The first footage of the use of French 155-mm howitzers TRF1 by the Ukrainian army has appeared. The howitzers were not supplied free of charge, they were purchased by the Ukrainian army. The TRF1 howitzer was first introduced in 1979 and has now been withdrawn from service. The TRF1 is a 155mm self-propelled howitzer. Over long distances, the gun is transported by a tractor, and it can move across the battlefield using its own power plant at a speed of 8 km/h. During operation, various technical difficulties arose with howitzers, this determined their fate and the French army began to replace them with Caesar self-propelled guns. In terms of their fire capabilities, the TRF1 howitzers are similar to the German-Italian FH70, which were previously transferred to Ukraine, we talked about them. The firing range of the gun is 24 km with conventional projectiles and 30 km with active-rocket projectiles. Rate of fire 6 rounds per minute. Calculation of tools 8 people.
