EUA envía su más preciso proyectil de artillería a Ucrania

September 8, 2022 - El Pentágono ha enviado a Ucrania su más preciso proyectil de artillería, tel Excalibur M982 guiado por GPS, para ayudar a la defensa contra la invasión de Rusia. El proyectil tiene alcance de 40,5km y precisión dentro de dos metros del objetivo

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.
