Situationsbericht Tag 281

By Phil Bainbridge

December 1, 2022 - Das US Pentagon hat einen $1,2 Milliarden Auftrag an Raytheon Technologies für sechs NASAMS Flugabwehrsysteme vergeben, damit sich die Ukraine gegen russische Raketen und Drohnenangriffe verteidigen kann.

The two NASAMS received in early November have had a 100% success rate in intercepting Russian missiles. The NASAMS were ordered under a program designed to procure weapons from industry rather than taking them from existing U.S. arms stocks, while the US Army is also accelerating its weapons procurement process to quickly replenish stocks depleted by shipments to Ukraine. The Biden Administration has committed over $19.3 billion to Ukraine’s security since the start of the war.

Meanwhile, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu has said the country, which has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons with almost 6,000 warheads, will focus on building up its nuclear infrastructure in 2023, in particular facilities to accommodate new missile systems.
