The USA announced a new military aid package for Ukraine.
Military expert Oleg Katkov suggests that the new US aid package contains a legendary weapon that “cuts” ammunition in mid-air. It is about 150 large-caliber machine guns with thermal imaging sights for countering UAVs.
According to the expert, it is very important that the new aid package from the States includes additional ammunition to the already transferred systems, reports Channel 24:
“It is critical that the missiles are transferred to the NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems, GMLRS additional high-precision rockets for HIMARS, as well as anti-radar HARMs.”
According to Katkova, NASAMS is an additional security of the sky, HIMARS is a generator of “cotton” at the ammunition depots of the Russian army, and anti-radiation HARMs are a reduction of the enemy’s anti-aircraft missile systems.
