Original Message I imagine there is stockpile of ATACMS block 1 munitions that need to be used up. Also I imagine US has stock pile of aging F-16 cluster munitions to send

The Army TACMS Block I is a semi-ballistic missile with an APAM warhead that contains approximately 930 M-74 bomblets. There is 1 missile per guided missile and launching assembly and 2 missiles per launcher load. The missile will engage targets throughout the corps area of influence and is designed to destroy tactical missile launchers, suppress air defense, counter Command, Control, and Communications (C3) complexes and disrupt logistics.

Block I would be early aging variants.

The 155 MM shells are paving way for the aging munitions US has available to send to Ukraine.
