Ukrainian paratroopers have provided a compelling demonstration of the HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) effectively wiping out a Russian Grad multiple launch rocket system (MLRS).

The footage, released by the press service of the Airborne Assault Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, showcases the precise capabilities of HIMARS in combat.

The operation was a result of effective coordination between aerial reconnaissance of a separate artillery brigade of the Air Assault Forces and the HIMARS crew.

The successful strike is a testament to the motto "Together to victory," emphasizing action over words in the ongoing conflict.

Further details provided by Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, Commander of the Tavriya Operational and Strategic Group of Troops, highlight recent Russian losses on the Tavriya front.

This includes the destruction of the Russian BM-21 Grad MLRS and the costly Borisoglebsk electronic warfare station on November 8.

The report also details the intensity of the conflict, with the enemy carrying out 21 airstrikes, 47 combat clashes, and 877 artillery attacks in a single day.

In response, units of missile forces and artillery from the Tavriya Joint Task Force executed 1213 fire missions, resulting in total enemy losses amounting to 433 personnel, including one occupier who surrendered.

This operation underscores the strategic impact of HIMARS in the Ukrainian defense efforts and highlights the ongoing challenges and successes in the conflict against Russian forces.
