In the opinion of military observer Mikhail Khodarenok, given the fact that HIMARS is practically the only tool for combat operations on the Ukrainian side, the loss of such an arsenal looks more than significant.
Earlier, Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov reported the destruction of more than 300 rockets for HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems, as well as a large amount of ammunition for the US M777 howitzers.
The military observer believes that Russian aviation has already learned how to fight Ukrainian artillery, and the turn has gradually come to the US rocket systems. Three hundred missiles are 50 loaded launchers capable of firing at a range of up to 70 kilometres, Khodarenok shared this opinion in his Telegram channel.
“Remarkably, the method of defeat was chosen classically, if not “textbook”. Apparently, intelligence had tracked where the missiles and other NATO munitions were being delivered and the location was hit. Curiously, the build-up of logistic routes and the cunning delivery scheme do not help the AFU and GUR to keep the fact of delivery a secret. The information leaks outside the agencies and becomes the property of Russian intelligence,” the observer noted.
