    Not exactly new equipment but Ethiopians are mounting Nevas on T55s same as Cubans did, probably with limited Russian aid:

    The first photographs of Chinese 300-mm MLRS PHL03 (copies of "Smerch") in Ethiopia. Previously, the supply of multiple launch rocket systems of this type to Ethiopia was not reported. The 12-barreled combat vehicle MLRS PHL03 developed by NORINCO is made on the chassis of the TAS5380 vehicle, the firing range is 20-150 km. It is a copy of the Russian Smerch system.

    Rare images of 152-mm self-propelled howitzers 2S19 "Msta-S" of the Ethiopian ground forces, taken in 2020. Ethiopia acquired 12 2S19 self-propelled howitzers from the presence of the Russian armed forces in 1999 during the armed conflict with Eritrea. This was the first export delivery of 2S19 abroad.

    Are there any people here with some info here on the current Ethiopia/Amhara - Tigray conflict

    Or Ethiopian members, even better

    From what I can deduct the fighting seems to have intensified quite a bit during the last couple of weeks. Lots of reports of massacres too.

    Imposter Biden sends Senator Coons (not Coon!) to Ethiopia. Coons will also talk with the African Union.

    From my limited understanding the US seems to be supportive towards the TPLF. Ethiopia has made a rapid turn towards the Chinese in the last couple of years, and this has led to a strange joint Eritrean-Ethiopian campaign against the TPLF (the Eritreans have occupied the major cities near their border and the Ethiopians are in the rest of the region)

    Another massacre, video of the killings can be found  on Telegram. Dozens of young Tigray males executed by the Ethiopian military

    There have also been several skirmishes on the Sudan-Ethiopian border as Sudan seems to be supportive of the TPLF (+ there is a longstanding border dispute)

    The amount of Ethiopians pissed at America is forever growing. They had mass protests for a while. With US backing, they can kill as many as their own people as they want
