American high-ranking officials, including the US deputy secretary of defence for political affairs Kal, reported on the provision of new weapons to Ukraine. Colin Kal explained that the Ukrainian military had already received aerial anti-radar missiles.
It's about the Harm missile. Texas Instruments developed it after the Vietnam War. In mid-1980, the missiles entered service in an improved form. In 1986, Harm was used for the first time in the Mediterranean against the dictator of Libya.
It is these missiles that Ukrainian defenders will be able to use against Russian invaders. The acquisition of these missiles can change the course of the war, as Harm has features necessary to destroy the warehouses and aggregations of the occupiers and advance in counter-offensive operations.
Anti-radar missiles focus on enemy air defence systems' radio-frequency radiation (often radar grilles). Harm destroys or incapacitates the enemy's air defences. Such missiles can also be used to protect aircraft. The maximum range of the air weapon is about 120 km, provided it is launched from the optimum altitude. Thus in Ukraine, air forces will be better protected, and it will be possible to destroy more warehouses of Russian occupiers, air defence, and begin offensive operations.
