The new US aid package for Ukraine will include GPS-guided ground-based missiles, Bloomberg writes.
The long-range hybrid weapon combines two devices: a small-diameter aerial bomb guided by GPS satellites and an army missile already operated by Ukrainian forces. The weapons manufacturer is Boeing Corporation.
During the exercise, these projectiles covered a route of 130 kilometers (double the current Himars missiles in service with the Ukrainian army) and hit a target within a radius of 100 centimeters from the GPS mark. It should be noted that this will be the first contract for the supply of these weapons to the armies of the world.
The first deliveries of high-precision long-range missiles are expected no earlier than 9 months after the contracts are concluded, according to Bloomberg.
Ukraine’s new aid package will also include Claymore antipersonnel mines, Excalibur 155mm GPS-guided projectiles, Patriot missile support equipment and Mk 153 man-portable rocket launchers.
The White House is expected to announce a new $1.75 billion military aid package for Ukraine on Friday.
