Providing Ukraine with several HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems in the last tranche of defense assistance, this is just a starting point. The US will continue to supply whatever it takes to win against Russian aggression.
This was announced by US Deputy Secretary of Defense for Political Affairs Colin Kohl.
“We have completed the ‘initial’ tranche of HIMARS systems, and as we speak now, Ukrainians are completing their training,” a Pentagon spokesman said.
According to him, the US defense department will soon expect the introduction of multiple launch rocket systems received by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Kol confirmed the US commitment to continue deliveries of these systems and ammunition to Ukraine.
Briefly about HIMARS
HIMARS is an American high-mobility rocket artillery system developed in the late 90s, which is mounted on a wheeled chassis.
HIMARS carries six multiple rocket launchers or one MGM-140 ATACMS missile on a five-ton truck. The system was designed as a small, mobile MLRS with shoot-and-run capability.
The system is being transported on a C-130 aircraft. It is produced by one of the divisions of Lockheed Martin.
We previously reported that President Volodymyr Zelensky said that The United States has confirmed at various levels that modern HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems are being sent to Ukraine.
Besides, the US Ambassador allowed the use of HIMARS at the discretion of the Armed Forces.
