The UK Ministry of Defence has published a video of Brimstone 2 laser-guided missiles being sent to Ukraine.
"As part of its aid package, the UK has provided Brimstone 2 missiles, a precision-guided missile, to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This aid has played a crucial role in stalling Russian advancements," the UK Ministry of Defence tweeted.
The missiles, which cost around £175,000 each, are either laser-guided or can select their own target from a pre-programmed list using extremely high-frequency millimeter-wave radar. This system allows the weapon to scan the battlefield and select the most suitable target, ignoring civilian vehicles or less important military equipment.
When guided by a laser, Brimstone can be used in built-up areas with great accuracy, limiting the potential for collateral damage among civilians.
