Canada To Supply Ukraine With GPS-Guided Artillery Rounds

Canada will supply Ukraine with M982 Excalibur extended range guided artillery rounds, CBC reported on April 23, citing Canadian defense sources.

The guided artillery rounds are a part of a military aid package that also includes four relatively new M-777 155 mm towed howitzers and an unspecified amount of unguided shells. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed the plan to ship what he called “heavy artillery” early on in the week, but didn’t elaborate.

“Their most recent ask was exactly for that, for heavy artillery, for reasons of operational security,” Trudeau said on Wednesday. “I can’t go into the details at this point on how and what we’re getting to them exactly.”

The M777 howitzer has a maximum rate of fire of seven rounds per minute with a range of up to 40 kilometers when firing Excalibur rounds. The howitzers that will be shipped to Ukraine will come from the 1st Regiment, Royal Canadian Horse Artillery. They are a part of 37 howitzers Canada purchased during the Afghan.

The Excalibur round, which was developed by BAE Systems and Raytheon, has a CEP [circular error probable] of less than 4 meters. This accuracy is achieved via guidance system built around a GPS-aided inertial navigation system. The guidance system dependence on GPS makes it vulnerable to jamming.

Each Excalibur round costs around about $112,000. The rounds that will be supplied to Ukrainian forces are also left over from the Afghan war.

The Canadian military aid package is a part of a broader Western efforts to rebuild the offensive capabilities of Ukrainian forces. So far, Western states have supplied or promised to supply Kiev with more than 200 different artillery pieces as follows:

  • Estonia: nine D-30 122 mm towed howitzers;
  • The US: 90 M777 155 mm towed howitzers;
  • Canada: Four howitzers M777 155 mm towed howitzers;
  • Czech: more than 20 DANA M1 and DANA M2 152 mm self-propelled howitzers;
  • Slovakia: 18 Zuzana 155 mm self-propelled howitzers;
  • Poland: more than 20 2S1 Gvozdika 122 mm self-propelled howitzers;
  • Netherlands: 24 Panzerhaubitze 2000 155 mm self-propelled howitzers;
  • France: 12 CAESAR 155 mm self-propelled howitzers;
  • Belgium: 24 M109A4BE 155 mm self-propelled howitzers.

The West attempt to rebuild the offensive capability of Kiev may be meant to help launch a counter-attack in the Donbass region, where the Russian military and the armed forces of Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic have been advancing for more than two months now.

Western-supplied artillery systems will not likely provide enough fire power to turn the table in favor of Kiev, even if they were all delivered successfully. The Russian military has been hunting down Western weapon shipments to Ukraine since the beginning of its special operation there with much success.

Ukrotard so sad! Putin! Putin! Putin! Meanwhile, Donbas is a memory for the failed Ukrainian CIA project, along with Crimea. Millions of refugees fleeing martial law and economic privation, tens of thousands of Ukrainian servicemen dead, tens of thousand more soon to die. It’s all Clyde’s fault, and I hate him, I hate him, I hate him! Where is that American Express Centurion card that Obama promised?

Ukrotard hate Clyde! So angry when Clyde make fun of massive Ukrotard losses! Meanwhile, Ukraine is winning by losing Donbas and Crimea. It’s a special, new-age kind of winning that can only be perceived on a spiritual level. Great job.

ukraine needs you in this dire situation it is facing. otherwise there won’t be ukraine in about 6 or 7 months. hope you join in the fine ukrainian army and give your best shot. it tooks about a month and half to put mariupol under control, where the best ukrainian troops fought with nato. going by a city per month for russia to take over, ukraine won’t exist in about 8 or 9 months.

I doubt Canada even has such systems. How long to get there, train, deploy? Canada is a Fascist state though. All those Ukrop Nazis fled to Canada after WWII. Canada’s Deputy PM is Nazi. In Canada, if you disagree with the government your bank account can be seized.

Because they’re too expensive to get blown up.

The Russians have destroyed several thousand Ukrainian AFVs. They knock the last vestiges of the Ukrainian Air Force from the sky at will. They pound the logistical nodes of the Ukrainian forces with missiles, from one end of the county to the other. Why not try a big old gulp of reality?

Slobodan

They are overkill. Their rounds would overpenetrate Ukrainian tanks. Armatas are for the war with NATO.

Because they don’t want to kill Ukies, just roust the Nazis. All the latest stuff including Armatas not needed for that.

How much help this shitty country needs and they’re still struggling. Couldn’t even keep Mariupol, will lose their whole army group in the Donbass soon.

Trudeau and Freeland Nazi Natostan connection. These Western psychopaths will take us to a much larger and deadlier situation. They are and have boots on the ground? They just want hundreds of thousands of US and Natostan troops and complete war. I hope the Sarmat II makes these war mongering idiot take pause, as just a couple of these in the US or Europe would be the end.

It’s difficult to believe anything a Western leader spouts. Liars, traiter, thiefs. DeSantis seems about the only common sense out of the US on any level. Leaders will support Putin because he is a diplomat first. It’s that or Biden regime and Natostan leaders and really nothing to support either crazy camps. 🤪 When you consider the type of CIA operations, NAZIS, biolabs and open war crimes by the thousands, the bad guys become blatantly obvious. Consider what Russia has done for Syria being invited there. The US and Natostan just trained Jihadists and fomented mass murder and still won’t leave Syria, as they behave , as criminal occupying forces. CIA quarterbacks training of these death squads in UKRAINE and Syria 🇸🇾. Still Russia 🇷🇺 protects and has changed the playing field completely in the Middle East. It’s really very sad for all to see watch the USA destroy, as it self destructs

True and thats why last real great American President Eisenhauer warned about it.

The Atlanticism described by Russian thinkers and geopolitics professors inside russia is truth because of every country aligned with the west (USA) is forced to collaborate to ukraine to project western power (USA) in the borders of Russia. Good luck on that NATO, maybe Russia will blow out your game in your face later in the next future.

How is RU’s technology for tracking such shells?

It seems like with a 40-50km range and Sat imagery the threat is significant and calls for extending Donbas buffer and security zone very far westward.

As days get warmer and clearer it may also unfortunately call for soot and smoke generators for obscuring live Sat imagery.
