The UK has supplied Ukraine with sophisticated weaponry including thousands of NLAW anti-tank missiles and advanced air defense systems such as Starstreak and AMRAAM missiles.

These have been complemented by substantial artillery support, with the UK delivering multiple-launch rocket systems and over 200,000 rounds of artillery ammunition, enhancing Ukraine’s long-range combat capabilities.

In terms of armoring and mobility, the UK has provided more than 200 armored and logistic support vehicles, including Sea King helicopters, to enhance the Ukrainian forces' operational capabilities on the ground. The maritime domain has not been overlooked, with the UK donating maritime equipment like Brimstone missiles and autonomous underwater vehicles for mine hunting.

The UK has also strengthened Ukraine’s electronic warfare and surveillance capabilities, supplying jamming systems and surveillance kits including radars and laser designators.

On the personal protection front, Ukrainian forces have received essential gear including helmets, body armor, and medical supplies, crucial for the harsh conditions faced on the battlefield.

Furthermore, the UK's support extends to comprehensive training programs under Operation Interflex, which has already seen over 30,000 Ukrainian personnel trained with plans for further expansion. This training encompasses a broad spectrum from basic combat to specialized training for tank crews and pilots, enhancing the skills and effectiveness of Ukrainian forces.
