Bet on artillery: the Russian Armed Forces spend at least 20 thousand large-caliber shells daily

Russia during the special operation noticeably surpasses the Ukrainian side in the intensity of the use of artillery and other weapons. This, in particular, is stated in the report of the British analytical center for defense issues - the Royal United Institute for Defense Studies (RUSI).

Thus, according to the conclusions of British experts, Russian units daily spend about 20 thousand large-caliber shells against 6 thousand from the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Even more RF Armed Forces use ammunition for MLRS and other missiles. Thus, the Russian army placed high stakes on artillery. Western analysts believe that this can be influenced by strikes against Russian logistics facilities with the help of long-range HIMARS complexes, the supply of which is proposed to be increased.

According to the British, the supply chains of the Russian Armed Forces ammunition are vulnerable, since Russia uses large weapons depots, which are poorly protected and are good targets for Ukrainian artillery.

Along with this, the report refutes the opinion of the American military department that Russian missiles allegedly rarely hit the target and often fall in open areas. Washington's notions about the imminent depletion of Moscow's missile arsenals were also erroneous.

In addition, British experts conclude that Russian aviation is highly effective in the fight against MANPADS with a thermal guidance head of the Igla or Stinger type. Therefore, the authors of the report believe that it is necessary to increase the supply of missile systems with visual laser guidance of the LMM Martlet and Starstreak types to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Some kind of nonsense ... Well, of course, if the calculation is based on the thesis of 6,000 shells fired by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then yes ... But does the Armed Forces fire 6,000 shells daily or is this a cover for cutting the budget? Well, with such a picture, it is clear that the shells of the RF Armed Forces should end tomorrow ... In short, it looks very much like getting along ..

    It turns out 14 shells per minute without a break for lunch and sleep. One fortification is probably enough to destroy. Why so many fortifications?

      It depends on how many trunks to divide ....
      If per thousand, then 0,84 shells per barrel per hour ...

      It all depends on the conditions of accuracy, to whom 5 shells hit the target, to whom 25 shells are not enough due to the lack of spotters ... So far, Chinese civilian quadrocopters mainly use (rescue) the promised UAVs from the RF Ministry of Defense when they arrive in large numbers, the question is unanswered, waiting for the promise...

    daily spend about 20 thousand large-caliber shells

    Learn everything in comparison, compare yourself with others. When compared with the Second World War, it turns out that we do not know how to fight at all. And our commanders with purchased education. The film "Liberation. Breakthrough" is a scene where the generals discuss how they will break through the defenses of the Nazis. On a front width of 12 km., 150 guns were installed per km. Then they decided 300 guns per km. front. Now let's take the bare minimum. One gun makes 6-8 rounds per minute. -360 per hour. One hundred guns need 36 thousand shells for one hour !!!! This is how the defense in one sector of the front was broken through. And there is also front-line aviation. And now 20 thousand shells on the entire front! So we will fight until the second flood!

      If 1000 Nazis are destroyed per day, and the remaining 19000 where are they shooting?

    Well, where are the radical measures of the Russian leadership to severely suppress the supply of Western weapons to the Ukronazis ??
