Colonel Serhiy Baranov, acting head of the Combat Strike Systems Department of the AFU General Staff, explained how the missile forces and artillery were transformed.

He said this at a briefing at the Military Media Centre.

According to Baranov, improvements have been made in several areas. In particular:

  • developed missile and artillery armament;
  • developed command and control systems;
  • training systems and approaches have been changed.

He stressed that instructors with combat experience are involved.

Ukrainian industry is also being actively involved to improve the guns.

We are adding the necessary sensors, adding a navigation system to the guns to make sure every shot is on target," said the head of the department.

According to Baranov, the Ukrainian army is still partially using artillery samples developed back in the Soviet era.

However, he noted that progress is being achieved through the training of personnel, application of new software products, introduction of an automated fire control system. Thanks to this, Ukrainian artillerymen have reduced the time spent by their units in the areas of firing positions, increased the accuracy of identifying enemy installations and improved the accuracy of fire.

We are doing everything to make the enemy end this war on our terms and so that they no longer have any desire to fight against Ukraine," Serhiy Baranov said.
