Ukraine Releases First Footage Of HIMARS Rocket Launchers In Action

U.S. Army Sgt. Jacob Ramirez, a multiple launch rocket system (MLRS/HIMARS) crewmember, assigned to 3rd Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment (HIMARS), raises a M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, to simulate accuracy of live rounds, at Fort A.P. Hill Landing Zone, Virginia, July 20, 2020. (U.S. Army Photo by Spc. Daniel J. Alkana, 22nd Mobile Public Affairs Detachment) (Pfc. Daniel Alkana)

On June 25, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense released a video showing M142 HIMARS multiple rocket launchers recently supplied by the US in action for the first time.

The short video shows two HIMARS, High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, taking position in an unspecified part of Ukraine, then firing just three rockets. The Ukrainian MoD didn’t provide any information on the nature of the target or clarify if the strike was successful.

Kiev forces received the first batch of HIMARS launchers early on in the week. The batch is a part of four launchers the US promised to supply on June 1.

The HIMARS supplied to Ukraine are said to be armed with M30/M31 series GMLRS precision-guided rockets, which have a range of more than 70 kilometers. GMLRS rockets are guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation system and a have a circular error probable of one meter. Each launcher can be loaded with a pod of six rockets.

As a part of a new military aid package announced by the US on June 23, Ukraine will receive four addition HIMARS launchers. The country will also receive other systems that can fire GMLRS rockets. The UK will provide three M270B1 MRLS launchers, while Germany will supply three M270A1 MARS II launchers.

The HIMARS system is highly effective, especially when armed with GMLRS precision-guided rockets. However, like any other weapon system it can be detected and destroyed.

The Russian military will likely use its air defense means to limit the effectiveness of GMLRS rockets, and its counter-battery capabilities, which include counter-battery radars, reconnaissance drones and precision fire, to neutralize HIMARS launchers.

As for deterrence, Russia has already warned Ukraine that it will respond to any attack on its territory with Western-supplied weapons like the HIMARS by destroyed “decision making centers” in Kiev and other areas.

The nice thing about this war for Russia is that the west are opening up their weapons cupboards, exposing what is in them in detail, and depleting the stock. Russia has the next ‘challenge’ in the war, and I guess Ukraine will just need some other type of weapon to win, after this challenge has been met in full. Ukraine is ruining the west’s economics, it is killing 80% of its soldiers and is squandering 5 billion a month. Russia is grinding, the only open question is how long the west will keep blinding itself to the real costs of their moneyed elite engaging in historical games of empires, while their people get hungrier, colder and have their western living standards trashed. It’s Ok for the monied elite if food and other items cost 100 times more! Not so for the ordinary western people!

The Winter approaches for the EU and a financial Winter is already upon the USA and UK. It’s time for Russia to destroy Kiev and it’s command structures now. Obliterate these Nazi scum sooner rather than later, so that the true Ukrainians and Russian people can get on with a decent existence, free from Nazis and Zelensky’s USA driven puppets.

Will certainly be interesting if Russia surrounds Kiev or Odessa and only allows certain goods in based on a sanctions list!

All the old school commentators here posted many times that the head of the snake should be cut off asap, so we all agree with you. Cutting it off would reduce the death of many foot soldiers and officers of the AFU. Because the war would be ‘de facto’ over. Why the Russian side does not do it is a mystery. And pls dont come with “The RF does not want to create a Martyr” stuff.

Agree, Russians were smarter in recent Kazachstan action, appeared to go to the “head”- finished in one week. Way back ditto in Czechoslovakia. Very early a.m. appx. 12 planes landed in Prague’s airport. Some people were loaded and later in the morning, people were told that CS government “has meeting in Moscow”; Soviet tanks appeared in Prague (alas Ukrainian), it was sad, but no shooting, no mass graves. It appears now that Russian military might be controlled by the same western leaning “liberals” as Russian bankers, i.e. Nabiullina (lost RF reserves in London), Dimitriev (Russian Investment Bank, came from N.Y. Goldman Sachs) Gref (Sberbank), etc. Yes, “a village a week” is somewhat successful, the problem is that only in Novorossija there is several hundreds of those villages. Let’s say Donetsk & Luhansk will get completed. Does anyone believe that peace will follow? “Partizans” for actions in saved territories are already trained. HIMARS ready now, to be placed on the future border?

The whole mechanism to destroy a society is to flood it with guns and let the locals kill each other. If necessary, one or more local thugs (Zelensky) are supported by the puppeteers (NATO). US is following what it practices at home.

There is a whole sociology about the prevalence of alcohol and gun shops in black neighborhoods across America.

Ivan

Now, who would want to do that, and how do they obtain such universal leverage? Its a complete mystery.

RACIST ZIONISTS STOP ORTHODOX UKRAINIANS FROM ENTERING OCCUPIED PALESTINE

The Israeli Interior Ministry announced in March that Ukrainians visiting Israel would have to fill out a special form before entering the country, while also setting a cap on Orthodox Slavic non-Jewish refugees. Kiev called the move “an unfriendly step.” The Israeli move is an indication of its distrust of Orthodox Slavic Ukrainians who are prone to pro-Palestinian sympathies.

Russia has electronic intelligence which calculate the exact location of missile launches and use Iskander missile systems to destroy them. This American move will escalate the war and Russia will use more deadly weapons to strike back.

Ukrainians should be smart enough to move them after each use. HIMARS appears to be a reasonably effective system, though expensive. The West is not sending very many though and I’ve heard nothing about a portable air defense system to protect them.

JXSN88

They shoot 6 missiles in sequence-then reload. Hiding them is not easy.

2be10

Very outrageous pitches, full of smoke. Forced to use them at night 40 km or 80 km from the front. Without the need for radar or electronics, it is easy to locate them with the marking of two observers.

I saw a Hymars on Ebay. It was a Buyer Collect Only. The seller was in LVOV .

Z FOR VICTORY

I’m pretty sure that the ones which escape destruction, will recieve the same treatment as the captured French Cesars. Nothing better than being able to examine the enemy equipment up close while figuring out it’s weak spots and operating systems.

This knowledge can be later used to the Russian advantage, as far as jamming of frying it’s electronics with least effort possible and/or testing it’s capabilities.

This will be possible very soon, as the Ukro-Nazi morale is deteriorating very fast…rapid fleeing will soon be their only option left. That is how this equipment will get abandoned.

Unspecified part of Ukraine as in the Putin cockroaches have no fucking idea where they are. The shitty Russian army couldn’t capture Kiev and topple Zelensky when Ukrainian forces had no artillery. I’m not exactly sure how the Putin terrorists expect to capture any territory now that Ukrainian forces have artillery. Maybe they’ll cook up another moronic story to justify their delusion.

Haha! HIMARS is an absurd copy of BM-27 Uragan. Let me show you why. As for a raw rocket, HIMARS is no way to be comparable to Uragan, much less Smerch in terms of accuracy and range. As for inteligent bullet, ATACMS is much inferior in comparison with Iskander-M. Understood?
