Analysts noted that improved Russian and Chinese artillery systems and new methods of using them using UAVs for targeting, as well as the proliferation of special types of ammunition, raise concerns "about the potential impact of Russian and Chinese artillery on US military operations and ground combat systems."
According to experts, the United States is already working on modernizing its weapons, but the authors of the report, among other things, recommended that congressmen pay attention to the possibility of transferring American long-range systems abroad.
The Research Service explained that due to the limited range of precision-guided fire systems, the inability to ensure their deployment in other countries "may reduce or nullify their effectiveness."
"Given the importance of the deployment, Congress could look into ongoing efforts to secure the US Army's long-range precision fire systems in both Europe and the Indo-Pacific," analysts said.
Earlier, Washington decided to transfer HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine.
The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, in a commentary on this matter, noted that Russia will continue to "push the Nazis away from the line from which the threat to the Russian population of Ukraine and the Russian Federation comes."Keywords:
