The U.S. has promised to provide military assistance worth more than $3 billion since February this year, including Javelin anti-tank systems and attack drones.
The American military-industrial corporation Lockheed Martin is negotiating with the Pentagon to increase the production of weapons intended for Ukraine. This was reported on Tuesday by the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.
According to her, the United States has promised to provide Ukraine with military assistance worth more than $3 billion since February of this year, including Javelin anti-tank systems manufactured by Lockheed Martin and attack drones.
As previously stated by the company’s CFO Jay Malave, any additional production for Ukraine will not have an immediate impact on financial performance. At the same time, Lockheed Martin is still overcoming the consequences of supply chain difficulties that affected the manufacturing sector during the pandemic. Lockheed Martin produces F-35 combat aircraft, which Germany is now planning to purchase, as well as Black Hawk helicopters and a number of ammunition and missile defense systems. However, the corporation’s executives said that the implementation of most of the new contracts will take years.
