The Sky Sabre missile system can target fighter jets or incoming smart bombs and will be kept in Poland with British troops to operate it.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace announced the deployment of the Sky Sabre missile system while on a trip to Warsaw to meet his Polish counterpart on Thursday.

The deployment will help shore up NATO’s eastern flank bordering Russia in a defensive measure as Moscow entered its fourth week of the invasion into Ukraine.

Britain has previously said the missile defence system has the capability to hit a tennis ball-sized object traveling at the speed of sound.
