German government discusses granting Kiev protection systems from IRIS-T SLM airstrike

Today, the front pages of German morning newspapers have published descriptions of the IRIS-T SLM defense systems from modern airstrikes. Perhaps the Federal Republic of Germany will start supplying such systems to Ukraine.

AZERTAC reports that a discussion of the topic began yesterday in the Cabinet of Ministers. For example, the Bild newspaper quoted its sources as saying that Ukrainian soldiers could soon be sent to Germany to study the application of those systems in combat situations. By the way, the first such system produced by Diel Defens could already be delivered to Ukraine in November. According to the newspaper, Kiev is interested in buying ten such systems.

The IRIS-T SLM system has the potential to destroy warplanes, helicopters, wing missiles, pilotless aircraft, reactive artillery, and bombs.
