Hundreds of Ukrainian troops receive missile training from British Army.

MORE than 450 troops were taught how to use a range of weapons by the British Army, including the Multiple Launch Rocket Systems - which Britain is supplying to Ukraine.

Media were invited to Salisbury plain, in southern England, where the exercises were taking place.

The training is part of a wide-ranging international support package following Russia's invasion in February.

Captain James Oliphant of the Royal Artillery was involved in the three-week long training of the MLRS:

"At the end of the day, it's another component to their own balance, it's a force multiplier. Because it's a truck vehicle, their rocket systems are wheeled, it's going to give them more mobility, which is going to aid in their survivability. Naturally, it's an ammunition that's able to punch up to 84 kilometers."
