The United Kingdom is supplying Ukraine with Brimstone precision-guided missiles to help repel the Russian advance in the Donbas region, British Armed Forces Minister James Heappey confirmed.

According to James Heappey, the UK will be sending “hundreds” of these Brimstone precision-guided missiles within the “next few weeks.” However, he declined to confirm exactly how many missiles were being sent.

More so, much has been said about how the Brimstone missiles would be used as the weapon could be utilized as an air-to-surface missile and a surface-to-surface missile. The Times reported earlier that the Brimstones being supplied to Ukraine were anti-ship weapons as the Brimstone has the Sea Spear variant, a naval-launched maritime variant that can sink large vessels and amphibious landing ships.
