MLRS Himars


American M142 Himars have been in Ukraine since July 20 - three days before the official announcement

The American MLRS M142 Himars were adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine a week ago.

A number of Ukrainian sources claim that the American M142 Himars multiple launch rocket systems have actually been in Ukraine not since June 23, as Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov assured earlier, but since June 20. Moreover, by this time, the complexes had already been put into service and advanced to the southern and eastern parts of Ukraine.

The source claims that on June 17 the complexes arrived in Ukraine through the Polish border, after which they were placed at one of the facilities in the western part of the country, from where, subsequently, they moved to the Odessa and Donetsk regions.

Despite the absence of any official statements from the Russian Ministry of Defense regarding the possible use of these weapons, the Pentagon announced that the weapons supplied by the United States had successfully proven themselves. This indicates that heavy American MLRS have already received repeated use.

"Everything points to [Ukrainian forces] using them very well," a senior U.S. Department of Defense official told reporters.- сообщает American edition of The National News.

At the moment, another group of Ukrainian military is being trained - according to a number of sources, we are talking about 50 specialists, who will receive 4 more Himars heavy MLRS by mid-July
