40 million dollars.. The Pentagon promised Ukraine a qualitative weapon, but it did not fulfill it

Despite the US aid packages that do not stop to KyivHowever, representatives of President Joe Biden’s administration revealed that the Pentagon is facing difficulties in providing Ukraine with typical reconnaissance and strike systems to counter Vampire drones.

The sources added that Washington had promised to supply this type of weapon in August of last year.

Accordingly, the Pentagon signed a contract with manufacturing company L3Harris Technologies in December of the same year.

However, the contract size is around $40 million, which is not enough for large amounts, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

According to the report, the United States will deliver 4 Vampire complexes to Ukraine, no later than the middle of this year.

He also stated that 10 more systems of the same type will be at Kyiv’s disposal by the end of 2023.

The Vampire systems, a separate modular vehicle missile kit, are a compact complex with a ball control sensor and a launcher for four small missiles.

America supported Kyiv with billions… and benefits!

It can also be controlled by one person, and the missiles equipped with the weapon can also hit air and ground targets.

Billions of dollars in aid

It is noteworthy that the value of US aid to the Ukrainian war effort has recently risen to billions of dollars.

The US Treasury announced months ago that the US aid would support basic government operations, contribute to alleviating the suffering of the Ukrainian people, and strengthen Ukrainian resistance.

American weapons changed the course of the war in Ukraine

Western aid has flowed into Kyiv since the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine last February, but its intensity increased greatly after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the annexation of the four Ukrainian regions to his country in October of last year.

Western reports have always indicated that the crisis in Ukraine has led to the depletion of weapons stocks in the “NATO” countries, which does not determine the possibility of the military aid flow to Kiev continuing at the same pace.
