Turchynov also said that the ballistic performance were checked with "a unique advanced system - a mobile radar-based trajectory-measuring system. What's unique about it is that it can track the trajectory of not only artillery and mortar shells, or missiles, but even bullets," he added.

The NSDC chief also stressed that the tested ammunition and artillery weapons "were produced by both state and private enterprises, which ensures transparent competition to improve their quality and, accordingly, cut down the price."

"I want to emphasize that all the tests were successfully completed. Ukrainian weapons and ammunition showed performance as specified by manufacturer and will be soon included in the inventory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which will boost our army's firepower," Turchynov summed up.
