US portal Military Watch has written that Patriot SAMs will not be able to significantly help Ukraine
The Patriot surface-to-air missile system from the United States will not be able to significantly influence the course of military operations in Ukraine and will not help the armed forces of the country to strengthen its air defense systems, the US portal Military Watch has said.
The article claims that the SAM will not be able to help the Ukrainian army sufficiently to shoot down Russian missiles both because of the complex’s dubious track record and the very small number of combat units that can be delivered as part of the $1.85 billion military aid package.
“The SAM has had great difficulty dealing with homemade missiles and Soviet R-17 missiles from the 1960s, so its ability to neutralise 21st-century Russian missiles such as Iskander is highly questionable,” the paper noted.
The article suggested that the potential failure of Patriot in Ukraine could jeopardize the possibility of further sales of SAMs.
