Ukraine has concluded two contracts with the French based Europlasma for the provision of forged 155mm artillery shell bodies. The first contract will see 60.000 such forgings delivered in 2024 and the second contract will see 360.000 delivered over 3 years from 2026 to 2028 at a rate of 120.000 units per year. The price of these contracts or who is financing them is currently unknown.

Last May an unknown customer believed to be Ukraine had placed an order for 6.000 large body shell forgings, now seemingly happy with the quality placed two additional orders.
