Why Ukraine's Anti-Tank Missiles Are So Effective

The top Republican senators on the defense, intelligence and foreign affairs committees are urging the Biden administration to expedite the delivery of arms and equipment to Ukraine as well as tap industry to surge production, using $13.6 billion in emergency funding. 

Legislation signed by President Joe Biden on Tuesday included over $3 billion for additional direct military assistance on top of $600 million in recent presidential drawdown authority for equipment that’s nearly all delivered. In a letter on Tuesday, the lawmakers suggest a long list of equipment in addition to more high-profile Stinger anti-aircraft and Javelin anti-armor missiles.
