UK schickt Langstrecken Storm Shadow Raketen in die Ukraine

By Jordi Bou

May 12, 2023 - Britannien ist das erste westliched Land, das die Ukraine mit der Langstrecken Storm Shadow Rakete versorgt, die Kiew braucht um seine lang-erwartete Gegenoffensive zu beginnen.

The Storm Shadow cruise missile is armed with a penetrating warhead capable of destroying hardened and buried targets from long range.

Storm Shadow has a range of “in excess of 250km”, according to its manufacturer, the European arms group MBDA. That is significantly further than the high-precision US Himars rocket launchers currently used heavily by Ukraine, which rely on missiles with a range of 70km.

The Storm Shadow missile has been operated by both British and French air forces and has been used previously in the Gulf, Iraq and Libya.
