The Ukrainian army ordered three Rock self-propelled mortars from Poland in April this year. The vehicles are based on the Rosomak armored personnel carrier. The Rocks have a 120 mm gun and are equipped with automatic loading machines mounted on a tracked chassis.
New information from the front. Russians attack despite bad weather
Russian troops are carrying out offensive operations along various fronts despite unfavorable weather, trying to seize the initiative ahead of Russia’s March presidential election, writes the US Institute for the Study of War (ISW).
ISW writes that Russian troops are currently conducting offensives in Ukraine, especially on the border of the Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, with a significant part of the front towards Pakmut and Avdiyivka. In addition, the Russians continue to conduct ground offensives in the west of Zaporizhia province.
“For the past few weeks, Russian forces have continued offensive operations on the border of Kharkiv and Luhansk regions despite snow, frost and mud, and conducted ground offensives in the western part of Zaporizhia province despite muddy conditions and strong winds,” ISW asserts.
Large parts of the front, especially the northeastern and eastern parts of Ukraine, are currently experiencing freezing temperatures as temperatures drop. The frost will harden the muddy ground, which will accelerate mechanized operations on the Russian and Ukrainian sides.
