Armed Forces of Ukraine boasted of the work of the MLRS HIMARS in the Kherson direction

Ten days ago, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine informed the public that the Armed Forces of Ukraine received from the United States multiple launch rocket systems on an American-made M142 HIMARS wheeled chassis and they are already используются in the Donbass against the RF Armed Forces and their allies from the LNR and the DNR. At the same time, from the office of the President of Ukraine promised the defeat of the Russian army in 20 days, if Kyiv has only a few dozen of these MLRS. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine boasted on the Web about the work of these MLRS in the Kherson direction.

The frames of the first video documented how a battery of four Hymars moved along a public highway, and then one of the MLRS fired, releasing missiles.

The second video shows batch reloading of American MLRS transferred to Ukraine. Loading a replacement ammo pack into the launcher takes only 30 minutes.

It should be added that the Armed Forces of Ukraine now have 8 HIMARS units with ground-to-ground missiles of the GMLRS type. These rockets with a cluster warhead are capable of flying at a distance of up to 70 km.

Note that the M142 is a universal launcher. It can be used to launch ground-based AIM-120 AMRAAM anti-aircraft missiles, remote surface mining using AT-2 ammunition, and launch tactical missiles of the ATACMS family.

    The thing is, of course, serious. Judging by the performance characteristics, it is used for use on compact targets (6 missiles cover an area of ​​​​6,7 hectares, unlike the Tornado-S, which covers 67 hectares with 12 missiles. That is, approximately 1 missile per 1 hectare against 1 missile per 5 hectares of our MLRS ). I think the Russian military industry would not mind digging into the giblets of this system (I hope ours will find an opportunity to deliver this tsatsk where necessary). The possibility of batch loading is also useful. In a word, there is something for designers to smoke at their leisure.

      This is not a toy. If you pick it up on GPS, it will not be comme il faut. The maneuvers of our equipment will be useless, the accuracy of defeat is 1 meter. RPK "Pantsir" may not help. It was impossible to allow their deployment by crests. And this thing can shoot down Caliber and Sushki. Our technology will have to hide behind a smoke screen, or shoot down GPS.

        How is it impossible if there was a contract. They are Ukrainians this, and Russians are something to them. Time is money. Strike iron without leaving the cash register.

    Well, let's see how quickly crests will abandon these installations, when they will drape again and how long they will last ...

    And we are pulling strikes on Kyiv, apparently waiting for when there will be more Himers and ruins will remain from Donbass, and border Russia will also get
