Armed Forces of Ukraine used precision-guided munitions with a range of up to 130 km

Evidence appeared on social networks that the Ukrainian armed forces began to use the Alder / Alder-M MLRS with a range of up to 130 km.

This multiple launch rocket system is an upgraded version of the Soviet Smerch MLRS. Alder uses high-precision corrective ammunition with a range of up to 130 km and an accuracy of 10-20 meters. The use of 300-mm projectiles is indicated, in particular, by the operation of the corrective engines immediately after the launch of the rocket.

Earlier, the deputy head of the People's Militia of the DPR, Eduard Basurin, mentioned that HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems with a range of about 300 km had arrived in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, noted in an interview with Rossiya Segodnya that the geography of the special military operation in Ukraine will expand depending on the range of Western weapons arriving to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Thus, Moscow seeks to ensure the security of the territory of Russia and the people's republics of the east of Ukraine.

At the same time, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said during a meeting on the defense of Ukraine that Washington will soon supply Kyiv with four more HIMARS systems - they will be included in the next package of military assistance to this country.

The United States has been sending long-range rocket launchers to Ukraine since June 1. Then the HIMARS MLRS were included in the $700 million aid package.

    So why does Russia need its own fleet of Tupolev bombers? Take them out and destroy the Ukrainian artillery. Bomb from a great height.

        This is how some officials and generals were filmed after the initial failure of the SVO, this is called not fulfilling tasks and plans, juggling reports, etc. But what can I say, not a single decree or decree of the president has been implemented, remember the dates and rainbow pictures of presidential decrees ... The same is true in the RF Ministry of Defense with weapons ...

      To do this, there are high-precision weapons and loitering ammunition, capable of tracking down their targets for hours and suddenly attacking them when they are detected, and now obvious gaps in our state are becoming obvious. the arms program and in our defense industry, which failed to master in time and launch mass production in mass quantities of all types of UAVs so urgently needed for our army, including kamikaze drones, and the loitering ammunition mentioned above, here we are clearly losing so far, we urgently need to correct the situation, sway and think for a long time, we just don’t have time anymore, this should have been done yesterday.

        Once he served as a topographer in the missile unit of operational-tactical missiles. An artillery reconnaissance battalion was based nearby. Somehow they worked together with their topographers to test satellite navigation (early 70s). At the same time, they had artillery reconnaissance exercises. This time they used sound and seismic reconnaissance. And there is also optical (including with the use of UAVs), electronic and satellite. Loitering ammunition requires first reconnaissance of targets, and then a strike. And it doesn’t matter what type of artillery reconnaissance the target will be indicated from. So reconnaissance with UAVs, of course, is probably the most convenient, but reconnaissance was done without it, and even in the Great Patriotic War.

    There are factories that produce the installations themselves, ammunition, electronics.
    A few calibers and that's it.
    Perhaps that is why Yuzhmash was recently bombed. And soon in the morning, when the people are seated at their workplaces, something will fly to Kyiv, KB Luch (which is the main digger on this topic).

    Well, while in the Kremlin the hockey player was picking his nose, dill and pindocs did the job, and now it remains to wait until he arrives in a large city, maybe then "the one who hits first" will finally swell up

    At this rate, they will soon deploy ATACMS missiles as well. And I personally have no doubt that these missiles will appear sooner or later, if they have not already appeared among crests. The Yankees will have a hand in this.
    They will inflict, as they plan, a blow to the Crimea and at the same time to some border regions of Russia.
    And we will sit and express deep concern.
    We need to act hard and decisively! Already a long time ago - it was high time to bomb all the primary targets into the ground to the very ears!
