According to the information of CNN of the US Department of Defense is inundated with applications from defense companies that want to design, manufacture, and supply weapons to Ukraine. It seems that our country will become a real testing ground for the newest weapons. It would be better if it didn’t happen at all, but with such neighbors, we have what we have.
First of all, we are talking about proposals related to the urgent military needs of Ukraine – air defense, anti-tank and anti-personnel complexes, UAVs, counter-battery combat, secure communications, etc.
It is expected that in the coming weeks, the Pentagon will decide which ideas make sense to implement, which will be used by Ukraine, which will be needed by the USA itself. All this is a bit like a big brainstorming session of US gunsmiths.
But it is not only about the newest weapons, but also about speeding up the production of the old ones: “The ministry is studying options that would allow us to speed up production and build additional capacity for weapons and equipment that can be quickly exported, deployed with minimal training and that have proven their effectiveness in the field battle,” the message says.
As we well know, some new weapons are already undergoing combat testing in Ukraine. We are talking about a new improvised platform for Brimstone missiles, kamikaze drones Swichblade, mysterious drones Phoenix Ghost. We are sure that this is far from a complete list and it will definitely be supplemented.
