Poland will purchase 486 HIMARS units from the United States

Polish authorities have agreed on a deal to purchase 486 HIMARS multiple launch rocket system launchers from the United States. This was announced by the country's Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak. According to him, deliveries should begin at the end of 2025.

We plan to begin deliveries at the end of 2025

– Blaszczak said in an interview with national radio station RMF.

At the same time, the Polish Minister of Defense added that the contract also implies the transfer of technologies production.

Let us remind you that the HIMARS MLRS is a highly mobile multiple launch rocket system. It was developed in the USA in 1996–2000 and has been produced since 2003. The real high point of this system was the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict. After it began, the United States began to supply them en masse to the Ukrainian army.

Using the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system, the Ukrainian Armed Forces successfully hit command posts and ammunition depots of the Russian Armed Forces located at a great distance from the contact line. The Russian army announced a reward of one million rubles for the destruction or capture of the launcher. However, no such cases have been recorded so far.

The main problem for the Russian Armed Forces is the high mobility of the HIMARS launcher. Having fired a salvo at the intended target, it promptly changes its location. The firing range of HIMARS is up to 480 kilometers, depending on the missiles used.

    Unfortunately, thanks to these installations, the Armed Forces of “lordly” Poland acquire very great capabilities for high-precision destruction of various targets.

    half a thousand MLRS hitting half a thousand km. they are not purchasing for defense, Poland is being prepared for war with Russia - they are next “to the last Pole”... (the crests are running out). But I think that knowing how many and what kind of weapons Poland has, the war will be different and strikes will have to be delivered not only to those whom NATO will force to do this, but also to the “Head Office in the USA,” because after the Poles and the Baltic states, “ cauldron of war" the Bulgarians and Romanians will be thrown, followed by the Czechs and Slovaks. The United States does not feel sorry for the “second-class” NATO members; that’s why they have been nurturing them for 30 years. ... As they say - “The bull has grown up.”
