RU envia mísseis de longo alcance Storm Shadow para a Ucrânia

By Jordi Bou

May 12, 2023 - A Grã-Bretanha é o primeiro país ocidental a fornecer à Ucrânia mísseis de cruzeiro de longo alcance Storm Shadow que Kiev pretende para melhorar as suas perspetivas numa aguardada contra-ofensiva.

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.
