    That's nice and all but archery stopped being a part of western warfare like 600 years ago. They could have at least sent some aquebusiers.

      and how many knights and footmen?

      For me, it's Viking Berserks.

        That was unironically the best weapon in the game

    How does it feel to be ukie now? You get more weapon variety than your average shooter game. How can you even get used to it? No standartized weapon whatever.

      Ukrainian wiki page about current weapons in use is already biggest in the world, even bigger than American

      Majority are NATO standard. Also beggars can’t be choosers.

        NATO standart means they can use same ammunition, the weapons themselves are still very different. Each NATO country have standartized weapons for their army. Like german army using G36, Leopards, PZH. But ukies have complete mess of weapons now.
        It's still chaos even if they use same ammo

          Once a unit is trained to use a piece of equipment, they'll just keep using it until they die, or it's destroyed. If they survive that destruction and there's no more equipment they have the training to operate then they'll get trained in the West again to use different kit, or they'll just become regular infantry. I don't think you've got individual artillery operators getting stressed out because the gun in the next field over has a smaller ammo capacity and runs on Windows.
          Strategically they'll likely group everything by purpose and capability, so whoever is responsible will just be aware they have e.g. 60 pieces of long range artillery and 20 of them are good enough to outrange the current Russian artillery in the area, they have a few dozen manpads that can take down low flying shit spread out to cover whatever they can, they have 100 IFVs that can take small arms fire, they have 40 tanks that can fight other tanks and half of them have EEA and functional guns... if the crew are trained and they have enough ammo and fuel I'm not really sure what major problems you expect this to be causing.

      From what understand they are logistically backed by the west to the full. They don't even need to have the maintenance infrastructure for it since the west will ship them out to fix them and then ship them back in.

    It doesn't say "approved"
    >Sweden can send 12 Archer to Ukraine
    >Försvarsmakten's analysis in regard to which weapons can be sent to Ukraine is finished, but classified. What is clear is that the Archer artillery system is highest on Ukraine's wishlist.
    >"We would be able to give them 12 artillery pieces" Says Peter Lidén, lieutenant colonel at Försvarshögskolan
    The current government is in favor, but they haven't approved it yet.

    So for those that cant read swedish or cant into clickbait:
    >Swedish Army has done an assessment of what materiel can be sent to Ukraine. This report is classified and the content not known.
    >It is known that Ukraine has the Archer on the top of the list of things it would like to get from Sweden
    >Some officer working at the Swedish Defence Academy (not the Swedish Army themselves) think it would be possible for Sweden to spare about 12 units

    The article says that they MIGHT, not that they will.

    So this is way better than the Krab Caesar and PzH2000 right

      It's on par, but moreso made for road-based quick deployment, it'd be great during rasputitsa (closest equivalent mobility compared to sweden), and you need literally 2 people to man it so manpower can be spared for other things
