HIMARS Is Working: Ukrainian Soldiers Defeated Two Russian Command Posts

Multiple enemy military vehicles were destroyed.

Ukrainian defenders used American HIMARS multiple rocket launchers and successfully defeated two command posts of the Russian army.

The InformNapalm international intelligence community and the Special Operations Forces reported this.

Thus, the warriors managed to hit the command post of the 20th Army of the Western Military District of the Russian Armed Forces (military unit 89425, Voronezh), located in a school building in Izyum.

Also, the defenders of Ukraine destroyed the forward command post of the landing troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. According to the Special Operations Forces, the attack was carried out in Donbas. The scouts found an enemy column, numbering 6 Uragan MLRS, transport-loading vehicles, petrol tank vehicles, trucks, fire control vehicles, armoured personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles.

"The soldiers of the Special Operations Forces successfully aimed the artillery, corrected the fire of the Ukrainian guns and gave them an opportunity to smash the enemy vehicles to pieces," the report says.

HIMARS is an American high mobility artillery rocket system that was developed in the late 90s.

This MLRS is designed to destroy areas of concentration of artillery systems, air defence systems and fire support, trucks, combat vehicles and armoured personnel carriers, as well as to provide fire support to friendly units.

The system is designed to fire guided and unguided missiles. Maximum firing range is 300 km.

Ukraine has so far received missiles with a range of up to 80 km.

American long-range MLRS HIMARS are already involved in battles with the occupiers.

On June 23, Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov announced that HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems had arrived in Ukraine from the United States. The first handover, according to open data, included four MLRS units.

Washington announced the transfer of additional HIMARS to Ukraine on the same day.
