On Thursday, Norway will send 2,000 M270 anti-tank missiles to Ukraine to contribute to the fight against the Russian aggression.

The rockets were packed at Gardermoen in the morning.

“It’s an anti-tank weapon. You can say that it is an individual’s weapon against tanks,” Commander Remi Jakobsen from the Norwegian Armed Forces’ logistics organization (FLO) told NTB.

“It is a relatively simple weapon to use. It serves as a defense against tanks and could have an effect there,” Jakobsen added.

The rockets will be transported to a third country by a Hercules C130 transport aircraft before being transported to Ukraine.
