How in the fuck is Ukraine going to consolidate the sheer diversity in weapons and equipment currently being operated by their military?

How in the fuck is Ukraine going to consolidate the sheer diversity in weapons and equipment currently being operated by their military?
It seems like it'd be a massive clusterfuck to try and manage all the ammo types, let alone sourcing replacement parts or troops trained on various weapon systems and vehicles.

Has anyone heard anything on this?
How's Ukraine gonna streamline their equipment going forward?
Is most of it gonna end up ditched or mothballed?
Will there be a resell market?

Check this shit out.

    We need to get MAGA candidates to campaign on importing a ton of cool shit from Ukraine, with the condition that a portion of the profits will benefit Ukraine. I don't even care about Ukraine, I just want a new golden age of foreign milsurp.

    I'd imagine they'll standardize on a hybrid NATO/domestic kit and anything not part of that will get kicked to the TDF which is like being mothballed but better because a Ukrainian keeps the shit maintained.

    Probably keep ones with similar parts, common ammo types, and ones which can be used in specialized roles. A lot will end up on the black market like they are now, or will be "lost" (i.e. hidden in a Ukrainian's or Russian's closet like after WW2)

    How much is it different for most equipment?

    I can see the issue with tanks and IFV's, HIMARS, and other specialized equipment needing a good few weeks to learn. But if you're already proficient in driving one western APC or firing, say, the German Panzerfaust-3, how hard is it to learn another APC or rocket launcher?

    they will most likely keep the most effective and influentially weapons (javelin, nlaw, HIMAR, Harm), and then mothball or sell the rest.

    They don't need to keep this equipment running for 20-30 years. Or even 10.
    They need to keep it running for a year or two at most.
    After the war is over they'll standardise on a few items. Ther est will be used as legacy items by militia troops until they break down.

    A lot of stuff will be retired or sold/transferred post-war, assuming Ukraine as an independent state survives. I assume, it will shift a lot of equipment to a NATO standard.

    Consolidation of weapon systems and gear is a problem for the peace time military. They are attempting to equip nearly 1 million people so they’ll take what they can get. For now, making sure soldiers have any weapon, any armored vehicle, any helmet, etc is better than a tin pot helmet from the 50’s and a mosin like the Lugandans have.

          It's worth noting that India was happy to buy Ukraine ag products prior to this war. Be interesting to keep watch and see how Ukraine bargains with India in the future, given all the lavish support India has provided Ukraine since the night of the invasion. Well worth remembering.

    Ukraine will likely standardize on the best weapons and equipment, sell the American gear they don't want to China, and sell the Russian gear they don't want to Africa. Whatever equipment Ukraine does decide to standardize on America will give them more of for free at tax payer expense.

    Simply start phasing out old soviet shit and upgrading it with modern western weapons and doing what everyone else does with the old shit. Sell it to an arms dealer who'll distribute it overseas to some third world government or terrorist organisation you want to support but can't be seen to be actively supporting. I'm sure the Americans are looking at all that captured Russian hardware and think it would be just the thing to distribute to some shit hole in the middle east, or Africa, to prop up some despot to keep Chink expansionism at bay.

    >Will there be a resell market?
    Yes. It has happened before. After the collapse of USSR Ukraine inherited huge stockpiles of Soviet military gear. Infact Ukraine had bigger army than Russia after the breakup. Ukrainian oligarchs however sold almost everything to black markets and they became insanely rich by doing so. Unfortunately it left Ukraine militarily weak which West is now fixing by giving arms. The arms dealers and corruption has not gone anywhere from that country and it is safe to assume and that most of all the military aid which is given to there will be going to hands of corrupted officials and arms dealers who will sell those guns abroad

    They will focus on one platform, probably the most advanced one that they have lots of, for their 250k+ standing army. The one million strong reserves, that in January had three mosins and a tea kettle between them, will be set up with all the other material, which means it will be put in storehouses when they demobilize, and then they will spend the next 20 years trying to find money to get more of the same gun the standing forces have. it might not be priority 1 considering half the country is a heap of rubble and corpses.
