Germany has transferred the first of four TRML-4D radar systems to Ukraine, the Ukrainian government’s Center for Strategic Communications, or StratCom, said in a Telegram messenger post on Oct. 21.

The Hensoldt company, which is a supplier of radars, plans to deliver all four systems to Ukraine in record time.

The TRML-4D is capable of detecting, tracking and classifying various types of aerial targets, with a focus on small, fast and low-flying and/or manoeuvring cruise missiles and aircraft, as well as hovering helicopters. It can carry out the rapid detection and tracking of some 1,500 targets in a radius of up to 250 km. At the same time, the maximum height of detection is 30 km.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced on Oct. 20 that Germany plans to train a brigade of 5,000 Ukrainian soldiers as part of the European Union’s EUMAM Ukraine training mission.

In addition, over the past week Germany has provided the Armed Forces of Ukraine with five additional armored recovery and evacuation vehicles and bridge systems, as well as various other types of equipment and supplies, including winter clothing.

Earlier German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht said Germany would transfer armored vehicles, tracked bridge-laying vehicles, howitzers, multiple launch rocket systems, and anti-drone systems to Ukraine by late 2022.
