    AFAIK, all or nearly all PHZ2000 spent the entire winter under maintenance or repairs.
    I highly doubt they would have put their most effective artillery directly into use, during the mud season.
    All probably hidden away somewhere for the counter offensive. If they have been trained on Archer, I assume we will see it in use now.
    Same goes for AS-90, also been delivered, but not seen in field duty yet.

    M109, M777 and Krab been used in Bakhmut, so of course we would see losses on those.
    Nothing different with usage on PHZ2000, just difficult to destroy those when they are in Poland.,

    A soldier on a battlefield having more trust in his enemy than in his camarades, how fucked up this is?

Which points to another possible issue :maybe the Ukr side simply had too few artillery platforms, is forced to overuse them from static positions and they are basically on a best guess relocation schedule (as in they guess when the rus will be able to target them and hope to move just before that time). That would mean they need more dakka. Which they need anyway.
    As I understand it, the M777 are assigned to their brigades' organic artillery battalions as are some Krabs. These are closer to the front so they can provide fire support in brigade units but it also makes them Lancet bait.

    The HIMARS, PzH2000, and CEASAR are assign to artillery brigades, so are selected for special missions, not everyday fire support.

    CEASAR, PzH2000, Krab and HIMARS should all be in the corps level arty brigades since they have the range.

    Plus, there are actual decoys of HIMARS being built and deployed unlike a towed M777.

    At least 2 videos from the winter/spring/still-cold-snow-on-ground videos from TERRA Ops have them directing for PzH and Ceasar ("working with the Frenchman today").
    777 are more common but rare, Krabs even less iirc. But its also likely they dont call it out or *beep* some out or just call it 155 which could be "anything".

    My gripe is that I still see 777 not properly grounded even if its gotten better. One reason could ofc be that you dont want to get it stuck if you indeed try to be somewhat mobile after firing.

    Not all 777s hits are complet lost. Strange thing, the shells didn't detonate.

    It is reported that we just trained and outfitted an entire Ukrainian mechanised brigade (3-5000 men) under the cover of Aurora 23.
    They have reportedly been given Swedish version of Leopard 2 (Stridsvagn 122), CV90, Archer and Sisu 6x6 along with the training.

    Guess our defence planners really want to know if our gear works.

    EDIT: im not gonna be surprised if half our air force ends up in Ukraine suddenly.

    Is it weird that I eagerly anticipate combat footage of Strv 122 and CV90s?

    It's a bit morbid tbh but it helps knowing that it's a cut and dry example of Russian imperialism that needs to be defeated.

    Strv 122 is just a Leo2A6.
    But the CV-90, I am truly excited to see reports of it slicing through Russian crap.
    And the Archer really needs some wartime exposure to get the orders it most likely deserves.

    None, first planes will come from European countries who are purchasing F-35 and later from National Guard retired F-16s.
    F-16C/D Block 50/52 is most common version.

    Anyone want to bet against that someone forgot to turn off the Link 16 system when they're delivered?

    I was looking for some insight what's going on in Russia, the Kremlin, the elites and the people. Found this article, main source is Tatiana Stanovaya.

    Does a population have informed consent when that population is not taught the inner workings of its monetary system, and then is drawn, all unknowing, into economic adventures?

    Ukraine will receive a total of 45 F-16 fighters, which, after modernization, will be provided by the Netherlands and Denmark.

    45 so far.
    More countries will join the F-16 fund.
    Norway still got some left that haven't been sold, these would be perfect as they have brake-chutes for landing on short runways.
