The US Army ordered the delivery of new HIMARS MLRS to replace those delivered to Ukraine

The United States will replenish stocks of multiple launch rocket systems depleted as a result of spacers of systems to Ukraine, the Pentagon has signed new contracts for the supply of MLRS. This is stated in the statement of the US military department, published on Monday evening.


Lockheed Martin Corporation received several contracts from the US Army for the supply of new MLRS to replace those sent to Ukraine. The number of ordered cars is not reported, but the total amount that will be spent on the purchase is 520 million dollars. The Pentagon statement explicitly states that MLRS stocks have been depleted due to the shipment of jet systems to Kyiv. The contracts were signed in October and November, details were not disclosed.

The US Army signed on October 21 and November 2 several contracts worth 520 million with Lockheed for the supply of MLRS to replenish the arsenal to replace those sent to Ukraine from the stocks of the Ministry of Defense

- said in a statement.

As the Pentagon explained, the contracts are concluded in such a way as to not only replenish the stocks of MLRS in their own arsenals, but also be able to supply systems to "allies and partners." Most likely, a certain number of installations for Ukraine were included in the document.

Recall that in early October, Ukraine offered the United States to exchange the not yet built HIMARS MLRS, budgeted by the Pentagon, for the same number of similar systems from the US Army. As stated in Kyiv, they need MLRS right now, and not in a year or two.

To date, the United States has supplied Ukraine with 26 HIMARS MLRS, as well as an unspecified amount of ammunition for them. At the same time, in the West, some "experts" claim that during the entire period of the special operation, Russian troops failed to destroy a single American installation.

    All cartoons from the times of the USSR and the Cold War, about the connection between the Pentagon and the capitalists, are confirmed and again become relevant

    The Pentagon directly states that the MLRS stocks have been depleted due to the shipment of jet systems to Kyiv.
    Well, if the Pentagon confirms the costs in stocks of certain types of weapons and b / n, then what can we say about European countries whose armed forces are not at the same level as in the United States.
    Lockheed Martin Corporation
    Here is one of those who are in a clear win - orders are provided for several years in advance, free advertising of products in foreign media articles and politicians' statements about the superiority of weapons and how it affects the situation on the battlefield ...

        Missile consumption, not the installations themselves.

    More like Taiwan. Which has already paid money, unlike Ukraine.
    The amount of the contract is very modest. How many installations (with missiles) can be created with that kind of money? Moreover, the cost will be higher.

      Himaris themselves are inexpensive, only $3.5 million a piece, and given the number of orders for mass production, they can significantly reduce the cost.

        Yes, the trick is not in trucks, but in rockets.
        One guided missile costs like a truck))

          A chip in fire control, which is carried out through a computer according to coordinates. Himars can launch unguided projectiles at 45 km, where their probable circular deviation is no more than 2 meters

        They will actually be more expensive. Since all electronics have risen in price. Plus - more expensive raw materials, metal, electricity.
        It is unlikely that it will be possible to ensure a higher mass production, production capacities are limited.
        And yes ... with mass production, the cost price (cost, "internal price") is reduced, not the selling price (price). The manufacturer is not obliged to sell below the price specified in the contract.
