Crimea attacked by 12 ATACMS tactical missiles

Yesterday night there was a massive missile attack on the airfield in Dzhankoy, which is located in Crimea. According to, the attack was carried out using ATACMS operational-tactical missiles, probably launched from the Kherson region.

The attack was carried out in two waves: the first wave consisted of seven missiles, presumably equipped with cluster warheads, the second - of five missiles. In total, according to Mikhail Zvinchuk, 12 missiles were fired, which became the largest attack carried out against Crimea using ATACMS tactical missiles.

The MGM-140A missiles used for the attack have a range of up to 165 kilometers, which allows them to reach the target from Kherson, while the MGM-140B versions have an even longer range - up to 300 kilometers, thereby increasing the geographic radius of the strike.

In addition to military equipment, an American RQ-4B drone, which patrolled the airspace south of Crimea, was used to monitor the progress of the attack. This apparently made it possible to coordinate missile strikes more accurately.
