American-made HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems will replace traditional artillery in the Polish army. This was announced by the former Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Yuri Baluevsky.
The Polish authorities intend to purchase 500 HIMARS MLRS, which are capable of using long-range missiles, General of the Army Yury Baluyevsky said.
“Such a grouping of ground-based long-range precision weapons, provided that it is provided with a sufficient number of precision-guided missiles, as well as appropriate reconnaissance and target designation capabilities, is intended … to replace traditional artillery,” explained the former chief of the general staff of the Russian army.
Baluevsky noted that thanks to the HIMARS MLRS, the role of strike aircraft of the Polish Armed Forces could also be significantly reduced.
