Norway has recently donated Mistral man portable air defense systems (MANPADS) to Ukraine. This includes at least 100 missiles and an unspecified number of launchers. To make these air defense systems mobile, the Ukrainians are marrying them with an undisclosed number of Fiat Fullback 4×4 pickup trucks donated to them by the Come Back Alive Foundations. Innovation at work.
I think this is the first photo that show a FIAT Fullback 4×4 pick-up (about fifty arrived in Ukraine last week), operative as mobile platform for MANPADS operators. In this case ukrainian solider is equipped with FIM92 Stinger.
