- U.S. and NATO Scramble to Arm Ukraine and Refill Their Own Arsenals – New York Times
Last summer in the Donbas region, the Ukrainians were firing 6,000 to 7,000 artillery rounds each day, a senior NATO official said. The Russians were firing 40,000 to 50,000 rounds per day. By comparison, the United States produces only 15,000 rounds each month.
The shortage in 155-mm artillery shells âis probably the big one that has the planners most concerned,â Mr. Cancian said.
âIf you want to increase production capability of 155 shells,â he said, âitâs going to be probably four to five years before you start seeing them come out the other end.â
