The first units of HIMARS multiple rocket launchers have already arrived in Ukraine as part of the U.S. security assistance.

That’s according to Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov, Ukrinform reported citing the minister’s Twitter page.

“HIMARS have arrived to Ukraine. Thank you to my U.S.colleague and friend @SecDef Lloyd J. Austin III for these powerful tools!” the defense chief tweeted.

The minister also suggested that summer “will be hot for russian occupiers.”

“And the last one for some of them,” Reznikov added.

Earlier, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense for Political Affairs Colin Kahl said that providing Ukraine with several HIMARS multiple rocket launchers as part of the latest tranche of defense aid is only a starting point as the U.S. will continue to provide everything necessary to prevail against Russian aggression.

The U.S. administration has earlier announced that it will provide Ukraine with American high-mobility artillery missile systems HIMARS with ammunition that can hit targets at a 70 km range instead of 300 km, although Ukraine has requested longer-range missiles.

HIMARS has huge RCS. HIMARS Ukraine got are export downgraded which only have 30 km range basic rockets. Mi-28 mast mounted radar detects and tracks HIMARS from 50 km away and smashes HIMARS using Hermes BVR air to air / air to ground missiles.

They will use it against Russian ethnics of Ukraine first and if allowed, they would bomb Russian territory close to the borders.

This is a threat to Russians of Ukraine more than anything else.

HIMARS is no threat to Russia. Even if American sends every single HIMARS it has to Donbas, they will all be blown up by Mi-28. Artillery without air defense is just a sitting duck.

Not only does that video not have HIMARS, it misses the target as well. Stop spreading Russian disinformation
Calm down. Go on the web and see the countless articles popping up in the last few hours.

It is not an impossibility and I am not pushing anyone's disinformation. The purpose of the forum is to discuss various news items. Hopefully you realized that when you joined.

It’s Russian disinformation and no HIMARS were destroyed.

The ones Ukraine got were pulled out of service from US inventory. So I don't think it is a case of export variants. It is the type of munitions that the US is sending with the units that only have a range of 70km to ensure that Ukrainians don't hit deeper inside of Russia to provoke a bigger conflagration with the Russians.
