The First MLRS “M270” From the USA Already in Ukraine 

On June 15, the first batch of long-range MLRS arrived in Ukraine

Long-range multiple launch rocket systems from the USA, M270, arrived in Ukraine just in time. Very timely for the fresh wounds of the Ukrainians from the shelling of Mykolaiv and Vinnytsia. The minister of defense of Ukraine Oleksii Rezinikov shared on Twitter information that long-range MLRS had arrived in Ukraine and the Russians should not expect mercy.

"Long hand family of the UA army has been enlarged: the first MLRS M270 have arrived! They will be good company for HIMARS on the battlefield. Thank you to our partners. No mercy for the enemy," Alexii Reznikov.

The M270 universal mounts are used both as an MLRS and as a platform for launching tactical projectiles. Projectile distance — from 2.000 to 80.000 meters.

We remind you that the United States included $1 billion for arming Ukraine in its defense budget for 2023.
