The Ukrainian army will soon be armed with American anti-gun radar stations and patrol boats. The Pentagon informed the US Congress about the possible supply of military equipment worth $ 125 million to Ukraine.
According to available information, the US Department of Defense intends to use half of the $ 250 million allocated to Ukraine, in which military equipment will be delivered, including anti-gun radars and Mark VI patrol boats. Delivery times are not called. The US Department of Defense declined to comment on this information.
The Department of Defense does not comment on or confirm the upcoming Congressional Security Assistance
- said Pentagon spokeswoman Carla Gleason.
It should be noted that the delivery to Ukraine of American counter-battery radars is far from the first. In 2014, the Armed Forces of Ukraine received three counter-battery combat radars AN / TPQ-48A LCMR from the presence of the American army. Moreover, one of the transmitted radars in 2015 was abandoned during the retreat of Ukrainian troops in the Debaltseve area and fell into the hands of militias. After that, the United States doubted the feasibility of delivering radars to Ukraine.
However, later the United States supplied Ukraine with 14 counter-battery radars of the AN / TPQ-49 and AN / TPQ-36 class, in May 2019 the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine received two more counter-battery radars of the AN / TPQ-36 class.
What radars will be delivered this time is unknown, and there is no information about other types of military equipment that will be transmitted as part of this delivery.
