The UK bought and repaired more than 20 M109 self-propelled guns: now they are being sent to Ukraine

Great Britain continues to help Ukraine. This time the British bought weapons for us from a private Belgian company.

What is known

He spoke about this in an interview Sky News Defense Minister Ben Wallace. We are talking about more than 20 155 mm M109 self-propelled artillery mounts. By the way, the British not only bought them for us, but also repaired them. Self-propelled guns have already begun to be sent to Ukraine.

Recall that the M109 is an American self-propelled howitzer, which is in service with the US Army and other countries of the world. The M109 was first used in real combat during the Vietnam War, then it was used in almost all military conflicts in which the United States took part. It has a 155 mm caliber and a range of up to 30 km (depending on the type of projectile).
