The invaders tried to destroy HIMARS – Forbes

Analysts note that on average the Russian Federation reacts and hits the target within three to five minutes, but HIMARS saves on movement speed.

Ukraine has about 39 HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems to protect its skies and maneuver. The invaders did not even try to find them. In particular, there is at least one allegedly dangerous attempt by the Russian Federation to detect HIMARS. Forbes reported this in connection with the opinion of American journalist David Ax, who mentioned the case when a Russian UAV recorded the operation of HIMARS.

“They may have been close not too long ago when a Russian drone spotted HIMARS in action,” he said.

The aforementioned case, when the installation was probably detected, took place in the Donetsk region “this week or earlier,” the specialist said. However, HIMARS was able to redeploy quickly. After launching the missiles, the MLRS drove into the forest area of ​​the belt.

“When, after some time, Russian missiles aimed at the same forest belt, there was no echo in the form of an explosion, which could indicate that the HIMARS was no longer placed there,” the journalist said.

According to him, the Russian army could not react quickly enough to shoot down its expected “first” HIMARS.

The opinion of analysts at the Royal United Services Institute in London was also cited. Experts say that on average the Russian Federation can react and reach the target within 3-5 minutes. In the case in question, HIMARS may have saved him is his speed.

At the same time, the question arose as to how the Russian Federation determined the work of the Ukrainian air defense forces.

“Many Ukrainian missile launchers travel with anti-aircraft protection, equipped with shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles. If the aforementioned HIMARS, which recently almost suffered a strike, has its own protection against on the aircraft, then, most likely, it did not react as soon as the Russian UAV saw the installation,” experts suggest.

We remind you that, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, on December 31, two Russian air defense systems were destroyed. Another 780 occupants, as well as more than 150 pieces of equipment, were also removed.
