British/Swedish anti-tank missiles a game-changer in defence of Ukraine
Friday, 04 March 2022
As we reported here last Saturday, Britain's supply of the NLAW anti-tank weapon is a serious game-changer.
It's a near-perfect defensive weapon, easily hidden in urban settings, almost impossible to detect/eliminate and simple to operate.
And it's deadly.
In January, Britain sent Ukraine 2,000 of them. Many many more have since been supplied - with numbers withheld for operational reasons.
And there are plenty more columns for them to target - this map from the British Ministry of Defence.

This war isn't just about missile strikes on buildings.
It's about taking and holding ground - in an urban environment.
That means vehicles. Or targets, depending on which side you're on.
I would be shitting bricks going into Ukraine.
Every window, every drain, every roof, every doorway, every wall, every alley.......
Much more here.
