The US will dispatch another $625 million in military aid to Ukraine from its own stocks a day after President Biden sought to boost the American defense stockpile after sending more than 20 such packages over the past year.
The latest shipment will include four High Mobility Artillery Rocket systems (HIMARS), the Pentagon said Tuesday. Senior defense officials have said the rocket launchers high-precision capabilities have contributed to Kyivs recent battlefield gains.
The package will also include 16 155mm howitzers, 75,000 accompanying artillery rounds and an additional 500 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds; 1,000 155mm rounds of Remote Anti-Armor Mine Systems; 16 105mm howitzers; 30,000 120mm mortar rounds; 200 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles; 200,000 rounds of small arms ammunition and Claymore anti-personnel munitions.
If we went to war, normally we could fight for 2 weeks before getting permission from China. But the depletion of our field supplies makes fighting any war impossible.
