Ukraine's state-owned military enterprise Ukroboronprom is attempting to begin production of the 155 mm artillery shells, the company's spokesperson Natalia Sad said.
Ukroboronprom is building capacity to build NATO-caliber rounds as Ukraine's military is fielding a large number of Western artillery, using the 155 mm shells.
"We have mastered the production of 82 mm mortar mines, 122 mm, and 152 mm artillery rounds, as well as 125 mm tank shells. Today, the work on the 155 mm NATO caliber continues," Sad said.
She added that the military production giant brought the monthly production of various projectiles to tens of thousands, and the scale keeps growing.
Already in June 2022, the Armed Forces reported serious shortages of Soviet-era artillery shells, mainly 122 mm and 152 mm calibers.
As Kyiv began to receive Western artillery, it also created the need for NATO-standard ammunition.
