Ukroboronprom working to set up production of NATO-type 155mm rounds

The state-run defense giant Ukroboronprom is developing capacities to manufacture 155-mm artillery projectiles, which is the standard for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

This was announced by company spokesperson Natalia Sad, who spoke at a briefing “Production of weapons and equipment for the needs of Ukraine’s Security and Defense Forces,” hosted by the Media Center Ukraine - Ukrinform.

"We have mastered the production of 82mm mortar mines, 122mm and 152mm artillery rounds, as well as 125-mm tank shells. Today, the work on the 155mm NATO caliber continues. We are learning to produce these munitions because it is no secret that the army is filled with artillery systems of this caliber. Therefore, it is a prospect for us to master its production," said the spokeswoman.

As reported earlier, Ukroboronprom and Germany’s Rheinmetall signed a strategic partnership agreement. The goal is to strengthen Ukraine’s defense industry and its national security by creating a joint venture.
