Permalink Another country sends howitzers to Ukraine – report

Poland has donated 18 ‘Krab’ self-propelled guns to Kiev forces, according to local Radio.

In addition to donating the heavy artillery pieces, Polish military forces trained about 100 Ukrainian artillerymen to operate them, Polish Radio explained. The 155mm guns will provide the firepower for three artillery squadrons.

The Polish howitzers have already arrived in Ukraine, according to the report. Kiev also has received M777 155mm self-propelled howitzers from the US, as well as Harpoon anti-ship missiles from Denmark, Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexey Reznikov said on Saturday. France has donated its version of the 155mm self-propelled howitzer, called Caesar, providing six such systems to Ukraine. Like the M777 and the Caesar, the AHS KRAB is a NATO-standard howitzer with a maximum firing range of about 40 kilometers. It was designed in Poland for the Polish Army. The system operates with a five-man crew and can fire as many as six shells per minute. It’s built by Polish defense contractor Huta Stalowa Wola.
