Kiev Begs For ATACMS Ballistic Missiles

The Kiev regime continues to beg its Western allies for modern weapons, turning the war in Ukraine into the global one. To approach Ukraine’s victory in the war against Russia, Ukraine needs long-range missiles, said adviser to the head of Zelensky’s Office Podolyak.

Moscow has already warned that the delivery of longer-range missiles by the United States to Ukraine will make Washington a party to the conflict. In the event of the start of deliveries of longer-range missiles to Ukraine than those that have already been sent to Kiev, the United States will cross the “red line”, said the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova.

Pilots of Ukrainian fighters already use American AGM-88 High-speed Anti-Radar Missile (HARM) anti-radar missiles which have the range of up to 150 kilometers. The range of RGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missiles, which were also supplied to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, reaches 120 kilometers. The AFU uses them not from ships, but, presumably, from converted trucks. The notorious US multiple Launch Rocket systems (MLRS) M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) allow to fire various types of rockets and missiles, including the unguided ones. The installation is capable of releasing up to six rounds of ammunition at a time at a range of up to 300 kilometers. They are actively used by the AFU to kill civilians in the territories they lost. LINK

However, this is no enough for the Kiev regime.

The Wall Street Journal reported on September 12 that Kiev “sent a signal” to the United States and NATO with a request to ensure the possibility of purchasing 29 types of weapons in 2023. The list includes ATACMS missiles with a range of up to 300 km

The supply of American ATACMS ballistic missiles to Ukraine will mean the actual unleashing of a military conflict by Washington with Moscow.

On Thursday, the U.S. leader announced the aid to be drawn from U.S. military equipment inventories in a memorandum to Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The latest $600 million arms transfer included “additional ammunition” for the HIMARS precision-guided rocket artillery systems, 36,000 105mm artillery rounds, 1,000 Excalibur precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds, four counter-artillery radars, four trucks, and eight trailers to transport heavy equipment, anti-drone equipment, mine-clearing equipment, Claymore anti-personnel mines, demolition munitions, small arms and ammunition, night vision devices, cold weather gear, and other field equipment, official statements said

The ATACMS missile, a long-range, precision-guided munition manufactured by Lockheed Martin and long wished by Kiev, was absent from the White House announcement.

On September 17, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said in an interview with PBS that the country is discussing the supply of long-range missiles with the United States.

“The issue of assistance and delivery of missiles of a certain range and armored vehicles is a matter of accelerating the end of the war. The sooner we get these volumes of weapons, and we will get them anyway, I want everyone to understand this, because the war cannot end otherwise than on the terms of Ukraine. Because for the stability of the world, Russia must lose. Otherwise, Russia will claim a dominant role in determining global security, and no one needs it, including the United States.

As we receive missiles, we will accelerate the timing of the end of the war. It can end in 3-5 months, and not in a year and a half.

The range of the missiles determines the possibility of striking warehouses in remote areas, for example, in the Crimea. Having destroyed everything related to the delivery of resources, we will get the exsanguination of Russian groups. The fall of Donetsk and Lugansk will bring down the entire infrastructure of the Russian army. Russia will start to flee from the territory of Ukraine on a large scale, including Crimea,” adviser to the head of Zelensky’s Office Podolyak says.

The wet dreams of the Kiev regime are not dangerous for Russia but pose a real threat to the entire international system. Russian forces is armed with modern air defense systems capable of neutralizing the threat posed by ATACMS missiles. At the same time, Washington’s presents to Kiev may turn the Ukrainian war into WWIII.

Well, russian surveillance capability are worst in the world. All weapons are being under their nose.

To this day, I don’t understand that as Ukrainians fire himmars, russian troops should know the position of the launcher and it should be easy for them to destroy those himmars. But what we see? Himmars continues to operate, and we hear russian mods claiming that the himmars were destroyed. I don’t really believe russian MOD statement. They are the king of lies.

Good point

Hans Holm

Total nonsense actually. You must be him.

V for victory

1- some HIMARS are effectively destroyed

2- to discover a MLR from a 70 km range is all but easy, not even with an counter-artillery radar. You have to be there with an aicraft or drone (armed) to do so.

Hans Holm

Clueless nonsense, you imbecile have no idea what you are talking about.

OccupyBacon

You “don’t understand” because you are a 10 years old idiot (and also a troll, probably the same moron as this Ramses). Do you at least understand how large Ukraine is? They hide in the forest or in urban areas, fire their missiles, and immediately return to their cover. How exactly your think Russians should instantly detect them and destroy them?
Israelis failed to destroy homemade Hamas missile launchers, fired from a very, very small area; and they had a complete air dominance 24/7, radars, drones and even ships nearby.

With all the money and weapons received from his Westerner partners, I wonder why Ukraine hasn’t built what it asks for. It is not that simple to take apart an MLRS missile and change its propellant to get a longer range.

Its easy. Ukraine is defined to have the right to defend it self. As long as they only or almost only do that, we will support them.

It is obvious that the Kiev regime want to drag west European countries directly into a conflict with Russia. It can be argued that this is already happening with the UK Germany and Poland supplying weapons and missiles to Kiev. When west European countries start getting the same treatment that the Donbass has been subjected to since 2014 then we will see their attitude change

As far as I am concerned we (US) had no (zero) business getting involved but as soon as we started sending military aid to Ukraine we sided with and are an active party to the Ukraine conflict. There is not one positive benefit of our involvement and the American people are starting to wake up to that fact.

jens holm

As far as You are consernes. Thats correct.

People in USA are nort staring to wake up. They already are and has voted and has made governess for them.

It do make a lot of sense there are Belarus and kriane as neutral countries bertween Nato and Russia.

You seemes unaware Ukriane is a very big underdevelloped market, which also has and industrial sectir mineral and a lot of food production. By that USA and well as others can sell their stuff, nuy their stufe and ukras can be happy rainsing their livigstandards by GDP.

You also ignore , that Caucasus also is a dispute. Its the same even smaller but behind it there is oil and gas all the way to China. USA today need it as well as some kind of control could be nice.

No conflict with Russia will happen. Even if NATO forces attack Russia there won’t be any response. To fight one needs atleast some courage. Russia is good at killing civilians, bombing Power stations and dams. But if the enemy is strong, Russia runs away.

Wrong. Range of HIMARS is less than 100km (new improved version supposedly with 150km range is not even operational). When you attach ATACMS instead then it’s range is some 300km but it can’t fire “six round”, rockets are obviously bigger. Different systems, both use the same carrier vehicle. HIMRAS is inferior to Russian Tornado and ATACMS is inferior to Iskanders. But yeah ATACMS is a tactical missile much better than old Soviet Tochkas and can be used to attack targets in Russia.

I’ve been watching HIMAR being promoted as some kind of wonder weapon when really it’s just a cheaper less protected version of the M-270. What they don’t tell you is it’s just a copy of Russian Smerch / Tornado MLRS systems that can be taken out by a 50 cal round @ 2000 yards. It even fires the same missiles.

USA is using Ukraine as an infomercial for US weapons. Consumate bullshit artists and con men these Americans are … sociopaths who don’t give a fuck about anyone or anything but making a buck. Buy a HIMARS and get a set of free Ginsu knives and a kevlar vest for when your MLRS gets blown out from underneath you.

Very much as You need some operation Yourself.

When thy can fire and hit one by one its because they are very accurate. No Russians as in flocks.

And the range varies. Those missiles all has a range over what You write. Its 165 to 300 km. No wonder many Russians are surpriced if they read anti data like this.

ATACMS munitions are basically cluster munitions, of the 4 standard munitions available in service, 2 are cluster bomb delivery systems and 2 are drone loitering BAT munition delivery systems. They plan on using these on civilians.

Using the western media to make russian weapons look bad and the us weapons look supreme.
I noticed recently the german media started doing what until now only us and russian media
was doing. Praising wepon systems and how usefull they are.

This seems to be a major marketing campaign for the us arms industrie no matter how much
ukraine gets destroyed.

In the end it is a win win situation for the US.

1. Russias arms industry getting negativ reputation (no matter if the failure is due to descisions or hardware it will be blamed on the hardware)

2. us arms industry getting huge sales and pr

3. whatever part of ukraine russia gets, will have to be rebuild by russia

4. whatever part of ukraine will survive will have to be rebuild by the eu

5. the energy crisis in the eu will lessen the eu as global economic competition.

6. russia will not be able to sell it’s products to the us sphere of influence in the future

The only question left will be how to prevent china to profit of all this as well.
Cause a weakened russia getting under the influence of china will not help the us.
And china is much better prepared to jump into the contracts that a weakened eu
ecomony will loose then the us.

So china is the endgame of the us unless they really have a plan to get another jelzin kind
president in charge of russia and then cut china of all recource supply.
Then the situation will be similar to japan in ww2 and we will see if china will fare better then japan did.

The us is done as a superpower. It has nothing left but it’s MIC and that will take some time to take away it’s influence and “teeth”. Russian hardware is very good and does a decent job of eliminating it’s objectives. Not sure what you are going on about dude, you don’t seem to have all the facts. The East will take the reins of world’s influence and power shortly.

HB_Norica

Yes they are slagging Russian weapons in the media but that only matters to taxpayers and fan boys. Real military people … the ones who are actually responsible for buying weapons for their countries … aren’t going to be swayed by propaganda. They are military people after all who know how and why propaganda works. They have much better sources for analysis of a weapons performance than chest thumping pieces in WAPO or DW.

Russian weapons are really bad and their military too. The battlefield says so.

What you didn’t mention is the fact that Russia is using it’s 3rd and 4th generation weapons systems only, only a few 5th generation units (Terminators) have been used on NATO mercenaries to support the poorly equiped Donbass and Lugansk militias as ‘equalizers’. I would not be investing in the US arms complex, while the US gov is hyperinflating itself into financial collapse, just imagine what those shares will be worth when the US dollar collapses and the arms purchases go unpaid.

“The wet dreams of the Kiev regime are not dangerous for Russia but pose a real threat to the entire international system”

Why is Russia warning against supplying these ATACMS if the Russians can deal with it as the writer claims here: “Russian forces is armed with modern air defense systems capable of neutralizing the threat posed by ATACMS missiles”

I suggest bombing all ukro-nazis train stations around the country, and when it gets colder make a total blackout in Kiev, plus finally all airfields in Kiev should be bombed. Now when Kiev’s fascist regime is bombing administration buildings in Luhansk, Donetsk, in Kherson etc (many dead during the last days) the Russian Forces are now allowed to do the same in Kiev. And also consider use of tactical nuclear weapons against the fascist troops? Or at least make a statement to fascists Biden US regime that if any more HIMARS or long range weapons systems arrives to Kiev’s junta then we will use tactical nuclear weapons against Ukraine’s troops using them.
