Sweden to supply ASC 890 surveillance aircraft to Ukraine

By Jordi Bou

May 31, 2024 - Sweden is to provide two ASC 890 surveillance aircraft to Ukraine, seen as crucial for identifying incoming cruise missiles, drones and aircraft, as well as seaborne targets.

The planes are part of the largest military support package to date from the Nordic nation, worth a total of $1.3 billion.

The ASC 890 can spot threats hundreds of kilometres away and send the information via data link to the F-16 fighter jets that Ukraine will receive from allies.

Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, said Sweden’s latest package of assistance would be “critical to Ukraine’s defence and resilience”.
