The HIMARS rocket launchers were considered a “game changer” for Ukraine. However, after four of the 15 were destroyed after only 4 days (eXXpress reported), President Volodymyr Zelenskyj’s troops had to accept the next serious setback. Russian high-precision weapons have two more American ones on a factory site HIMARS– Missile launchers turned off, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Monday.
Ukraine has already lost six of the €5.6 million “wonder weapons”. Which, by the way, are also very expensive to use: Each individual rocket fired with the HIMARS costs 150,000 euros. A whole salvo, a million euros. The two destroyed rocket launchers were worth 11.2 million euros.
