The report stated that the shipment will also include additional rounds for US-made multiple rocket systems. This is in addition to what Ukraine received previously from the UK or US. According to the source, this package will also include equipment and vehicles for soldiers.

Last week, President Obama asked Congress for $11.7 billion in additional funding to support military assistance to Ukraine. This includes $4.5 Billion for equipment and arms acquisitions. 

During the conflict with Russia, the US was the largest sponsor of Ukraine’s military. The Pentagon sent heavy weapons to Kiev in the form of high mobility artillery rocket systems (HIMARS), combat drones and M777 howitzers.
