Ben Wallace has just announced in the House of Commons, that Ukraine has received over three and a half thousand NLAW missiles and more are on the way.

This has appeared in the last few minutes on the Wikipedia entry for the Starstreak missile.

On March 9, 2022, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said that the United Kingdom was looking into delivering Starstreak missiles to Ukraine, to prevent Russian air supremacy amid the Russo-Ukrainian War.

Both NLAW and Starstreak missiles are made by Thales in Belfast.
