As of 21 December 2022, we have delivered approximately 5,500 NLAW anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. We do not comment on future plans for donations of military aid for operational security reasons.

No new NLAW missiles were delivered to the British Army in 2022. However, as announced by the Defence Secretary on 7 December 2022, the UK signed a contract with Saab and Thales for several thousand NLAW units which will be delivered to the UK between 2024-2026. This is in addition to an earlier delivery of around 500 units to be delivered in 2023.
