It is specified that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine plans this year to sign a contract for the supply of the second division of the anti-ship missile system RK-360MTS “Neptune”. At the same time, work on the manufacture of the first division is proceeding according to the approved plan and it is expected that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive anti-ship missile systems in early 2022.
It is noted that in the future, if necessary, Ukrainian enterprises will be able to increase the number of produced divisions up to three per year. Such volumes will allow simultaneous execution of orders for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and for potential customers from abroad. It is alleged that negotiations are underway on possible future purchases of the Neptune RC-360MC with four countries.
