An updated list of the assistance provided is published on the German government's website.
The Ukrainian army received 5,000 155 mm artillery shells and 155 mm high-precision ammunition, the number of which is not specified.
Ammunition for MARS II multiple launch rocket systems (quantity not specified), two forklifts, four mobile antenna-mast systems and 500 SFP9 pistols were also provided.

On March 8, in Stockholm, EU defense ministers agreed to speed up the supply of artillery shells and purchase more ammunition to help Ukraine, but they still have to decide how to turn these plans into reality.

Back in the fall, it became known that the Ukroboronprom arms manufacturer would build an ammunition plant jointly with a NATO member state.
On March 14, the EU Council approved a EUR 2 billion increase in the European Peace Facility, which finances military aid to Ukraine.
