A Harpoon anti-ship missile launcher that was recently supplied by the US to Ukraine had been destroyed in a pinpoint strike by the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on July 20.
“High-precision weapons of the Russian Aerospace Forces have destroyed US-made Harpoon missile launcher near Usatovo, Odessa Region,” ministry spokesman Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov said during his daily briefing.
The Harpoon is a sea-skimming anti-ship missile that is equipped with a radar altimeter and a GPS-aided inertial navigation system, or INS. The missile locks on its target with an active radar seeker. When launched from surface, the missile has a range of 124 to 280 kilometers depending on the version. The missile is armed with a 221 kg penetration high-explosive blast warhead.
Ukraine received an unknown number of Harpoon missiles and launchers from the Denmark and the US between May and June. During the same period, it was reported that the Netherlands and the UK will supply addition missiles.
Two Harpoon missiles were allegedly used by Ukraine to sunk the Russian Navy’s tugboat Spasatel Vasily Bekh on June 17.
The Russian military has already destroyed some of Ukraine’s newly-acquired Harpoon missiles and launchers. On July 8, a pinpoint missile strike on Odessa wiped out two Harpoon missile launchers. Later on July 16, a another missile strike on Odessa destroyed a large warehouse where Harpoon missiles were stored.
The Harpoon is a highly-effective system and this why the Russian military has been working nonstop to hunt down the missiles and launchers being delivered to Ukraine.

those half wit amerikants enjoy 7$ gas
It’s rather funny that Jen’s cannot even verify his father :)
dont be mean to the poor little screwed up bastard
Prolong the war and weaken Russia in the process will bring a bad news to US-led NATO since the Russians would be left with no viable options once it’s completely depleted of conventional warheads but to use the stockpiles of nukes.
That would be M.A.D.
This is what I was trying to explain to some Mutt-erfickers in the other forum – it’s impossible to ‘win’ a war against Russia and stay alive. If they , I mean the Kreml, will one day be pushed to a corner where they only have the choice “capitulate or die”, they would choose the 3rd option: to push the red button, and if this happens it’s bye bye NATO, bye bye USA and bye bye EU.
Not true. Russians, tired of poverty will take all putinoids and soviets. They will form new government , democratic and open to the West…
Actually the truth is that the Western realm is a huge neo-Marxist camp, a real Zionist Gulag! There is nothing to envy or feel attracted to…
And sell their kids to gay pedo orgy clubs and satanists for adrenochrome, satanic rituals sacrifices and body parts. Dream on, they wont buy it. Should your dream of Putin going occur, the Russias will make the US DISAPPEAR.
All those fuckers probably have bunkers stock with luxury to last for multiple life times.
My reply scrubbed yet again.
Not going to happen. You see, unlike America, they did not close down, or sell off all their Industrial Capacity. They have Modernized, and Expanded their Industrial Base. Their supplies are essentially endless. Russia has no NEED to use any nukes. They are easily WINNING using just Reserves !
I see verification that senile moron nazi Jens paroled from mental institution
You never mind when Ukraine makes a claim.
There’s plenty more where that came from… USA has an UNLIMITED Arsenal Of Democracy… heheheh
Every day one or more of those state of the art, super expensive, NATO weapons systems gets blown to bits. When will these idiots learn? Putin is destroying NATO’s ability to fight by destroying their weapons in Ukraine in a piecemeal fashion.
In WWII the USA became best friends with Japan. All it took was two bombs. Russia should become friends with the Ukraine in the same way. Having a good friend would be nice.
Hahaha great!!!! Keep blowing these fuckin things sky high!!!!
It seems US and nato weapons have a very short use-by-date.
Scrap business will be brisk.
Russia should instigate a NO FLY ZONE over Ukraine and any NATO aircraft will be shot down as soon as it enters the NO FLY ZONE AIRSPACE, also take Odessa and CUT OFF SEA ACCESS TO UKRAINE this will leave just land routes then which should be destroyed AS SOON AS THEY CROSS INTO UKRAINE and not wait for them to be delivered BUT destroy the NATO delivery vehicles and the NATO drivers. =Z=
States supplying these missiles should automatically become viable targets , they are war participants.
Obsolete Systems from the 1970’s. Yes, Pentagram give away your junk.
