The media reported that Washington transferred to Ukraine a third of its stocks of Javelin and Stinger systems, and it could take up to 6 years to replenish stocks of 155-mm artillery shells.

According to the site American conservative. The United States has given Ukraine a third of its stocks of Javelin anti-tank systems and Stinger anti-aircraft systems, and it can take up to six years to replenish stocks of 155-mm artillery shells. Russia is not alone in wasting its ammunition on Ukraine.

The site notes that if all aid to Ukraine stops tomorrow, for example, it would take six years to produce enough 155mm shells to restore US stockpiles to pre-war levels. With a planned increase in production to 20 thousand shells per month.

Therefore, the US wants to more than quadruple production from 20,000 to 90,000 per month by 2025, but even with new production levels, it will take 11 months to bring stocks of 155mm shells to pre-war levels.

The website states that the United States sent a third of Javelin anti-tank missile systems, 8.5 thousand units, to Ukraine, despite the fact that their monthly production at the Raytheon and Lockheed Martin factories is 400 units.

Kyiv also received a third of the US stock of 1,600 Stinger man-portable air defense systems.

The site notes that the production capacity of Stinger missiles is worse than that of Javelin missiles.
