British Brimstone anti-ship missiles will arrive in Ukraine soon
Britain will send anti-ship Brimstone missiles to Ukraine to bolster naval defences after the sinking of the Russian warship Moskva. The Brimstone can be launched from platforms at sea, on land and in the air.
James Heappey, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Minister for the Armed Forces), has stated that the supersonic missile would reach Ukraine in the “next few weeks.” The Brimstone can be launched from the ground or air, but it is understood that Britain will offer surface-based systems.British Brimstone anti-ship missiles will arrive in Ukraine soon The Brimstone 1 entered service in 2005, and Brimstone 2, was added to the RAF’s arsenal in 2016. The Brimstone 2 has a maximum range of 37 miles and is equipped with a 6.3kg warhead that explodes in stages. It can switch between autonomous targeting and laser-seeking guidance. Earlier this month, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that Britain would provide the missiles to Ukraine during his visit to Kyiv.British Brimstone anti-ship missiles will arrive in Ukraine soon
