Published footage of firing Excalibur shells from M777 howitzers

A video of the firing of an American M777 howitzer with M982 Excalibur shells in Ukraine appeared on the Web. As previously reported by the media, Kyiv received this ammunition a week ago.

Unlike standard 155mm projectiles used by NATO artillery pieces, Excalibur has a combined control system that allows them to hit targets with high accuracy, writes Military Review.

In addition, the Excalibur has a range of 57 kilometers, twice that of unguided projectiles for the M777.

Some experts note that Ukrainian troops are no longer using HIMARS missiles, but Excalibur shells to shell the Antonovsky Bridge and the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Station.

These munitions are used to destroy fortifications and armored vehicles, so the effectiveness of their use to destroy large infrastructure facilities raises questions, the newspaper notes.
