German MARS II long-range MLRS and 4 American HIMARS MLRS arrive in Ukraine – Oleksii Reznikov, Ukrainian Defense Minister
They are both part of the long-range MLRS family that Ukraine needs to change the tide of the war.
MARS II is a licensed copy of the American M270 MRLS. It has a firing range of 38-300 km depending on missile type. Earlier, German Defense Ministry said 3 units were supplied.
According to Reznikov, Ukraine needs about 50 HIMARS to stop the Russian offensive. With these new 4 units, the number of HIMARS Ukraine has received rises to 16.
The introduction of HIMARS is believed to have set off Russia’s artillery advantage – Ukraine’s use of HIMARS has stalled Russia from its scorching of Ukrainian land:
