US Spends 50% More Funds on Munitions Due to Ukraine's High Artillery Burn Rate - Austin

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Saturday that the United States now has to spend 50% more money on munitions compared to five years ago because of Ukraine's high burn rate of artillery shells.

"Ukraine's high burn rate for artillery has hammered home the need to invest even more in munitions. So compared to the defense budget from just five years ago, we're putting nearly 50 percent more money into munitions," Austin said in his remarks at the Ronald Reagan National Defense Forum in California.

He also pointed out that during the Biden administration's tenure, the production of artillery shells in the US will quadruple.
