Germany strengthens Ukrainian air defence with the second IRIS-T SLM system

Germany has delivered the second of the four promised IRIS-T SLM air defence systems to Ukraine.

The state-of-the-art IRIS-T SLM air defence system manufactured by the German armaments firm Diehl Defence is not yet being used by the Bundeswehr.

The two remaining systems are yet to be produced. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz had announced last year that the defence systems to repel aircraft, missiles or drones would be supplied.




The first IRIS-T SLM air defence system is being used to protect the capital Kyiv. Kyiv’s Mayor Vitali Klitschko had praised it highly, saying that its 100 percent hit rate had saved “thousands” of people.
