While Washington has promised to send almost $30 billion in military aid to Ukraine, as well as to replenish its own reserves, so far the Pentagon has signed contracts for less than $10 billion, the Wall Street Journal estimates.
At the same time, new large contracts have not yet led to a boom among Pentagon military contractors who are facing failures in the supply chain, a tough labor market and the arms procurement process, which can stretch for years.
Lockheed Martin Corp., one the world’s largest defense companies, who produces Javelin anti-tank missiles and HIMARS rocket launchers, claimed that it expects annual sales to decline for the second year in a row. Lockheed’s partner, Raytheon Technologies Corp., does not expect a sharp increase in sales until 2024 as well.
The US defense sector is down around 6% so far this year, underperforming the broader stock market by 12 percentage points.
A big problem for American arms manufacturers is the gap between the Pentagon’s statements about the amount of military assistance to Ukraine and how much it actually spends on buying new weapons from defense companies.
The high rates of ammunition consumption also came as a surprise to the US military productions, the WSJ writes.
By December, Ukraine had spent as many Stinger missiles as the United States had produced in 13 years, as well as missiles for Javelin complexes manufactured in 5 years, the Wall Street Journal writes.
US defense enterprises are trying to cope with orders, overcoming problems with a shortage of labor and production difficulties, which resulted from the need to expand production quickly.
Earlier, US Navy Secretary Carlos del Toro warned that prolonging the conflict in Ukraine for six months or a year would pose a threat to the supply chains of the US military-industrial complex.
Already in mid-November, CNN, citing sources, reported on the depletion of stocks of some types of weapons and ammunition in the US army. Including 155-mm artillery ammunition and portable anti—aircraft systems Stinger, anti-radar missiles HARM, surface-to-surface missiles GMLRS and portable anti-tank systems Javelin.
I get 10% on all US weapons sent to Ukraine, my name is Joe aka Pedo Peter
The wars have been a business for the U.S. in 1 way or another. While you think it’s all about the deceitful liberals, the simpleton conservatives have been doing the same, go to check how much they have made from Iraq and Afghanistan. Keywords, Cheney and his war company Halliburton, for example.
Both parties just serve the elites, corporations and the Military Industrial Complex. Beyond that, the intention of the West is trying to destroy Russia, because they have become a super power again, they have a lot resources and unique ones, too, the West always hated RU and RU is not aligned with the economic system of the west nor their style of subjugating other nations. For similar reasons they also hate China. How the West got more of their money and power? By sabotaging, dominating, destroying and stealing from other countries. Anyone not in line or which tries to create a different system, the West gives them “democracy” in a “civilized” way.
Its like that for all weapon producers. USA is just the biggest one.
As usual some “pomme frittes” or whatever try to decide what people in USA already has voted for many times. Our countries are not like that.
And there we go again: ELITE and West. The Russian museum has spoken and lied again.
Russia was a nobody even big in the inland and no problem.
Typical comment. The rest is organized in exact same ways and in the sockmarkets as well.
By that we have a raised livingstandard and age.
Elite as word makes no sense. Its old days just as Your neon colonialisme nazis and jews.
It must be in alcohol
My heart bleeds for these fat Porkers!
Very old marrige joke from UK. Carrie You over the doorstep. My name is Simpson and not Samson.
They can’t even figure out how to provide baby formula. https://www.wsj.com/articles/fda-proposes-revamp-in-wake-of-baby-formula-shortage-11675184759
the bureaucrats shut the biggest plant down over some minor safety violation, lol
I am with bureaucrats this time. They are basically banning baby formula. Baby formula makes children dumb by 1 standard deviation. Bitches should feed their babies with breast milk.
I’ve a better idea, douche bags like yourself should be sterilized.
You are right but many cant and its also dor practical matters making a bottle or two for when the women are working.
Here in Denmark we only has very good replacements for babymilk. Its under govermenthal restrictions and control.
Its not that difficult. We only have 6 to 10 producers and some are all over the world. By that many controlers are not needed.
Thats how we often do here too. Sometimes You only see the top.
Thats the bad side of promotion.
We see many of that kind of examples. More govermenthal control is needed. More punishments might do it as well.
The procurement process is lengthy to allow maximal kickbacks. The supply chain has gone to China. The labour force is drunk, stoned and homeless.
Typical comment from a highly censured place.
USA is still in the top as producer and spender. They seemes to decline some. They need important reforms to decline less or something.
We know the Russian maintain. When a tire has no air, they just buy another car.
russia is in the Ukrainian Cauldron, a trap USA set for the Orcs, they’ve lost 50,000 soldiers and are ready for slaughter… heheheh
How about those Ukrainians, fuck-o?
Ukras has no problems. They borrow, get and lend. They do produce somethingthemlsef too. In the world perspective we can more then feed several countries of that seize – if we choose to.
Better to be thought of as an Ass than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt. That’s you, moron.
He try to copy Zelinsky pretending he is Putin.
If You open Your mouth enough none might no see, there is no brain behind it.
Can you confirm The sun’s reports That Ukraine is using some kind of death ray on Russian troops They have shown Pictures
The Sun is Rupert Murdoch’s comic that masquerades as a newspaper, treat it like a comic.
This is no childcarecenter. Why dont You look up Yourself.
Very much as You are from a country where none learn to learn.
Well the objective is to bleed the Russians and not bleed ourselves while trying to exhaust the Russians, besides the Americans announcing they would send tanks was just a Publicity Stunt, so that the Germans could send their Leopard Tanks, because the Germans said they wouldn’t not send any tanks unless the U.S. did.
It’s backfiring on them like everything else has. These fucking neocon are big on war but short on functioning brain cells, all of this should have been thought out beforehand.
I meet by need for eggs and diapers by going to Tijuana
if this report is correct it begs the question ,”how those who oppose sending more arms to Kiev without more oversight expect to carry out the same policy of confrontation and agitation against China?”
To add insult to injury, last May the Pentagon tried to order more Stinger missiles from Raytheon. Raytheon said “No Can Do” and the Pentagon ask “Why Not?”. Raytheon told the Pentagon “Because you canceled the Stringer contract in 2008 and the production facility was shutdown.”. Planning, Oversight and knowing what assets are at their disposal is not the pentagon’s forte.
Thats correct. Things are both ways. If You just leave for good or bad resons it happens like that. No companies maintain their production facilities and still pey the employed to do nothing.
As this it could make sense to maintain at least as small production line.
I have that for the F16s. The shutdown was big mistake. The best new D16s are jus as good as most Russian airplanes and chines one too. So why buy the F35s. By that we could efford many more missiles and drones as well.
You must be blind about it.
Fx USA want us to arm Ourselves more and better in Europe.
A headline today is about a new USA base or a regained one in the Philipines.
Himars have been the deadliest weapon Ukraine has used on Russia we forgetting the most recent himars missile that killed over 70 Russian soilders you even did the report yourself
Western industry has been moving from volume & effectiveness to margin & “bling” for a good while now. It’s bad enough for consumer goods, but when it comes to war, it’s downright disastrous.
Both things are highly incorrect.
Its very much about warfare has cjanged a lot to something else, which also is much more expensive and by that produced in limited numbers, when enough are stored and ready.
Here You of course ignore, You as cirkus clown in rustican support not even has met Nato.
I partly can agree in th consumer part. But we do produce more good stuff then ever before as well. Our life now is more then basics. Unfortunatly its a big waste as well.
The Russian Army is the best https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FqlDtdyAo3M
Let’s see zelensky in that russian courtroom, then talk about who needs what. Been some deeply criminal stuff gone on in the ukraine for many years and some people that need to talk to a judge in formal hearing, the kind where you could go to prison for life. Russia will have their work cut out for them cleaning this up but the day will come when all cards are on the table internationally and guilty parties get identified and dealt with
Russia has no sober courts.
But I agree about the crime. Thye were a complet part of USSR in those matters. It has not been replaced as it should. Now Zelinsky and the Dumaparts try again.
None here in west want to affiliate with something like that.
It’s obvious the US and West walked into this quagmire blindly and didn’t think it through
“Every war is easy to start, but it is extremely difficult to finish.” Sallustius,
Thats a relative. So far Russia even after at least two years of preparation has not removed all those Nazi look a likes” within a month.
Still no Putin statues and urrahs from the citicens living there.
You mail Your solutions, so the rest of the world can make some peace there or a country with no inhabitants.
Hunting Leos by Babystrollers, 20kgs TNT and the Leo is to Scrap!
Your knowledge is worse then that.
We see forward to the flocks of Armatas and will take oicures. Most likely Rusia only has one and has phoshopped it into many.
We got plenty of heroin though.
That might be a solution to give all which makes war a lot of heroin.
”Până în decembrie, Ucraina a cheltuit atâtea rachete Stinger câte au produs Statele Unite în 13 ani, precum și rachete pentru complexele Javelin fabricate în 5 ani, scrie Wall Street Journal.” Asta inseamna ca ukraina este cel mai bun vanzator de arme ale americanilor ???
Good, about time the US saw they were biting off more then they can chew.
Western Nazi elites, now lead by the U.S. are losing again. Their supremacist brains can’t cope with the fact that they’re actually not superior than anybody else, if they managed to subjugate many nations in the past, it is because many countries used to be awfully fools to believe in their rhetoric of “freedom and democracy”, other just got intimidated by the aggressiveness of the Western countries. Now they didn’t comply with those requests, the West didn’t manage to isolate and ruin the economy of Russia and RU also worked to depend mainly on themselves.
Many EU countries don’t even have many natural resources, for the supremacists out there, what do you think it will happen, if the rest of the world stops working with Europe? What the U.S. would do if they didn’t buy and steal the oil from other countries? Similar to the guy that woke up thinking he’s better than everybody else, because he born in X place, the West would be nothing without the rest of the world.
Hah, no. That would be giving too much credit to the CAUKUS. The subjugation was due to fossil fuels. The UK had surface coal in the 19th century, where other countries had none. The US has 25% of all coal where other countries have none. The reason why this is changing is because coal is losing it’s importance while natural gas, solar power and to a lesser extend wind power have been making gains. Russia has the most natural gas in the world and China after using up their smaller coal deposits is now taking the lead in solar, while importing Russia’s gas.
At least someone here understand something. Thank You.
There we go again. You are in the old days according the world and its productions.
The base is not even nature ressurces but what we make them into by world trade.
You easy show why Rustican lovers understand nothing. You dont learn anything and even are biased and censured hard.
You even supoorting it helping to create Your own darkness darker.
Explaning things to You is a waste just like trying to talk with my TV.
German foreign minister: ‘We are fighting a war against Russia’ Baerbock has publicly declared ‘a war against Russia’
Yes, we are made into sliding by Putin and try to be a show stopper. Its difficult to keep Minsk2 as any kind of option.
to mark the anniversary of Russia sending its armed forces into Ukraine on February 24, Germany planning big provocations in front of the Russian embessy at 24th February and in front of the other Russian embassies also in new york too
Thats legal demonstrations by their constitution guarded by the police for protection.
Its no provocation to tell what we hink about Russia in those matters. Im so proud they and we do.
Here we name it as free speech, which is an almost unknown vital, which hardly exist in Russia according Meduza and Facebook.
Its exact the same for those silly Khoran burnings and only a doll named Erdogan with the head uoside down.
WWIII is already here, USA dont want to collapse and needed this war so badly, he will go to the last Russian redline to create WWIII…. nice to meet you everyone.
You have been in the freezer for some time. it is IV.
US is a war economy
There are much more in their economy then military war.
Sure. They and we will sollpase next week too. Hard times.
One thing which is true is, that the rest of us in Nato and neutral countries as Sweden and Switzeland produce more end more as replacments for the american productions.
Kapitalisme works: When You can get cheeper and even sometimes better, You buy from there.
Other probælems for Ukraine fx is no factories for the old russian 125 mm artillery grenades. Soon they might be worth nothing. By that Ukras might need more then hoped and expected for.
