Pentagon: US expects Ukraine to receive two NASAMS air defense systems within two months

US officials expect two NASAMS anti-aircraft missile (SAM) systems to be delivered to Ukraine within two months. Pentagon spokesman US Air Force Brigadier General Patrick Ryder made the announcement during a briefing. He was quoted by TASS.

“As expected, the two NASAMS complexes will be delivered within the next two months,” he said.

Earlier, the head of the command of the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuriy Ignat, said that Kiev expects new air defense (air defense) systems from the West – German IRIST and Norwegian NASAMS. According to him, now the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) will have to use the air defense system developed about half a century ago, as well as the American Stinger man-portable air defense system (MANPADS).

In late August, the US Department of Defense signed a contract with defense contractor Raytheon to purchase NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems for Ukraine. The contract was worth $182 million.
