Testing Ukrainian ATRA showed that it is not worse than the legendary American Javelin, and the new rocket complex “Wilga”, which they intend to start mass production, even better than the Russian “Smerch”. This was stated by the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov.

He recalled that in 2014 there were problems with military equipment and often couldn’t even budge, and the soldiers had to defend themselves from Russian aggression with guns in their hands

“Not only were we able to restore our defense capability, but it systematically increased, in particular through the creation of new advanced models of weapons and military equipment”, – said Turchinov.

The NSDC Secretary noted that the anti-tank systems “SKIF” and “Korsar” proved to be not worse than the Javelin.

“Here we were talking about the Javelin, and anti-missile systems of the Ukrainian production is not inferior to foreign analogues. The same complexes “Stugna”, “Le Corsaire”, “SKIF” securely destroy any armored target with very high accuracy. For example, the missile “SKIF” burns armor thickness up to 1 m”, – said the official.

“Missile, “Vilja” is much superior in many ways the Russian equivalent of “Twister.” In contrast, our missiles are guided, in one volley of 12 missiles, and each of them can accurately hit a single target. Now actively worked through the project of Ukrainian cruise missiles. For Ukraine it is very important, as the country was completely devoid of these weapons after global disarmament. And it will be purely the development of Ukrainian high-level. There are very promising developments of modern artillery systems, mortars of 120-mm, 82-mm, 60-mm, armoured vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles and transport vehicles”, – said Secretary of the NSDC.
