American company Northrop to produce ammunition in Ukraine

Jun 19, 2024

The American military-industrial company Northrop Grumman Corporation plans to produce medium-caliber ammunition in Ukraine.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Breaking Defense.

According to a company spokesperson, this will take place as part of the Northrop co-production agreement, which was the first publicly recognized agreement between the US Secretary of Defense and the Ukrainian government.

"As you know, we have been working in Ukraine to produce medium-caliber ammunition. This is our first project paid for with 'Ukrainian dollars'. We plan to expand this to tank ammunition, 155 mm, and others as we find innovative processes," said Dave Bartell, director of international business for Northrop's Defense Systems Sector.

Stanley Brown, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs at the US Department of State, confirmed such plans at the Eurosatory arms exhibition in Paris.

During his speech, he noted the new US State Department's Defense Enterprise Development Program in Ukraine, which will invest $2 billion in the country's defense industry and could open the door to US-Ukrainian joint production.
