    an automatic translation works if you know what you're doing for instance
    金額(億円) = Amount (100 million yen)
    846 means $795.9m for that six F-35Bs (the difference in the last digit from Today at 6:53 AM is due to an exchange rate, I guess, anyway it's negligible)

    great

    They're pretty popular around the world, think the French are the first ones to do it (at least in modern times, there was an Italian AT self propelled gun with a rear firing gun, IIRC).

    "Barrage" does heavy collateral damage, most of which is taken by civilians. As dense as western europe is, a hail of shells will do more in terms of unhuman slaughter than achieve any defined tactical target. PGMs are cheap and accurate enough to replace most of the shelling duties.
    The token artillery you see is probably for use in overseas contingencies or other dire scenarios. Nobody wants to see 1940 again.

    2A65 Msta-B [​IMG] 152mm Howitzer Active: ≈396


    2S3 Akatsiya [​IMG] 152mm self-propelled Howitzer Active: ≈931

    2S19 Msta-S/2S19M1 and 2S19M2 Msta-SM2 [​IMG] 152mm self-propelled Howitzer Active: ≈468

    picking just 6" from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_equipment_of_the_Russian_Ground_Forces#Artillery

    and yeah, I heard of the Koalitsya (with the rate of fire and range which are multiples of the Paladin's, but it's more because the Paladin is a ridiculous model)

    We're going completely off topic here.
    I was talking about prosperous western europe.
    I wouldn't complain if Russia isn't upgrading their army to the next level with more effective armament and rather relying on brute force, as they're already having problems maintaining the force level they had in the past.
    The point is, brute force no longer achieves parity with new tech in effectiveness.
    Any time the artillery you mentioned above is in the range of firing of any western european nation, the conflict will already have been lost. So there's probably no way these units will ever fire into any region barring eastern europe.

    to me that's an ironic topic in the eve of beginning of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoney_War eighty years ago

    If you check the requisition report I posted earlier you'll find that MoD is developing a successor utilizing the C-2. It's on P7.
