USA Transfers NASAMS to Ukraine

The speaker of the Pentagon announced that within 60 days, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be armed with 3 NASAMS systems

Ukraine continues the offensive operation. Foreign weapons, combined with Ukrainian strength and dedication, result in victory. Another step towards the victory of Ukraine is the NASAMS anti-aircraft missile system for the Ukrainian army.

Patrick Rader, Pentagon spokesman and brigadier general, said that the first 2 installations will be transferred to Ukraine within 60 days. The total number is 3 units.

"These defence systems will further strengthen Ukraine's defence against airborne threats," Patrick Reider.

It is known that the Pentagon signed a contract for the production of NASAMS with Raytheon Missiles & Defense. However, these batteries will not be manufactured until August 24. Probably, NASAMS for Ukraine will be allocated from the balance of the US armed forces. The anti-aircraft missile system includes a launcher and a Raytheon AN/MPQ-64F1 sentinel radar station.

Today, American NASAMS is included in the defence complex of 12 states.
