    Right so far !
    The statement is correct …. So far!

    But the PzH2000 is a lot more modern and ….

    Anyway… it's the same ammunition… and ultimately western technology…

    The Ukrainians simply need more ammunition!

    Simply that way….

  2. I had built the Italeri 1:35th-scale kit of the M109A6 Paladin U.S. Army 155mm Self-Propelled Howitzer. I had a second kit, along with Verlinden's comprehensive resin interior detail sets; however, I had not been able to complete the project when–well, when circumstances not of my causation and far beyond my capacity to resolve took my life into a truly terrible turn.
    I understand that the Army had uprated them to M109A7 status. How do the two variants differ, please, that one could modify the model kit to the newer version?

  3. It’s old. Sweden has the best mobile artillery unit. The U.S. needs a new mobile artillery system similar to what Sweden has. The paladin needs to be retired.

  4. Witnessing this first hand and knowing that artillery is king of battle and being in a artillery unit myself I can say it will be very effective if the gun bunnies are fast and accurate. The white phosphorus rounds are a controversy though. It's hard to say if they can actually use them because of their burning inhumane nature

  5. Fuck this shit. Hope Biden and his crack head son are making a lot of money off this scam of a war. I make about 100k a year still drive my first car I got back in 2005 have no dept and somehow am still pay check to paycheck. Wish my government would stop stealing money from me through inflation and sending it over seas for pointless war. They were gonna sign a peace deal before we got involved. Now a bunch of young men are dead, and the middle class is now the middle poor.
