Norway provided Ukraine with approximately 20 M109A3 ACS as part of the assistance
Self-propelled artillery systems M109A3, which Norway provided to the Armed Forces of Ukraine as military assistance, are already at the forefront.
This was announced by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, who also noted that Ukrainian artillerymen needed only a week of training to master new weapons. He also told about what really impressed our cannons.
“The key difference between these guns and Soviet models is that they are made for humans. “In the winter, when icing of the hull is possible, the developers slightly rubberized it so that the crew would not slip. The soldiers enjoyed even such simple elements as welded baskets for personal belongings on the edges of the tower,” said the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.
In addition, the quality of ammunition is much higher than the Soviet. For example, the charges are airtight, and most importantly completely identical to each other, which affects the accuracy of the spread of shots.
He also noted that the firing range of M 109A3 conventional shells is up to 22 km. But the firing range increases due to the use of active-jet projectiles.
It will be recalled that the Norwegian government decided to transfer the M109A3 in early April . And although the exact number is not officially named, it is about 20 units. And judging by only a few weeks it took to remove from storage, which involves deconservation of machines.
Interestingly, Ukrainian artillerymen were able to capture the M109A3 in just one week. At the same time, the Germans set aside 40 days to study at their PzH 2000 .
