The US Department of Defense shows how 155-mm M777 howitzers are loaded for shipment to Ukraine

On Twitter the US Department of Defense showed how 155-mm M777 howitzers are loaded for shipment to Ukraine on a board of C-17 Globemaster III aircraft.

It should be note, the Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby at a briefing on Wednesday, that the United States has already delivered to Ukraine most of the promised 90 155 mm howitzers, which will strengthen the Ukrainian Army’s defense capabilities.

The spokesman also noted that 50 Ukrainian military specialists trained to work on these howitzers have already completed their training routine and are returning to Ukraine as instructors to teach their comrades-in-arms to operate these artillery systems. It is expected that the training will continue.

As Defense Express reported earlier, in March the United States provided Ukraine with a large tranche of defense assistance, which included 18 M777 155mm howitzers. In April, the U.S. administration approved another large-scale aid package, which includes 72 American howitzers of the same type and hundreds of thousands of shells to them.
