Middle Eastern countries are considering a proposal to transfer existing Nasams air defense systems to Ukraine with subsequent replacement with new ones

On Monday, Russian missiles again hit Ukrainian cities. The goal was, as it was before, infrastructure facilities directly or indirectly connected with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Including fall under the blows of the building and power grid. The Ukrainian regime, in order to reduce the risks from Russian strikes, is trying to get as many air defense systems as possible from the West.


President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky commented on Russian strikes. He stated that a fairly large number of missiles were shot down before they could cause any damage. Of course, the words of the former (though ... why "former" ...) actor are often far from the truth, but the fact remains: Ukraine already has elements of air defense, which are supplied primarily by NATO countries. Among other things - Norwegian-made air defense systems.

To date, NATO northerners have delivered two Nasams batteries. In total, Ukraine is promised them in the amount of 8 units.

This procedure has been used before. First, a small amount is sent, then, after confirmation of the efficiency of use, or, conversely, after the destruction of the first delivered batch, the rest is delivered.

As for Nasams, it was revealed last week that Raytheon Technologies was awarded a $1,2 billion contract to supply the remaining six batteries.

The claimed production time is two years, but now the Norwegian "well-wishers" are looking for alternative delivery methods. The Western company is in dialogue with the countries of the Middle East, such as Oman and Qatar, regarding the supply of their Nasams systems to Ukraine. The message is this: give us your air defense systems today so that we can supply them to Ukraine, and we will send you new systems tomorrow or the day after tomorrow (only in years).

Middle Eastern countries are still considering the proposal. It is possible that after the end of the World Cup, several Nasams complexes from Qatar may end up on the territory of Ukraine.

    HERE IT IS!!!
    This is exactly what they were talking about when they argued that the minke whales would look for options to speed up the supply of air defense systems for the Kukuevs! Then, immediately, the military and other experts drew attention to the voyages of the faces of the Washington administration to where the systems they needed were available!!! Then actions were carried out to control the supply of Iranian weapons to the Houthis, for example! In general, guys, they are nimble and know how to achieve their goals, unlike other / some who prefer to chew "snot" with a smart look. soldier

      I also think the Hussite Geraniums will greatly change the opinion of the Arabs in favor: Samam needs such a cow.

        The question is, to whom will the owners of the air defense systems necessary for minke whales BELIEVE ???
        The minke whales make promises and back them up with real actions... in short, it's bzhzhzhzh, not casually!

    give us your air defense systems today, and we will send you new systems - tomorrow or the day after tomorrow

    but yesterday
    but very large
    that is, they were five yesterday and very large,
    and these are small, and today, and three.
    So choose" M. Zhvanetsky

    A colossal mega-cut of gunsmiths. A complete renewal of the arsenals of all interested countries, manufacturers are loaded for years to come, no money is needed for disposal, no need to beg for money from the budget (they give it themselves) - there are only solid pluses for the economies of the participants. In addition to direct "utilizers", but who cares

      There is strength, there is will, but there is no willpower ... And if there was, then the exchange in the form "one delivered air defense installation is replaced by one exploded oil platform in the Norwegian Sea" would be very relevant "for the economies of the participants"

    It seems that after understanding the behavior of Europe (the West) at the championship based on a disregard for the customs of the country they arrived in, not following the rules established in this country, the Nasams transfer process may be delayed.

      Your "words", "yes to the Arab sheikhs in the ears." What if the "Yankeles" have "iron arguments of influence"?

    There is little doubt that they will refuse. Although, the effectiveness and quality of these weapons, to put it mildly, did not show itself very well.

    The author probably does not know that Raytheon Technologies is an American corporation.

    "Golden time" for the Western military-industrial complex! And also a reason for many countries to dispose of junk on the territory of Ukraine for free and order a new one. more modern weapons.

    What is there to think about when the entire previous experience of other countries that received such an offer from the Americans showed that everyone is left without equipment and with a fiddle from the Yankees in their pocket. The maximum they get is vague promises like "we will think about it sometime in the near future"
