We have already written more than once that Germany will transfer a modern IRIS-T air defense system to Ukraine. Now there is information about the number of units and the terms of deliveries.
When We Can Expect It
So, Ukraine will receive 4 IRIS-T. German Ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen told this in an interview with Radio NV.
"I am very happy that we will be transmitting four of these systems. It will protect a large part in Ukraine. We have already heard that the first system will be definitely this year, I think the second system as well, and the third and the fourth - then, at the beginning of the new year," Feldhusen said.
By the way, earlier Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba announced that Ukraine expected to receive the first anti-aircraft missile system IRIS-T already this autumn.
As a reminder, the IRIS-T is a medium-range surface-to-air missile system. It was developed by the German company Diehl Defense in 2014. The system is designed to destroy aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, cruise and ballistic missiles. IRIS-T is considered one of the most advanced air defense systems.
