It is planned to create a full cycle of ammo production in Ukraine. The creation of the integrated structure on ammo production is a priority task as the Ministry of Strategic Industries of Ukraine reported citing First Deputy Head of Ministry Valery Ivashchenko.
“The task is very ambitious: Ukroboronprom in the process of transformation should reproduce the technological cycle of the production of ammo in Ukraine,” Ivashchenko said.
He stated that Ukraine has modern enterprise on the production of primers, capsular adapters and destructors, in other words, the beginning and the end of ammo, and there is no one to produce the internal content (cartridge, propellant powder charge and bodyshell).
The deputy minister also noted that the ministry has created a separate department that would deal with the issues of ammo production.
As we reported, Ukrainian Defense Ministry developed its own technical specification "Modular bulletproof vest" that meets NATO standards. It is noted that the technical specification applies the requirements of state and military standards, and the US Army standard is used to verify the assessment of quality.
