EUA venderá equipos de actualización de misiles de defensa a Ucrania

April 10, 2024 - Estados Unidos venderá a Ucrania cerca de $138 millones en equipos para mantenimiento y actualización de sus sistemas de defensa aérea HAWK para contrarrestar los ataques con drones y misiles de Rusia.

The U.S. began shipping HAWK interceptor missiles to Ukraine in 2022 as an upgrade to the shoulder-launched Stinger air defence missile systems – a smaller, shorter-range system.

Since then, Ukraine has received several air defence systems, including the U.S.-made Patriot.

The MIM-23 HAWK – a name that began life as an acronym for "Homing All the Way Killer" – was first introduced in the 1950s as the U.S. military sought ways to defeat raids by high-flying strategic bombers. It was upgraded over the years to deal with jamming and other countermeasures, and eventually exported to more than a dozen countries, Reuters said.
