The AFU is already using M982 Excalibur high-precision shells with M777A2 howitzers at the front (but this is not certain)

In July, it was reported that the [Updated] The Ukrainian Armed Forces for the first time showed in action the M777 howitzer with GPS, which can shoot high-precision shells M982 Excalibur and PGK M1156. It seems that they are already working at the battlefront.

What we known

Military analysts @UAWeapons published a video showing how the AFU destroyed two entrenched Russian KAMAZ-63501AT artillery trucks and a dugout with aimed fire.

Analysts cannot confirm that the M982 Excalibur was used in the video, but judging by the high accuracy, explosion pattern, strength and type of equipment (artillery trucks are usually located far away from front lines) it was guided artillery at long range.

Recall, Pentagon: New aid package will include high-precision shells that the U.S. has not sent to Ukraine before.
