MLRS “Mars II” to Ukraine From Germany

Germany announced the transfer of 3 multiple rocket launchers to Ukraine

The German Ministry of defence announced the transfer of 3 units of Mars II missile systems to the Ukrainian front. According to German defence minister Christina Lambrecht, rocket launchers from warehouses will be delivered to the Armed Forces of Ukraine in August. Before that, the soldiers of Ukraine will be trained in the use of these jet systems. It is known that earlier, Germany spoke about the transfer of 4 systems.

"According to Business Insider, the fact that three rocket launchers are now being delivered instead of four is due, among other things, to a lack of ammunition. According to insiders, Germany cannot shoot off most of its own ammunition due to the lack of a software update announced at the end. According to Business Insider, the German shipment only works because the US wants to deliver more munitions for Mars II. In addition, less than half of the Martian systems in Germany are in operation and are no longer being built by industry," Business Insider.
