Cargo aircraft with artillery and ammunition: Russian power against external aid to Ukraine

Kiev has to face operations to the south and east, sectors in which artillery plays a predominant role, due to the characteristics of the territory and because the Russians have always considered it a specialty: they are using it massively.

The images speak. They show M777 guns in cargo planes arriving from the United States, six pieces at a time, then the videos with the Ukrainian soldiers who received them. Unofficial sources claim that approx 90% of the 90 promised have already been delivered along with 90,000 bulletswhile the training continued by the Task Force Gator, composed of 160 members of the Florida National Guard who immediately before the invasion had been evacuated from the base of Yavoriv, ​​near Lviv, then bombed by the Russians, and who – revealed in the recent days Pentagon spokesman John Kirby – they have just reunited with their Ukrainian colleagues to resume their training: In total, 23,000 Ukrainians were trained in Yavoriv, ​​General Joseph Hilbert, commander of the 7th Army Training Command stationed in Grafenwhr, Bavaria, said yesterday.

Time is running out. Kiev faces operations to the south and east, sectors in which artillery plays a predominant roledue to the characteristics of the territory and because the Russians have always considered it a specialty: they are in fact using it massively to plow the positions of the resistance. They want to destroy well-built trenches, but also to break morale. The artillery allows in fact to strike from a distance, slowing down or destroying the enemy forces and at the same time allowing infantry and armored vehicles to advance. The Russians are therefore incessant in the shotsas they themselves tell in the official bulletins: only on Tuesday 400 sites were hit, says the Russian Defense.

From her, Moscow has the experience, the numbers, the power: artillery has been the heart of the Russian army since the times of the Empire,Economist. During the previous conflict in Donbass, his soldiers were able to act within 4 minutes from the moment the target was identified. That operation was indeed successful, too thanks to a vast arsenal. One of his Soviet-designed Smerch multiple launchers can reach 70 kilometers of room, a D-30 piece at 22, therefore the heavy vehicle-towed mortars (the Tyulpan) between 9 and 20 kilometers, the real self-propelled armored vehicles capable of reaching up to 30 kilometers. Batteries frame an area, men are assisted by drones and reconnaissance, then start hammering. They can continue for days, as long as they have enough stocks, but also a high-level logistics network: A single 155 mm bomb can weigh 50 kilograms.

Ukrainians are counting on outside help insteadsophisticated means arriving from NATO to counter enemy fire: if in the beginning small arms were sent, such as Javelins or Stingers, the allies then switched to heavier armaments. Now Kiev is asking – as always – to intensify shipments and to send the multiple rocket launcher system Himars, range of action between 200 and 300 kilometers, a devastating weapon against concentrations of troops and vehicles: being mobile, it shoots and moves quickly, evading enemy fire. On 7 February 2018 it was used by an American base in Syria against militiamen of the Assad regime: among them it was said that they were also present the mercenaries of Wagnerbut the presence of Russians has never been confirmed.

Zelensky also calls for anti-ship Harpoon missiles which – said the American Senator Jason Crow, returning from Kiev – would be fundamental for to safeguard food shipments and, consequently, the Ukrainian economy. The port of Odessa is in fact protected by mines that prevent exports of wheat and sunflower oil: once reliable defense systems have been obtained against amphibious attacks, the Russians could clean it up.

In addition to the United States, different countries have offered various types of means. Other M777s (radius about 40 kilometers) arrived from Canada, France sent the Caesars (by truck, 46 kilometers), then there are other self-propelled vehicles from NATO states (P2000), the Polish Gozdiks, the Czech 152 mm Dana, i Grad – the modern version of the katiuscia – always Polish, the 122 mm Estonian towed. An officer explained to the Washington Post from prefer self-propelled guns – such as the Paladin, range between 20 and 30 kilometers – over towed guns because they guarantee greater protection to the servants.

Defenders are also in dire need of discovery radars, however locate where the rain of fire comes from. Various assistance packages have been included in the various assistance packages. The drone-kamikaze will then be important, the Switchblades sent from the United States: Defenders can use them to hit vehicles, supply trucks, camps. Donations also include Gps or laser-guided bullets, which increase accuracy: the reserve available rule also applies to the respondents.
