bern imposed a ban on the transfer of 35-mm ammunition for the Gepard ZSU to Kyiv. Later, the Germans found an independent manufacturer in Norway who agreed to supply the requested number of 35X228 mm shells for the 35 mm Oerlikon GDF automatic guns, but never received the required number of shells.

ZSU Gepard 1A2 has a firing range of up to 5 km, and in height - up to 4 km, the radar detects targets at a distance of up to 18 km. At present, the bulk of the Gepard ZSU is located in the Odessa region, where the installations cover the "grain deal ships."

    Very prompt. To summer. They haven't put them on yet. And the Bundeswehr is not given from storage. Here is a pidtrimka so a pidtrimka. There are installations, but there is nothing to shoot with. Creative in European way...

      "I am tormented by vague doubts" ... what kind of "producing shells" is this for the Cheetah? Rheinmetall does not have this, the Swiss produced ammunition, this was the problem: the Germans then gave Zushki, and the Swiss forbade the Germans to transfer their ammunition to dill, and the German-made "substitutes" - obliquely cut and did not coordinate with the guidance system, thrashed into milk, the automation mowed past. As a result, some of the necessary shells were purchased from Brazilians like (they were in warehouses and the Swiss were not asked there, tea is not Europe), but they ended in a moment, yet 550 rounds per minute very quickly shoot out everything available. So even by the summer, deliveries by the Germans are just an excuse, until the summer "only a few" dill will survive and there may be no one to supply. And deploy your own production of shells for installations 1973-1976 onwards. - Does the Germans need it?

      Why count them, the blood will spoil this important thing. In fact, this is the only weapon that can somehow fight Geraniums.

          Yes, and helicopters with attack aircraft will not be happy either. And their consumption for 1 target is about 150 shells at max range.

    Well, i.e. no one shoots at the sea anymore ???
    Do they expect that in the year 24 the NWO will still continue? But what about the presidential elections?
    And who pays for 300 thousand shells of 35mm caliber?

    Well, we can’t directly destroy factories, of course, but can sabotage be organized? It is absolutely all the same whether they accuse us or not, from the word at all. For all so-called. civilized to arrange, explosions, fires, etc. They declared war on us, what to expect...

    The heat has gone. Not armor or helmets, and not even javelins, and not even howitzers or chimeras. and not even cheetahs. Tanks, helicopters. Then there will DEFINITELY be planes and missiles. What do we have ? Have a plan? Or is it the one that Gorbachev inherited with Boriska? "Partners", obse-pase-hugs, "fraternal peoples" and money to the Chubais-immalo? Well, well .... And most importantly - the system. The state system is now designed not for creation (imports or the military-industrial complex or just chips) - but for the "development of the budget" by Moscow. The result - as a particular, in our deplorable provision of the army, which rests solely on the patriotism of the periphery. There is a managerial crisis. Dead end .

    Barrel rate of fire 550 rounds per minute, armed with 30 pcs. 9 minutes of shooting per installation. Not thick but annoying

      Considering that it takes about 1 shells to hit 150 target with a maximum range. That is about 2.000 targets.

    30 years ago I saw Shilka 23-4 in combat mode, the crew started the turbine and left, roaring loudly, and Shilka herself turned the tower, catching her friend or foe, she missed the helicopters with the general as her own, can the Nazi Cheetah do that too?
