For security reasons, the production has been moved outside the country, but Ukrainians are involved in the creation of the ammunition: designers, technologists, turners, foundry workers, etc.

Ukroboronprom has also recently signed a contract with the Ministry of Defenсe for the supply of 120-mm mortar shells manufactured in cooperation with one of the North Atlantic Alliance member states.
