From ammunition to tanks, the United States is among the Western allies that have provided solid military support to Ukraine since Russia launched its “special military operations” against the country more than a year ago.

One of the arms sent to aid the defense strength of the Ukrainian troops at the frontline is the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) II, developed by BAE Systems. However, it wasn’t until recently that Ukraine reportedly used the state-of-the-art 70-millimeter laser-guided rocket system to strike back against the advancing Russian army.

A video surfaced online last Thursday showing Ukraine’s new 37th Marine Brigade firing the APKWS vertically from a Humvee-mounted launcher towards Russian targets, including buildings and a tower-mounted sensor, in Kherson Oblast, where most of the significant campaigns take place. In recent months, Ukraine has notably lost a substantial amount of military equipment in its southern region, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), surface-to-air (SAM), armored vehicles, and artillery guns. Russia also claimed several dozen Ukrainian soldier casualties last Friday.
