The Pentagon will deliver APU counter-battery radars and patrol boats

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.

    Already been. Delivered
    "One ruined, a friend malice."

    And this is not a joke of humor. One of the stations delivered by the United States was put out of action by the curved arms of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the second whole (complete set was not specified) got to the militia during the Debaltsev operation.

      APU time to put the command on the KVN. Stock original scenes oh-go-go. With those three radars in general a joke. The first station was dropped during unloading ... the second was put right on the battery position and it was covered upon impact ... the third was abandoned during the retreat ...

          It is said the same.
          Congress allocated 250 million to Ukraine
          But handing it to Kiev is like throwing it away. Yes, and sorry to give. And then just in the fleet reduction. So instead of 125 million - debited boats.
          Kiev will not see the rest of the money.

      Eco not seen! Counter-battery radars have been there since 2014 ... along with American experts from the electronic warfare and electronic intelligence units! We decided to legalize their scrap laughing
      But the thing, in fact, is harmful, it works on any radio signal - it turned on the mobile phone - it got the shell!

        What are you talking about ? They didn’t confuse the counter-battery radar with anything else?

        I, “offhand,” without bothering with searches, will quote from Wikipedia (believe me, this is the case where she does not lie):

        - "counter-battery combat radar (counter-battery radar, artillery guidance radar system) - mobile Radar, which allows to determine the location of the enemy’s battery by the trajectory of shells, missiles or artillery mines and to provide real-time target designation for both low-flying targets and counter-battery warfare. Attached to artillery batteries and multiple launch rocket systems as a means of controlling fire. "

          Yes, I'm a little about something else! The proposal was not built correctly, but the essence is in the use of radio direction finding tools from the American army’s radio intelligence units.

      Well, all right, not everyone knows English, it says that the weight is 150 pounds and two people need to drag the box.

              Of course, after 2015 I did not see them anymore.
              And they were in a deplorable state even then.

    Everything can be. Congress does not forget about their Wishlist.
    All the politics and misfortune of their ruling is aimed at suppressing, causing maximum harm to their opponents! Everything is quite expected, to lose a penny, by their standards, and disgusting us, for example, turns out to be a rupe ...

    The Democratic Party in the USA squealed,
    that trump set the condition for military assistance in exchange
    for an investigation against Biden.
    If Ukraine doesn’t start moving against Biden,
    then Trump will not sign such a delivery.

    use half of the amount of $ 250 million allocated to Ukraine, in the framework of which military equipment will be delivered

    Instead of military equipment, the Ukrainian authorities are better concerned with the issue of agriculture. The relevance of the issue of agriculture in Ukraine is very acute. Ukraine in terms of engineering and technology in agriculture lags behind advanced countries by 40 years. Only two percent of its agricultural land is cultivated using conservation farming technologies. Due to the backwardness of Ukrainian agriculture, crop losses reach 30%. And the Neo-Bandera rulers are buying weapons from the Americans on an American loan ...
