الولايات المتحدة ترسل نظام دفاع جوي إلى أوكرانيا
June 28, 2022 - NASAMS، نظام صاروخي أرض-جو متقدم، سيساعد أوكرانيا في الدفاع عن المدن الكبرى من الضربات الصاروخية الروسية.
U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan said “I can confirm that we are, in fact, in the process of finalising a package that includes advanced air defence capabilities”, The Guardian reports.
NASAMS, designed and manufactured by the Norwegian company Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace in cooperation with U.S. firm Raytheon, is used by the U.S. to protect the sensitive air space around the White House and Capitol in Washington DC.
A standard NASAMS unit has a modular design including a Fire Distribution Center command post, an active 3D radar MPQ64F1 Sentinel, a passive electro-optic and infra-red sensor and a number of missile canister launchers with AMRAAM missiles. Normally, four NASAMS units are netted in a battalion network.
In a battalion configuration comprising of up to 12 launchers and up to 72 missiles loaded, all missiles can be fired against individual targets in less than 15 seconds.
