Australia to Supply Ukraine with Advanced MANPADS

Australia has committed to providing Ukraine with a new batch of RBS 70 NG man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS), capable of targeting enemy aircraft up to a distance of 9,000 meters

This update comes from a report by Defense Industry Europe, highlighting discussions during Australian Defense Minister Richard Marles' recent visit to Lviv.

The aid package is valued at approximately $50 million and will draw from the Australian Army's inventories. Specific details regarding the quantity of RBS 70 NG launchers and missiles, or potential additional equipment such as the Giraffe AMB air defense radars from Sweden's Saab, remain undisclosed at this stage.
