The Armed Forces of Ukraine could already receive anti-radar missiles AGM-88 HARM (High-speed Anti-Radar Missile). The wreckage of such a missile was discovered after the APU hit one of the targets in the rear of the Russian troops, writes Military Review. Presumably, the target of the missile was a Russian air defense system deployed to the territory of Ukraine.

These missiles are designed to destroy air defense systems. Experts say that markings were found on the wreckage, which indicates that this is just an AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missile.

AGM-88 HARM were put into service with the US in 1983. Missiles of this type can be aimed at high-frequency radars.

It is worth noting that officially the supply of these missiles to Ukraine was not reported. But at the same time, there was information that Ukraine would receive weapons that would help in the fight against Russian air defense.

Experts note that it is not clear how Ukraine launched these missiles, since, according to publicly available information, only American and European aircraft have installations for their launch, but not the Soviet-style military aviation that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have.
