France Might Change Policy for Artillery Shells

France Might Change Policy for Artillery Shells

Financial Times reports Macron stated that France would join an initiative of the Czech Republic to acquire artillery shells from non-EU states.
Politico previously reported that France and Greece have blocked the purchase of 155 mm shells for Ukraine from non-EU states. This move can be described as limiting in terms of supply and profit-centred as multiple non-EU states, such as Turkiye and the Republic of Korea (ROK), have a considerable manufacturing capacity for these shells.
The turn to be taken by France will allow for a larger quantity of shells to be supplied to Ukraine, widely using 155 mm artillery systems of various types in the war.
Ukraine’s own artillery systems and supplied SPGs have played an essential role in slowing down the Russian ground forces. European countries and the U.S. are also supplying the country in war with artillery shells to prevent ammunition shortage, a problem both sides have encountered from time to time.
