Germany will send two Skynex short-range air defense systems, worth $212 million, to Ukraine this year, the Wall Street Journal reported on Feb. 28, citing the CEO of German arms manufacturer Rheinmetall AG.

According to the report, two Skynex systems have been ordered by the German government, and will be sent to Ukraine this year. The company added that otherwise Germany would independently use these air defenses for its own protection.

Earlier on Feb. 28, Rheinmetall reported that, as instructed by the German government, it began delivering SurveilSPIRE automated reconnaissance systems to Ukraine, which are used to monitor large areas of terrain, while requiring a relatively small crew to operate.
