US senden ihre präzisesten Artilleriegeschosse in die Ukraine

September 8, 2022 - Das Pentagon hat der Ukraine seine präzisesten Artilleriegeschosse geliefert, die GPS-geführte M982 Excalibur, um bei der Verteidigung gegen die russische Invasion zu helfen. Die Granate hat eine Reichweite von 40,5km und trifft mit höchstens zwei Metern Abstand ihr Ziel.

A plan to replenish the U.S. stock of Excaliburs acknowledges for the first time that the Pentagon has been supplying Ukrainian forces with the shell, according to Bloomberg.

Used in 155mm howitzers –- the Army’s workhorse field artillery – the projectile was co-developed by Raytheon Missiles and Defense and BAE Systems Bofor. The precision-guided Excalibur lets battlefield commanders zero in on targets more precisely, Bloomberg said.
