Canada's Chief of Defense Staff says Russia is replenishing its ammunition stockpile at a faster rate than expected.

Russia is now demonstrating high rates of restocking of shells and other ammunition. This was stated by the Chief of Defense Staff of the Canadian Armed Forces, General Wayne Eyre. The Canadian military's words are quoted by Radio-Canada.

Although the Russian army has been conducting a special military operation for a year and a half, fighting with Ukrainian troops armed by the entire “collective West,” the Russian Armed Forces have not observed a “hunger” of shells. And this is increasingly worrying Western military leaders.



If we explore the possibility of resupplying ammunition in Russia, it is happening faster than expected

- said the Chief of the Defense Staff of the Canadian Armed Forces.

According to the Canadian press, since February 2022, no additional 155 mm ammunition has been produced in Canada itself. General Eyre admitted that if Canada suddenly had to spend shells at the same rate as the Ukrainian Armed Forces were spending them, then the entire stockpile would be exhausted in a few days.

It is in a deplorable state tank Canadian Forces Park. Not all tanks in service with the Canadian Army are actually combat-ready. Correcting the current situation is also extremely difficult due to the lack of spare parts for tanks, as well as the shortage of qualified technical specialists. As in many Western countries, things are pretty bad with military-technical specialists in Canada.

    Yeah, and if deliveries of weapons and military equipment from China, Iran and Korea begin, it will generally be just a New Year of some sort)))

      The supply of shells from other countries is a controversial issue. While Russia is at war and under sanctions, China is conquering the Russian market. And China does not benefit from a quick cessation of the operation. Over forty years of sanctions, Iran has adapted well to them and is quite capable of selling weapons. The question is, what will he get in return? Grain in exchange for missiles? The DPRK may exchange stocks of shells and ammunition in exchange for modern missiles and aircraft. But they seem to be under the umbrella of China. We really can help with energy resources. We ourselves can increase the production of shells!? Maybe.

    It’s no good thing for you to glorify this in parliament. I need to work, but I don’t seem to want to. It’s easier to bullshit by blaming Russia for everything.

    Make claims to your analysts in the intelligence services and military departments, who are trying to adjust Russia’s capabilities to their own, established over many years of resting on the laurels of “victory in the Cold War” and who do not at all take into account the experience of others who tried to “defeat” our country.

    Interesting times are coming in the West too. In order to return to the arms race now, they will have to make a well-fed and easy life.

    Firstly, bring back all production from China and Asia in order to control the entire chain of their production, which means hello to their ecology and green agenda.

    Secondly, reverse their entire sexual revolution (sounds good, by the way). Because we need a lot of healthy and psychologically strong soldiers.

    Third, change the structure of education. Because you need a lot of engineers, not creators and marketers.

    Will they be able to? Oh, I doubt it. Things have gone too far for them.

    Well, this is partially true for our country. But we are in a besieged fortress, we have nowhere to go, life is already forcing us

      Just the opposite. If they return to the arms race, it will be a big plus for their economy

        This will, first of all, be very difficult for them, because it will require a radical restructuring of the existing system with a possible deterioration in life and definitely a restriction of freedom.

        Why do you think they moved production from their countries to China if it is so useful for their economy? For one simple reason - it is more profitable. By the 70s, their profit margins had dropped significantly. When they removed production, they reduced costs by saving on labor costs, the environment, etc., while profits increased again.

        Bringing production back means lowering the profit rate. Because it will no longer be the Chinese who will have to pay, but again their Canadians, Americans and other Germans. Do you think corporations will reduce their profits? I'm sure not. How will they increase profits? Again saving on workers. Voila, their own workers will have a spoonful of fun...

          You have a problem with the logical chain.

          That is, their workers have become too expensive.

          When they took out production, they reduced costs by saving on labor costs

          By laying off your workers

          That is, by hiring them back :)))) For workers, this is very profitable.
          This is also beneficial for the state, which has to pay less unemployment benefits.

    What can Canada talk about, which has never fought a war, not counting the killing of Indians, and then under the leadership of toad-eaters?!!

    Why are you concerned about this question, hairless chief of staff of the KONADA abarons? All sorts of rubbish comes with its word, as if there are no other things to do. Winter is just around the corner, I should cut and chop some wood, otherwise Russia and its ammunition will be there!

    The tank fleet of the Canadian Armed Forces is also in a deplorable state. Not all tanks in service with the Canadian Army are actually combat-ready.


    Who is Canada going to fight off with tanks? Its only neighbors are the USA. Really? wassat

    Where was he going to spend power supply at such a pace? To shoot across the sea and oceans across the Russian Federation, or is it really exotic - to clash with the states for grizzly independence? ))))
