British weapon supply flights, the first taking off before the invasion started, continue to supply Ukraine with weapons with which to defend itself against invading Russian forces.

The supply flights started before the invasion and have not stopped since. However, they now land in Poland near the Ukrainian border.

As I write this article, one is about to land.

UK military assistance to Ukraine has been extensive and varied, encompassing a wide range of equipment, training, and financial aid.

The UK has provided extensive military support to Ukraine, including a variety of tanks, armored fighting vehicles, and personnel carriers. Notable contributions include 14 Challenger 2 tanks, 101 CVR(T) vehicles crowdfunded by the Serhiy Prytula Foundation, and numerous FV series vehicles such as the FV107 Scimitar Mk IIs and FV103 Spartans.

Additionally, mine-resistant vehicles like Wolfhound and Mastiff, infantry mobility vehicles like the Husky, and towed and self-propelled artillery have been supplied. Significant shipments of multiple rocket launchers, air defense systems, and electronic warfare equipment further bolster Ukraine’s defensive capabilities.

In addition to heavy equipment, the UK has supplied critical air defense systems, including Stormer HVMs and Starstreak man-portable air-defense systems, and a variety of drones and radar systems for surveillance and counter-drone operations. The UK has also provided substantial ammunition support, including millions of rounds of small arms ammunition, artillery shells, and precision-guided rockets.

Further, extensive logistical support has been given through the supply of logistics vehicles, ambulances, and other transport vehicles to ensure operational efficiency on the battlefield.

Beyond material support, the UK has been instrumental in training Ukrainian forces through Operation Orbital and its successor, Operation Interflex, which aims to train thousands of Ukrainian troops in various combat and technical skills.

Financial aid has also been significant, with billions in export financing, direct donations, and World Bank loan guarantees to support Ukraine’s military and economic resilience.

Keep an eye on ADSB not difficult to detect. Also the US flights. Large civilian freighters landing at what once was a small regional airport near the Poland Ukraine border.

Ship tracker is also useful looking at US shadow fleet. Crane ships visiting Sunny Point then dissappear.
