Where did Iranian artillery ammunition come from in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine?


In social networks, footage of the unpacking of Iranian 122-mm OF-462 shells produced this year by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is increasingly appearing. A natural question arises about the origin of these weapons in Ukraine.


Earlier, a version was expressed about the US seizure of Iranian ships with ammunition on board and the subsequent transfer of ammunition to the Ukrainian side. However, recently the Americans have not carried out such operations. Similar shells were not delivered to Yemen either.

In this case, the most likely option is the supply of weapons from Iran to Ukraine through third countries. In this regard, the question of Tehran's participation in such transactions remains unclear and whether the Iranians were aware of who this year could need artillery ammunition in large quantities.



The day before, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz agreed with Joseph Biden to send weapons to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Berlin in this case has committed itself to the supply of air defense systems and artillery. At the same time, in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, the chancellor stressed the need to provide military assistance to Kyiv, but at the same time spoke of his unwillingness to allow a direct conflict between NATO and Russia.

Earlier, sources reported on the transfer of German radar systems to Ukraine to combat Russian artillery.

    Not relevant question No.

    Right to ask:

    How does ammunition get to the front line?

    In what ways? Is it not on a properly functioning railway network ???

      The railway network must be operational in order to transport goods to and from the EU through it. The Ukrainians themselves will blow it up when the RF Armed Forces approach them so that the enemy does not get it. Also with bridges. Russia does not bomb them, but they blow up the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the retreat.
      Historians will then wonder for a long time - what kind of military tactics is this?

        On this occasion, the TG channel "Military Informant" writes:

        In addition to all this, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not leave attempts to cut off our grouping of troops beyond the Dnieper in the Kherson region, this is how the bridge across the Kakovskaya hydroelectric power station looks now.

        Bridges in the controlled territory of Ukraine, for some reason unclear to everyone, are still not even trying to be put out of action.

        This is Gerasimov's new tactic, at the level of commanding a company in defense.

    Have come
    In the videos on our websites, the Armed Forces of Ukraine write "glory ..."
    but everything else is clear.
    Money doesn't smell. Capitalism is in the yard ... And the Arab systems are partially compatible with the old Soviet ones ...

    - Yes, what is there ... here ... here to dissemble and try to "bewilder"! - Iranian ammunition - this year of release (2022); most likely they were already made at the time when the VZO was already underway in Ukraine! - And delivered from Iran - specifically for the Armed Forces of Ukraine! - Where and who else will shoot such shells - Libya, Syria, Egypt, Africa, Moldova, etc. ??? - Yes, it's just funny!
    - In the subject:

    OPEC+ forces India to buy Russian oil

    - Personally, I already wrote today:

    - Oh, what "faithful" and "devoted" Russia has "friends" and "partners"!
    - Do not have a hundred rubles (or rupees) - but have Russia as a friend (although the word "to have" is logical and "double meaning") !!!

    - True - there is about India; but what's the difference = this is true for "all other friends" too! - The way it is !!!

    Primitive CIA propaganda operation with ammunition from Iran for IEDs. It is clear what it is aimed at - to sow discord between the Russian Federation and Iran. Who and where filmed the facts, especially with one single box for one charge and one little man -. I wish they showed hundreds of boxes and dozens of servants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but there are none and cannot be ....

    As far as I remember from my old studies, OF-462 is a projectile for Soviet 122-mm D-30 howitzers and self-propelled 2S1. Did the USSR sell them to Iran too?
