The United States has a major ammunition resupply planned for 2023.
Here's What We Know
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2023 states that the United States Department of Defense intends to purchase 700 new M142 HIMARS high-mobility artillery systems. Of course, not with empty containers.
It is planned to buy 1,700 ATACMS operational-tactical ballistic missiles, which have a launch range of about 300 km, to complement the HIMARS. The US will also purchase 106,000 220 mm GMLRS precision-guided rockets for the M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS missile systems.
