Former military intelligence officer Simon Leduc explained the utility of these multiple rocket launchers for Ukrainian forces on the front.

“The HIMARS system can fire up to six rockets or has the capability to fire missiles with a longer range,” he said.

The US government has warned Ukraine not to launch missiles into Russian territory.

The HIMARS system enabled the military to target a large weapons depot in the Kherson region, which has been controlled by Russian forces since March.

“In the last few days, a dozen deposits have been damaged. The rockets have a minimum range of 80 km and a maximum range of 500 km, but the Americans have not given them that capability,” he said.

Simon Leduc claims that Himars rocket launchers can be easily transported from place to place, making it difficult for the Russians to destroy the system.
