Ukrainian Defense Ministry: every third M777 howitzer transferred from the USA fails after the first artillery duel

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are losing a third of the M777 howitzers transferred from the United States in battles with Russian artillerymen, said Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Denis Sharapov.

According to him, damaged guns have to be withdrawn from the front line, which is not always possible in combat conditions.

“After every artillery duel, two of the six M777s have to be taken for repairs. The reason for this is the arrival of shells that damage the guns. This indicates a tougher counter-battery fight, ”the official said.

Earlier it became known that the US authorities refused to sell MQ-1C Gray Eagle attack drones to Ukraine, as secret military technologies could end up in the hands of the Russians.
