    US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said that Russia’s ground artillery is better than US analogues.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Russia’s ground artillery is longer range and more capable than fielded US ground capabilities, US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday.

    Asked by Senator Roger Wicker if the US Army was "outranged" by any possible adversary, Milley affirmed, "Yes…the ones in Europe, really Russia."

    "We don’t like it, we don’t want it, but yes, technically [we are] outranged, outgunned on the ground," Milley said.
