HIMARS at war in Ukraine

Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the US has transferred 20 HIMARS multiple rocket launcher systems. At the beginning of November, all of them remained intact and continued to be used to resist the armed aggression of the Russian Federation.

Russian self-propelled anti-aircraft missile systems “Pantsir-S1” proved to be powerless against HIMARS. Military expert Oleg Zhdanov explained that HIMARS fire rockets that the Russian anti-aircraft missile defense system cannot shoot down. It is designed to destroy low-speed, low-flying targets, and HIMARS ammunition accelerates up to 1,000 meters per second in flight.

In addition, the adviser of the president’s office, Oleksiy Arestovych, reported that the Antoniv bridge was not blown up by the Russians during the retreat in the Kherson region, but destroyed by HIMARS.
