The Russian army destroyed 2 installations of the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system in the Bakhmut area

Two M142 Himars installations were destroyed in the area of ​​the settlement. Malotaranovka.

As a result of a high-precision strike by the Russian military, in the area of ​​N. p. Malotaranovka destroyed two Himars M142 mobile launchers and two American ammunition depots. Information on this subject was confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry.

“As a result of a missile attack by the RF Armed Forces in the area of ​​the settlement. Malotaranovka (DPR) destroyed 2 HIMARS launchers delivered from the USA and 2 ammunition depots for them”, - reported in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The settlement of Malotaranovka is located on the territory of the Donetsk region and is currently really controlled by the Ukrainian military. Previously, strikes were already carried out from this direction on the territories of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions. However, by the current hour, there is no documentary evidence of the destruction of such weapons.

A number of questions are raised by the presence in Malotaranovka of only two branches of the M142 Himars, since earlier it became known that the Ukrainian military had formed a battery of four launchers, and, quite remarkable, a few days ago these systems were in the Zaporozhye region.

At the same time this morning, n.p. Khanzhenkovo ​​was hit at least once with the use of the M142 Himars MLRS. This, taking into account the range, makes it possible to assert that the American systems were indeed located in the Bakhmut area.
