[영상] “We have two days of German ammunition left”… NATO Arsenal depleted by long war

(Seoul = Yonhap News) British daily The Times reported on the 1st (local time) that NATO member countries, including Germany, which has supported Ukraine for 10 months since the start of the war, are running out of ammunition and other weapons of war.

According to reports, NATO member countries are currently short of almost all types of ammunition, including 155mm shells. In particular, in the case of 155 mm shells, as they are explosives necessary for weapons mainly used in Ukraine, such as the German self-propelled gun 2000 (PzH 2000) and the US howitzer M777, the lack supply inevitably leads to a weakening of the troops.

The NATO member with the biggest problems is Germany. The Times, citing experts, said the Germans appeared to have only two days’ ammunition left for a very intense ground fight.

In order to meet the conditions that NATO demands from member states, it is necessary to have enough ammunition to last for at least 30 days in land warfare, but Germany has not even ensured this.

NATO has so far supplied tens of millions of bullets and tens of thousands of rockets, but the Times pointed out that Ukrainian forces are running out of shells many times faster than NATO can produce.

As a result, there is an argument that “a new production plant must be built” among member countries such as Germany. However, The Times observed that this is not an easy plan to implement, given the dark economic situation such as high energy and raw material prices after the war. Let’s see it in the video.
