France handed over LRU rocket launchers to Ukraine

France delivered to Ukraine the installation of the MLRS LRU, which is the French analogue of the American system M270A1 MLRS. This was announced by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov.


The head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense announced the arrival of the French MLRS to Ukraine, saying that with the arrival of this installation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have become "even more powerful." It is not entirely clear from the message how many installations arrived in Ukraine, but no more than two, since the French promised only two installations.

MLRS LRU from France arrived in Ukraine! The Ukrainian army is now even more powerful to contain and destroy the enemy

- said Reznikov.

According to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, four versions of the M270A1 MLRS are now in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine: the British M270B1 MLRS, the German MARS II, the American HIMARS and the French LRU. All these systems use the same ammunition and have almost the same characteristics.

The delivery of two MLRS to Ukraine was announced by French Defense Minister Sebastian Lecornu. According to open data, the French army was armed with 13 jet systems that were upgraded to the level of LRU (Lance-Roquettes Unitaire) under a 2011 contract of the year, the rest of the installations were sent for storage.

The MLRS is equipped with an EFCS (European Fire Control System) fire control system from Airbus, capable of operating in modern control loops and allowing the use of GMLRS family rockets, but prohibiting the use of cluster warhead ammunition.

      Saying that everything is over for them, they continue to send their weapons to Ukraine. They force Russia to specifically hit the railway infrastructure, and then they will pity the "innocent"

                Well, as for the matrices specifically - Russia had a contract with France and purchased matrices - a fact. but somewhere in the year 16, ours created a matrix of the best quality and began to build their own production so as not to renew the French contract. So Russia could refuse imports back in 10 and produce its own because of the French.
                We have chosen an average cost version of the domestic cooled matrix based on indium antimonide (range 3-5 µm) with a resolution of 640x512 elements. Domestic sights with such a thermal imaging module TPK-K are used in mass production of armored vehicles.
                I think this topic has not been discussed for a long time - it is procrastinated for a word.
                But if I'm wrong, they can correct me.

                  you are mistaken in only one thing, the OEP of the NIR range of 0,75-1,4 microns, SWIR 1,5-3 microns and MWIR 3-5 microns have long been mastered by us, in cooled / non-cooled versions and are used in the defense industry. They belong to thermal vision devices, but as such they are not thermal imagers. But microbolometers of the LWIR range of 8-14 microns are mostly manufactured in China and purchased there. Our domestic ones also have 640x640, but we get it as always - very expensive and not quite "good", since production volumes do not allow, and the mass market is occupied by China.

                What the hell are French matrices? You are not at all in the subject if you are still living in the past ... After the sanctions of 2014, the French cannot supply any matrices.
                In the world, not only America and France can produce thermal imagers ...
                The production of solid-state uncooled matrix microbolometers has long been mastered in China and Russia. In responsible tasks, we can use our own (expensive), and in the mass segment, Chinese (not cheap, but acceptable), they have mastered them massively a long time ago.

            The only thing I can regret about the French, they were excellent winter boots!!! Gorgeous leather, fur, locks and soles!!! They handed it out for many years, traveled the whole country in them ...
            the idiotic "died", but the hero of which death ... stepped on the soldering iron and melted the sole across to the full depth !!! Couldn't be repaired.
            It was in Soviet times!!! and I bought those boots in a special shop in... well, not for everyone, in general.

            The most correct thing is to squeeze out these installations and, with all the "proletarian hatred", charge them at the Saloreikhov decision-making center !!! I am sure the 45th Special Forces brigade is quite capable of this.

      This is not the point, but the fact that weapons are still flowing freely to Ukraine. So the question is, who is the bigger enemy, the one who sends or the one who still does not want to block the channels for the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

    #UAarmy now is even more powerful for deterring&destroying the enemy.
    That is a visible result of friendship between

    Chin up. Do you know why the French gave up their MLRS? Because not only all of them remained from the American Hymars. According to my calculations, of those 20 that were given, well, God forbid, 2-3 survived. Well now there will be 2 more. The win is shorter. And the shells are crazy money. The Americans will probably also strain the French to provide spare parts, ammunition, consumables, etc.

    And I saw a certain plus for us in this, look, NATO in Europe is burning through its resources from its own arsenals, sooner or later we will finish off everything, and then Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Poland are ours! What can they oppose us? Poland’s army has only 130 thousand tears for everything about everything, they don’t do anything of their own, Germany will close itself from fright with its 60 thousand ground grouping and 130 tanks ... And our army will already be battle-hardened, debugged, well-coordinated ...
    USA? So they have the Pacific Ocean, and also with current tanks at storage bases ...

      And what can we oppose besides nuclear weapons, if everything NATO fits into this conflict? And there is no need to write about hardenedness and coherence here, when in Avdiivka alone we have been butting heads with the Armed Forces of Ukraine for 9 months, and on grain and other transactions, we only have time to regroup.

    France handed over LRU rocket launchers to Ukraine

    Any tankette, even a rifle that gets into the Armed Forces of Ukraine, is bad. For soldiers on the front line, the less ammunition the enemy has, the more they will return home with victory.
    And France...
    Friend country. When it is beneficial for France.
    They even fought together in WWII. True, not all, But those who were definitely against the Nazis and for France.
    Recently I read about Mistral somewhere.

    Normandy-Niemen. In the past.
    Now France is for the expansion of NATO to the east, for the supply of its Caesar guns. For the extermination of Russians by Russians.
    For Napoleon. For something that would take revenge on Russia for Napoleon.

      Iosif Vissarionovich "felt sorry for them" Whomever, and these "winners" of the Germans definitely should not have been represented in international tribunals and organizations. Their number in the ranks of the SS-tsev cannot be compared with those who fought on our side in the ranks of Normandy - Neman.
