Ukrainian Ground Forces are taking advantage of all the weaponry supplied by ally nations, including the HIMARS (specifically provided by the US). But, as HIMARS proved to be Russia’s biggest threat on the ground, the Russian military is reportedly looking for ways to counter this high-capacity missile launcher.
About two days ago, Ukraine targeted various regions in Kherson to push Russian forces out. With the help of HIMARS, the Russian base has been hit in Chornobaivka, according to the Ukrainian website Obozrevatel. Ukrainian forces also used the HIMARS to target an ammunition warehouse in Berislav.
“The results of the fire control of the main transport routes in the occupied territories show that movement on the railway bridge across the Dnipro River is impossible,” Operation Command South reported.
On the other hand, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu claims they have destroyed the HIMARS after thousands of Russian forces were deployed on Feb. 24. But Pentagon said Tuesday that these claims are false.
