US revises proposals for new arms capabilities for Ukraine

The US Defense Department is currently revising proposals for new "weapons capabilities for Ukraine's fight against Russia," CNN reported on Thursday citing a person familiar with that matter.

According to the report, the US would be examining 1,300 proposals from 800 firms on innovative new arms and commercial capabilities that it could develop. The department-requested proposals focus on priority areas-including air defense, anti-armor, anti-personnel, coastal defense, and anti-tank.

This comes as United States President Joe Biden said that he soon will announce another $800 million in military aid for Ukraine, "including new advanced Western air defense systems, more artillery, and ammunition counter-battery radars."
