Russian military destroyed MLRS launchers in Ukraine for the first time

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reports on the destruction of MLRS MLRS installations.

As a result of mass strikes with high-precision weapons, two mobile launchers M270 MLRS or similar were destroyed at once in Krivoy Rog, as well as an ammunition load of approximately 70 missiles of various types. This is not the first time American-standard MLRS missiles have been destroyed, however, in the case of MLRS mobile launchers, this is the first known case reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense. Moreover, it is reported that at least four more launchers of this type were damaged, which, given the limited number of such weapons in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, creates serious problems for the Ukrainian army.

“According to confirmed information, as a result of a ground-based high-precision weapon strike at a missile and artillery weapons depot in one of the workshops of the ArcelorMittal metallurgical plant in the city of Krivoy Rog, more than 70 missiles of the HIMARS multiple launch rocket system, two MLRS launchers were destroyed "MLRS". Four more installations of this type were critically damaged., - reports the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in the report.

The Ukrainian side does not officially comment on the information about the destruction of the MLRS complexes, however, the failure of six launchers at once could become critical for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
