This noon, the United States Embassy in kyiv has released a series of photos of the M-777 howitzers delivered by that country to Ukraine and that the Ukrainian Army has already put into action. These modern artillery systems are part of aid approved by the US a month ago, which included 18 155mm howitzers and 40,000 artillery shells, as well as 10 AN/TPQ-36 radars, used for counter-battery fire.
