A special place among "Air-to-air" aircraft missiles, created in Soviet times, is taken by intermediate-range and long-range R-27 missiles (NATO classification - AA-10 Alamo). Such missiles are equipped on all modifications of MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters. By now, the R-27 modifications with active and semi-active radar and thermal seekers are used in almost 20 countries around the world.Add a comment
Ukraine has intensified domestic R&D activities aimed to develop multi-role ground robotic platforms suitable to support intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR) missions, combat missions, and other tasks. These activities, however at the initial stage only, have already produced prototypes which have been demonstrated to potential customers, among them the Defense Ministry.

Prior to the start of combat actions in Donbas, Ukraine’s Armed Forces and other security forces were armed largely with weapons left behind by the Soviet Army after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Additions of newly-made weapons, for different reasons, were quite rare and very limited in numbers. But Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has changed the situation regarding the provision of security forces with upgraded as well as newly made Ukrainian weapons, especially armored vehicles.Add a comment
