Caught by the Russians as they were setting up. Targeted by a Zala kamikaze drone, then a follow-on strike by rocket artillery as they seek shelter in a nearby forest.

90 howitzers and 180,000 rounds delivered by the US. This compares to about 500 towed howitzers Ukraine had at the start of the war, and 600 self-propelled ones.
