​The list will be classified, but it will contain mortars, Stinger launchers, machine guns, rounds and anti-tank launchers. Maybe even tanks.

According to NewItaly24 new package of military aid to Ukraine has not yet been defined in detail. But two pieces of equipment are definitely destined for Kiev on the list. That is the 155 mm caliber artillery pieces that other NATO countries have already sent to the front to fight the Russian batteries. And then the FH70 guns should also arrive, which are equipped with an engine that allows small movements and repositioning.

The FH70s are 12 meters long, have a range of over 20 kilometers and can hold bullets with ten kilos of explosives. The Italian army has more than 160 at its disposal. The other means that should reach the front is the Lynx. That is the Iveco off-road vehicle capable of resisting mines. The Russian army also has it in its equipment. And the Ukrainians captured many of them during the Russian invasion. There will be no drones and electronic systems. Because the Italian Defense has very few of them, even if Leonardo produces several models. The hypothesis, explains the newspaper, is that they are commissioned by Ukraine with a normal contract. The same could happen with the Falco reconnaissance drones, which in the past Leonardo hired to the UN military contingents.
