Unable to conduct counter-battery combat due to wear and tear, American M777 howitzers are removed from the Kupyansky direction

Unable to conduct counter-battery combat due to wear and tear, American M777 howitzers are removed from the Kupyansky directionArmed Forces withdraw artillery from Kremennaya, towed American howitzers from the 93rd separate brigade are sent to the rear. According to available information, the reason was the need for repairs due to increased wear, which in turn led to the impossibility of counter-battery combat.

According to the TG channel Military Chronicle, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to withdraw American M777 howitzers from near Kremennaya to the area of ​​​​the settlement of Stavki in the Kupyansky direction, incapable of counter-battery combat with Russian artillery. Most guns require immediate repair, due to wear and damage, the deflection of projectiles reaches its maximum values.

celebrated, that this is not the first time, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine face problems due to American howitzers, who just can't keep up with the pace of fire, because they are not fit for it.. Earlier, in the Krivoy Rog direction, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine urgently had to change the M777 to Soviet-style howitzers, since the shells were.

reportedly, in a fully functional M777, the deviation of the projectile from the target at a distance 25 km is 140 m, on 30 km – almost doubles to 275 m. And the worn ones have more 20-30%, which does not allow the use of these guns in counter-battery combat along with AN / TPQ-36 Firefinder radars, as the consumption of shells increases sharply.

The decrease in the accuracy of the M777 guns led to an increase in the consumption of ammunition five times: instead of 10-15 shots per target, the Ukrainian military spend at least 50- writes channel.

Instead of the American M777, Kyiv wants to get the Romanian M1981, which are a licensed copy of the Soviet D-20 caliber field howitzer 152 mm. However, they still need to be delivered to Ukraine. In the meantime, a slight decrease in the density of artillery fire from the Armed Forces of Ukraine is expected in the Kupyansk direction..
