Warehouses around the world are running LOW on 155 mm artillery shells!
Top generals warn that allies — Canada included — are running dangerously low on artillery shells.

"I am very concerned about our ammunition stocks," said Eyre. "NATO high-readiness forces ask us to have what's called 30 days of supply.

"If we were to consume munitions [at] the same rate that we're seeing them [fired] in Ukraine, we would be out in some cases in days and it would take years to restock."

[link to www.cbc.ca (secure)]

In a rare admission, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has gone public about the reduction in the supply of artillery shells to Ukraine, telling reporters that deliveries of the munitions have "really slowed down."

The 155mm artillery shells are arguably the most important munition for Ukraine in its war with Russia.

Less than 50%

Ukraine is firing shells faster than can be supplied. Can Europe catch up?

Artillery has dominated the war in Ukraine. But nearly 18 months in, a significant gap still remains between the shells Ukraine wants and how fast European and American factories can supply them. And concerns are rising that Europe’s patchwork of arms manufacturers is ill-suited to meet these needs.

Less than 50%

Israel buys tens of thousands of 155mm shells as global demand jumps.

The $60 million deal with Israel's Elbit Systems comes months after the US reportedly pulled 155mm shells from pre-positioned stocks in Israel.

JERUSALEM — Israel’s Ministry of Defense is procuring $60 million-worth of 155mm artillery shells, in a deal meant to shore up Jerusalem’s access to the shells that have proved crucial to the fight in Ukraine.

The deal with Israel’s Elbit Systems, announced July 31, comes months after the US reportedly removed some 300,000 155mm shells from stocks in Israel to give to Kyiv — stocks that are owned by the US but positioned in Israel and can be accessed by the Israeli military in case of emergencies.

Less than 50%

Russia is buying back 100 war helicopter engines.

Moscow is asking for the return of more than a hundred previously sold engines from Egypt, Pakistan, Belarus, and Brazil.

Sources told The Wall Street Journal that when the Russian army lost dozens of helicopters at the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, Russia turned to Egypt for help.

Satellite Images Suggest Russia Is Ramping Up Production Capacity For Its War Against Ukraine.

An analysis of satellite images by Schemes, RFE/RL's Ukrainian investigative unit, suggests that Russia is actively building up its capacity for weapons production and developing new factories as its full-scale invasion of Ukraine enters its 21st month with no sign of an end in sight.

From warplanes to combat helicopters to military drones and guided munitions, the facilities are a mix of state-run military factories, public-private partnerships, and civilian-operated dual-use enterprises that manufacture and repair equipment and ammunition for Moscow’s grinding war effort.

Saw a video yesterday of a few dead pretty Ukrainian Girls in military uniforms.

It is really sad these poor women have died for nothing.

Obviously one has to be careful what they say. It appears to me though both Putin/Zelensky are far from enemies as they both continually feed the Meat grinder with brainwashed white people dying for....

I did quite a bit of research into this claim and this is what found out.

The US drove down the price of oil in the early nineties and bankrupted Russia. Then they took advantage of the president and robbed the place blind.

Then Russia by stealth elected Putin the head of the KGB under its new name. He was trained as a lawyer and joined the KGB spending most of his time in East Berlin. He speaks fluent German.

The WEF clowns then sucked up to him and tried to hood wink him into becoming one of them but Putin was a traitor and now they are pissed.

So, no, I don't believe he is a WEF team player.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 86366442



Obviously the US would retain enough supplies for its own future war usage. Whatever that number is. The point is that the minimum supply has been reached, so no more 155 shipments to Ukraine are happening. And our replenishment rate is very slow, so it will be YEARS before stocks are replenished.

155 mm is the important artillery round, because it has the longer range. Running out of 155 in a war like this is devastating.

Putin placed Russia in "Wartime production mode" for missiles and all other war production over a year ago I think it was. So they are making long range missiles at a decent rate that allows them to fire 100 or so a month in deep attacks. And they had just immense inventory of artillery shells that between that and their current production, they could keep this war going indefinitely.

This has become a war of attrition, and Russia is not going to run out of munitions. And the other aspect has been economic war. Which economy can hang in this mode the longest? Russia or the US? I know you are probably enjoying this shit economy, but it is pretty bad when an affluent area like I live in is selling Thanksgiving "Half pies". Literally half a damned pie for around $10. I've never seen that before. Pies have been sold whole my entire life. Now you get half a pie.

The West has hit the point where Zelenski not getting the critical supplies needed, so it should be just about over.

Predicting when exactly is impossible, but it has got to be getting close.

Also, your arguing tactics make you appear to be borderline retarded.
