War in Ukraine
Samuel Cranny-Evans, a military analyst at the Royal United Services Institute think tank, said that the calibre was easier for Nato to support than the old Soviet-era 152mm calibre guns; ammunition for which was running low in the Ukrainian camp. He said that the impact of the new weaponry would depend upon the numbers they could field. “If they don’t have very many of them, it may not impact the war at all. Ukraine needs a lot of artillery, and soon, to reverse the tide of casualties that they are taking,” he said.
