Latest news Ukraine

Germany will transfer to Ukraine four IRIS-T air defense systems instead of one, as previously reported, Bundestag informed.

The air defense system IRIS-T SLM allows hitting targets at a distance of up to 40 km, and in the “shorter” version of the SLS – up to 25.
The main sensor of the system is the Australian CEAFAR GBMMR radar with a 3D active phased array radar (APAR). The German TRML-4D radar (Hensoldt) can also be used, which allows for the detection of targets at a distance of up to 250 km.
