لماذا فشلت أنظمة الدفاع الجوي "باتريوت" التايوانية من اعتراض الصواريخ الصينية

Ukraine will receive additional ammunition for the Patriot air defense systems and ammunition for the HIMARS systems as part of the latest military aid package provided by the US Department of Defense to the country.

This authorization is the Biden administration’s 39th withdrawal of equipment from DoD stockpiles for Ukraine since August 2021.

This security assistance package also contains artillery, anti-armor capabilities, and ammunition, including tens of millions of rounds of small arms ammunition, worth up to $300 million to help Ukraine continue to defend its sovereign territory.

Ukraine will also receive radar-guided AIM-7 anti-aircraft missiles for the first time, but the country does not have any suitable platform to launch them. The AIM-7 can be fired from the Aspide missile system it received from Spain which uses the manual version of this missile, the RIM-7.

Western media reported that the Ukrainian defense industry was able to integrate AIM-7 missiles with Buk air defense launchers.

The missile can hit targets with a maximum range of 19 kilometers and an altitude of 8 meters to 15 kilometers.

The capabilities available in the latest package include:

• Additional ammunition for Patriot air defense systems.

• AIM-7 air defense missiles.

• Avenger air defense systems (Avanger).

• Stinger anti-aircraft systems.

• Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).

• 155 mm and 105 mm artillery shells;
