Ukraine Will Receive 14 Vampire Air Defense From the USA

4 units will be handed over in the first half of 2023, and 10 more by the end of the year

On January 9, the US Department of defence signed a contract with L3Harris Technologies to manufacture 14 vehicle-agnostic modular palletized ISR rocket equipment. The $40 million deal was signed to " strengthen Ukraine's defence efforts." The systems will be installed on cars, which the American government will also provide.

"Vampire portable complex will allow Ukrainian ground forces to track and shoot down enemy drones and defend against enemy ground threats," L3Harris.

The first 4 systems that will strengthen the defence capability of Ukraine will be ready and transferred to DoD USA in the middle of the year, and the remaining 10 — by the end of 2023.

A distinctive feature of the Vampire is their relative lightness and higher mobility. In addition, they can be installed on any pickup truck, and it only takes 2 hours and the effort of 2 people. Vampire projectiles are cheaper, more accurate, and guided by a self-activating laser guidance system. We remind you that the United States will allocate $3 billion to increase Ukraine's position at the negotiating table with Russia.
