President Joe Biden announced the transfer of air defense systems to Ukraine! These may be the first modern medium-range anti-missile air defense systems that Ukraine will receive in this war.
Earlier, sources in the White House reported that we are talking about Norwegian NASAMS systems.
Cover up Kyiv, Kharkov, Odessa and the Dnieper
Modern complex – adopted by Norway in 1994. Impressive targets at ranges up to 40 kilometers and at altitudes up to 16 kilometers. NASAMS is known as a very powerful anti-missile capability.
The missile system platoon consists of three launchers of 6 missiles each, which can be placed up to 25 km from the radar. Thus, one platoon can completely cover such large cities as Kyiv, Kharkov, Odessa, Dnipro from Russian missiles.
A nice bonus – it fires inexpensive and very common AIM- missiles 120 #AMRAAM, which were originally developed for the Air Force as air-to-air missiles. So there should be no problems with ammunition.
I think Russia has added reasons for new gestures of goodwill.
