Ukraine, Poland to develop new air defense system

Polish company WB Electronics and Ukraine’s UkrOboronProm plan to jointly develop a new medium-range air defense system.

“Polish company WB Electronics and Ukraine’s state-owned defense industrial group, UkrOboronProm planning to jointly develop a new medium-range air defense system,” Defence Blog reports with reference to WB Electronics representative Roman Mushal.

According to Mushal, at the heart of the project should be the advanced version of the Ukrainian-made R-27 air-to-air guided missile.

He also noted that most of the necessary elements had already been created – the engine, fuel, homing heads (active, passive and thermal imaging).

The time required for the deployment of production in Poland is approximately three years, Mushal stated.

The new medium-range missile system will be used to protect the important buildings, objects as well as ground troops against all types of aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, guided weapons, air-to-surface missiles, anti-ship missiles, anti-radar rockets and large-calibre rockets.
