Snipex Alligator 14.5mm being employed:
Wonderfully detailed line by line item list of weapons the Pentagon is purchasing for Ukraine or to back fill weapons already sent to Ukraine:
Artilelry, HIMARS, Javelins, etc, right down to how much $ in artillery shell powder is being purchased.
However, due to my Milkor grenade launcher fetish, this stuck out the most to me. This suggests either a large number of Milkors have already been sent to Ukraine, and these are to replace them, or that the Milkors sent to Ukraine have proven sufficiently valuable that more will be sent. Curious how many Milkors can be bought for $5.26 Million.
Close quarters tank on tank kill; one of the rare documented tank fights of the war:
Pretty shocking, a single 40x53mm HEDP dropped from a quadcopter drone is able to ignite the ammo in the autoloader in a T80BV Tank. This really highlights just how vulnerable these tanks are to any sort of top mounted attack.

Um, so sorry to rain on your parade, but the Milkor is not the M320A1.
Damnit, my dreams are crushed. Good catch Stan.
I had confused it for the 'M32A1' which is the modern version of the Milkor.

A nice, pretty detailed look at HIMARS and how they are being employed:
U.S.-supplied Himars have played a key role in Ukraine's counteroffensive against Russia. WSJ's Stephen Kalin gained rare access to the mobile rocket launche...
This is less significant for Ukraine, but moreso a sign that the war is boosting EU defense production. Albeit in this case a pretty small project.
