if the Russians don't swap barrels apparently their arty is about to be shot out - how important is that loss of precision going to be? Given that they use it as an area weapon anyway?

Haven't some of the aid packages have 105 howitzers in the mix? Countries getting rid of gear they don't use.

eeks, what would you use 105s for? Fire and wait for c/b?? The range is horrifyingly short.

Training?
Deployment in secondary or tertiarry theatres to free more potent weapons for the main theatre?

Don't forget, a 105mm howitzer is better than no howitzer.

I am aware that U S weapons have been sent....I  am also aware that "more is needed " ....I will post want I wanted to clarify, in the 60' surplus offers Colt 45's for $ 20 bucks....I did not luck out on this offer. I understand that early Colt's had sleeved ballels...the bearing fix was a lmprovent.  I have not forgotten one of my biggest faux pas.  At 80 plus I have many more  memories  that I cannot recall. I am a South pas and I remember that day as a teen how that checked grip felt and the kick of that "Colt".

GTA Ukraine , atempted snatching a BMP under fire

Meanwhile in Russia, they seem to be sending train loads of old BTS-4 recovery vehicles to the the front , like Soviet Military before it Russians never fielded numbers of armored recovery vehicles to match the size of its armored forces . Hence all the stuck and abandoned vehicles . BTS-4 is also quite limited in power vs never Brem recovery vehicles as its based on a T55 tank
