Ukraine has requested new types of weapons from the United States to successfully repel Russian aggression, including F-18 fighters, drones, Apache attack helicopters, and others. This was reported by Reuters.
It is reported that officials of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine presented a "list of weapons to meet the needs of the Ukrainian defense forces" during a closed meeting in Washington, D.C., which was attended by government officials and heads of the US defense industry.
According to sources familiar with the list, it includes weapons that Ukraine already has in service, such as Abrams tanks and 155mm artillery, as well as F-16 aircraft, drones, and long-range ATACMS missiles.
But there are several new items on the list, including Boeing's C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft and Lockheed Martin's C-130 Super Hercules. The list also includes Apache and Black Hawk attack helicopters.
The documents also say that Ukraine is requesting F-18 fighter jets, three types of General Atomics drones, including the MQ-9B Sky Guardian, and the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system made by Lockheed.
