The network discusses the hit of American HIMARS installations to the RF Armed Forces

It became known that in the course of a Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, one American wheeled launcher M142 "Hymars" (HIMARS) of 227-mm caliber, combining MLRS and a fuel dispenser, recently transferred by the United States to Ukraine, fell into the hands of the RF Armed Forces. This was reported on July 15 by the online edition "Russian Spring" and the Telegram channel "Military correspondents of the Russian Spring", referring to their own sources and publications on the network, where there is a discussion of resonant information.

According to the mentioned media resources, it is not yet clear whether the indicated missile system was captured in combat or acquired for money from the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as stated earlier. It is also unknown what state she is in, where it happened and when. It is only stated that it is already on the territory of Russia.

It should be noted that if this information is true, then this threatens the Americans with certain problems. Especially if the Hymars got it intact, with all the equipment and a set of precision-guided munitions. Russian specialists will study Technology and will be able to develop something of their own, as well as means of counteraction.

However, unfortunately, no videos or photographs obtained by any means of the M142 were provided to confirm the above information. This is strange, especially when it comes to her being on the territory of the Russian Federation. The same is true for information about hit into the hands of the Russians a pair of French self-propelled artillery installations "Caesar" (Caesar) caliber 155-mm, which were allegedly sold out servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and have been at Uralvagonzavod for about a month. Since then, the Russian military, the media and the enterprise itself have not published a single picture of these self-propelled guns. Hopefully things will clear up soon with both Caesar and HIMARS.

It should be added that on July 15, the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, told the media about the receipt by the Armed Forces of Ukraine of a batch of M270 MLRS universal tracked missile systems of 227-mm caliber from the United States. These launchers use the same ammunition as the Hymars, only more of them (two interchangeable packages of six ammunition each, instead of one similar package for the M142).

    Are our media also fake or what? Why ask? For jingoism, apparently. If there is information and facts about these Himers being captured by us, then show and prove it. And just verbiage is not worth doing.

      then show and prove

      No one is obliged to prove anything to you, iksperd couch. Moreover, the state of uncertainty due to understatement affects the leadership of the Pentagon in the direction Moscow needs - God knows what is going on with these MLRS and whether it is worth fussing in the direction of changing the software.

        You might think that the Americans do not know the situation in Ukraine and how things are with such systems ...

    even if this is true, then the installation is "just" a cab. How much can you get out of it? A rocket would.

      Modern weapons are a complex thing. It is necessary to study both the launcher and the ammunition. And according to rumors, the missiles also got to our specialists.

        This is already a system of high-precision MLRS weapons with reference to a network-centric information field (satellite and other intelligence about the target in real time, etc.) What ours are only ranting about so far ...
