HIMARS, which fired at the bridge in Kherson, was destroyed

A video has appeared on the Web showing the destruction of an American-made M142 Haymars wheeled launcher (HIMARS) near the village of Stepnoye in the Mykolaiv region. This weapon system, recently delivered from the United States, combining MLRS and a fuel dispenser, fired at bridges in the Kherson region.

After another strike on the Antonovsky automobile bridge across the Dnieper in Kherson, the Ukrainian military settled in a forest belt not far from the mentioned settlement. They thought that they were well disguised and would calmly wait for the delivery of ammunition at this point in order to continue shelling. However, a Russian drone detected them and, as a result of counter-battery actions, the launcher was hit.

In addition, the day before, the Ministry of Defense reported in its report that during the counter-battery fight, a platoon of the Alder MLRS and HIMARS of the Ukrainian army was also destroyed near the village of Pyatigorskoye in the Kharkiv region. Thus, according to the statements of the Russian military department, the total number of destroyed HIMARS reached 6 units. At the same time, Washington handed over 16 units of such weapons systems to Kyiv.

Ukrainian authorities and the military traditionally deny the loss of HIMARS. However, the citizens of Ukraine themselves drew attention to the fact that a week ago the Armed Forces of Ukraine smartly reported about 9-10 destroyed warehouses and bases of the RF Armed Forces per day, and now they inform only about 4-5.

As for the Antonovsky automobile bridge, which was damaged as a result of shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, because of which traffic was stopped on it, its restoration is already underway. According to Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Marat Khusnullin, the bridge will be repaired in the coming days and traffic will resume on it.

    Himmars some kind of super invincible weapon? It is unlikely. They said the same about Javelins and Bayraktars, the result - Bayraktars "ended", and there are plenty of Javelins and NLOW as trophies of the allied forces ..

      So that you understand, one tube from Javelin or NLOW, which Russian "journalists" love to demonstrate so much, is three of your compatriots, whose happy families have become owners of a new fret.

        What kind of meme is a stupid new fret, if you count in frets, then only 2-3 pieces are obtained for wounding, and if God forbid a person dies, then there is such compensation that you can buy 10 of them, if in money then in Moscow and the Moscow region give 5 and 10 lyams respectively, and in other areas 3 or 7 (wound and death)

        Yes, and the power of the Jevelins is greatly exaggerated, in the conditions of the training ground in static conditions, only 3 out of 11 targets were hit, and in battle when the tremor, when they shoot, go cock it correctly, but hit it, it’s not an automatic machine that pressed and flew, it takes time for training, plus the Ukrainians learn to use them on a piece of paper, with all the consequences, there is a video where they took a position with the Ukrainians and there are a lot of these trophy jewels, it turned out that no one knows how to use them stupidly

    Where can you see that it's himars? The more such cheap videos, the less confidence in the information.

      Can you tell a military KAMAZ from a Khimars, a view from the top? But this is so, by the way. The quality of the video here is really bad. In the cart, the same video is in quality. There is no double interpretation.

          But I don’t know who was sitting there, and it doesn’t matter. It’s not about that. But about the fact that “In the war, everyone lies and on both sides.”

    without heavy bombers, it is unlikely that it will be possible to eliminate all lovers of shelling bridges and nuclear power plants. Ours, on the other hand, needs to put the old air bombs somewhere - so they would let them in for carpet bombing on possible caches of Salonazi launchers. All the same, it is necessary to write off and dispose of old bombs ... so at least do it with benefit - "plow" the forests and ravines where Salonazis are hiding with bombs.

      You did not think that the US reconnaissance satellites immediately hiccup the takeoff of our heavy missile-carrying bombers! And they pass information to Khokhls! Therefore, we use long-range missiles from them, without entering the zone of operation of the Khokhlyatskaya air defense. Therefore, the use of old bombs and carpet bombing is not an option! crests, unfortunately, still have such air defense systems as the S-300. And for them, our bombers-missile carriers are a good target.

    Yeah. Until a new chimera arrives. And there is a new hunting. Well, how long are you going to play this burden?

      Until infrared thermal imagers are put on drones, it will be difficult to catch these American installations. As early as 1 MV, comfrey trees were highlighted from airplanes at night.

        Our UAVs have thermal imagers. The problem is that crests are far from fools. They know how to hide technology. Moreover, now they are praying for the HIMARS installations as for God.

    I hope that it was really the HIMARS installation that was destroyed, and not an ordinary cargo KAMAZ. Personally, I don’t have much confidence in the videos published by the RF Ministry of Defense.

      There is a video and photo in the cart, there this installation is torn to shreds, but the crests immediately hide the wreckage, so there are very few photos of the broken Hymers.

    Not many people know, but the Death Star was destroyed on the video, it’s just that the Ministry of War of the Russian Federation is embarrassed to admit it, they had to invent that it was HIMARS.
