Ukrainska Pravda: Ukrainian Army receives six top secret weapons monthly

Ukrainska Pravda: Ukrainian Army receives six top secret weapons monthly

Ukraine is sending six “Bohdana” self-propelled artillery guns, which are often called the country’s most mysterious military developments, to its armed forces each month, according to Ukrainska Pravda.

The manufacturers of “Bohdana” rarely discuss it, only sharing images of the weapon with analysts from open sources.

The Kramatorsk Heavy Machine Tool Building Plant, the producer of the self-propelled gun had to pass through bureaucracy, lawsuits from the Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, and loss of the production capacity in Russian missile strikes to finally finish the “Bohdana”.

The plant which has relocated its factories and restored its equipment is planning to boost production amid Russia’s attacks on east and south territories of Ukraine.

According to the developers, already dozens of “Bohdana”, the 155mm self-propelled guns have been sent to the front lines and none of them have been destroyed in battle. However, some of the weapons have been damaged and are currently undergoing a repair.

At least 25 enterprises and 400 people are involved in the serial production of the “Bohdana”, which costs twice as cheap as the French CAESAR self-propelled gun.
