U.S. to deliver rockets in Ukraine aid package
May 3, 2023 - The United States is sending a new $300 million military aid package for Ukraine that will for the first time include Hydra air-launched rockets.
The Hydra 70 is a short-range unguided rocket made by General Dynamics. The rockets are typically launched from pods attached to aircraft or helicopters.
The rockets could help Ukraine weaken Russian ground positions and provide advancing Ukrainian ground forces with air support as Kyiv plans a spring offensive, Reuters said.
