Ukraine war: France to deploy long-range missiles as Biden dithers | World | News
Biden has taken heat from the decision over widespread concerns that the controversial bombs could cause civilian casualties.
The Pentagon will provide weapons that have a lower “dud rate”, meaning there will be far fewer unexploded rounds that could cause unintended civilian deaths.
The weapons will come from the Pentagon’s stockpile and will also include Bradley and Stryker armored vehicles and a range of weapons, such as rounds for howitzers and the highly mobile artillery rocket system, known as HIMARS, officials said. .
Long sought by Ukraine, cluster bombs are weapons that explode in the air, releasing submunitions, or “bombs”, that are scattered over a large area and which is intended to destroy multiple targets at once.
