Spain is preparing to start training the Ukrainian military next week.

Infodefensa reports about it.

The first 20 soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will arrive in Spain from Poland by plane of the Spanish Air Force.

Trainigns will take place at Europe’s largest military training ground, San Gregorio, near Zaragoza.

Spain will train gunners, M113 crews and air defense crews.

Earlier, Spanish media reported their intention to transfer air defense systems with Aspide missiles to Ukraine.

Aspide is a medium-range anti-aircraft missile created in Italy in the 80s. The missile design is based on the American RIM-7E Sea Sparrow.

The missile has a semi-active radar.

The range is 35 km. Target operational altitude – 8000 m. Flight speed – 1324 m/s. The weight of the warhead amounts to 30 kg.

It is not known what kind of launchers Spain is planning to transfer to Ukraine. Over the past 40 years, the country has purchased 250 different air defense systems based on the Italian Aspide missile. They were part of the Skyguard anti-aircraft missile systems and subsequently the upgraded Skydor.

The newest Aspide-2000 were acquired in 1997-1999.
