In October 2017, the president of the corporation announced the intention to start serial production of ammunition for small-arms and artillery weapons. To begin with, the corporation plans to organize the production of Soviet 7.62-mm cartridges of the 1943 model (57-?-231, 7.6239 mm), for this purpose the company purchased the necessary equipment.

TASKO was going to make sporting cartridges, but they will be with a brass case and a brass jacketed bullet, which ensures the durability of the barrel like the best western samples. Military cartridges differ only in the core - heated or unheated, armor-piercing incendiary or ordinary. But the equipment for the production and assembly of bullets is the same. If desired, we can replace the lead core with any heat-strengthened core and solve the problem of the military department.

The plans also include the production of cartridges of various calibers, both Soviet and NATO models. In addition, the production of projectiles and shots is provided. To begin with, ammunition of calibers up to 100 mm, and later also of larger calibers.

Corporation "TASKO", which had its own design and technology bureau and a well-coordinated team of specialists in the number of up to 300 people, set itself the task of organizing the production of the most massive cartridge of caliber 7.62 39 mm. For this purpose, although not new, but decent equipment has already been purchased for the production of cartridges and bullets. An installation for assembling cartridges was also purchased.

The corporation has three production plants in three regions of Ukraine with a total area of more than 45 hectares. The area of industrial buildings and structures is more than 25 thousand m2. Recently, buildings with an area of more than 1000 m2 have been built for the production and assembly of ammunition, a control and testing station for testing ammunition up to 30 mm caliber with a length of 100 m.

The company has the finished production and almost finished serial production of 100 mm ammunition for the 2A90 gun. The technology was developed and the production of 23, 30 and 100 mm caliber sleeves was started. Preparations for production have been completed and research batches of 23mm, 30mm, 30mm VOG-17 products are being prepared, 10 mm shots for MT-12, 122 mm shots for D-30, 152 mm shots for D-20 2A36 "Geocin" are being prepared.

The 152mm round is designed for D-20 gun-howitzer and the ML-20 howitzer-gun for destroying the manpower in the open or in field-tipe shelters, for destroying fieldworks, for making passages through minefields and defense wirings; for fighting the artillery and for destroying light-armoured targets. The complete set includes full and reduced multisectional charges. A blank round modification is produced for sound imitation of the firing in military training.
