The Armed Forces of Ukraine are now using the Archer 155 mm self-propelled artillery system on the battlefield, according to a video released by the Ground Forces Command on the occasion of the Day of Rocket Forces and Artillery of Ukraine. This is the first time the Archer system has been publicly showcased in Ukraine.

The video also shows that the 45th Separate Artillery Brigade has received the system. In late May, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced that Archer self-propelled artillery systems and trained crews would arrive in Ukraine during the summer, but there has been no public news about the system since then.

Despite the lack of public updates, the video confirms that Ukrainian forces have been actively using the Archer systems to strike enemy targets. The Archer is an advanced artillery system that can fire six rounds in 30 seconds, with a maximum range of 60 kilometers. It is also capable of firing guided munitions, which can strike targets with pinpoint accuracy.
