The Canadian Royal Air Force prepared a shipment M777 howitzers for transport to Ukraine, the RCAF said.

Video from the RCAF shows uniformed men with Canadian flag arm patches loading M777 howitzers and containers onto a CC-177 Globemaster (the Canadian designation for the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III) marked RCAF. The RCAF’s Facebook post identified them as a crew from the 429 Transport Squadron, based in Trenton, Ontario.

The RCAF said on May 26 that its CC-177 transport crew from 429 Transport Squadron had so far moved more than 1.3 million pounds (roughly 590,000 kilograms) of cargo and aid from Canada to Europe, “including the delivery of M777 howitzers.”

Canadian forces have also trained some Ukrainian troops to use the howitzers.
