USA impressed by HIMARS success in Ukraine and intends to produce 500 more units

The United States, seeing the effective use of the HIMARS MLRS by the Ukrainian armed forces, plans to seriously increase the production of these weapons for deliveries to Ukraine. This, in particular, reports the publication Business Insider.


According to journalists, the Pentagon is looking for companies that could establish the production of these multiple launch rocket systems. The US military plans to annually produce from 24 to 96 M142 HIMARAS from 2024 to 2028 financial year (in total, according to these programs, from 120 to 480 guns will be produced).

Currently, the release of these MLRS is engaged in the company Lockheed Martin.

Meanwhile, on September 13, the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired at Lisichansk in the LPR from HIMARS rocket launchers. In total, four rockets were fired at the city. As a result of the actions of Ukrainian militants, two people were killed and one was injured.

    We even have the best systems in terms of performance characteristics - Tornado, etc. The problem is exactly, here is the main direction in the development of all fire systems. Accuracy implies systems for finding and determining a target by various means from UAVs to satellite in real time, network-centric data transmission to control centers and instant decision-making with fire damage by high-precision long-range weapons. So far, we do not have such a complete interconnected system en masse. This is not news, but the RF Ministry of Defense and the military-industrial complex have not been stingy with promises for a long time - but things are still there

      And what prevents Moscow from purchasing the Polonaise MLRS from Minsk, which surpasses HIMARS in all characteristics (including accuracy)? Or is he afraid that the gilding will peel off the crown?

    Maybe it's time to make a radioactive sanitary zone from Lviv to, say, Warsaw ...? So that not a single person, let alone a barrel, gets into Ukraine anymore ....

    As Dzerzhinsky once said - This is not your merit, but our flaw!
    Why does Russia still not have its own Elon Musk, who will start shooting down Starling satellites over the theater of operations? If the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not do this?
