Quote from Zaluzhnyi: “The Armed Forces are grateful to our partners for their unwavering support and assistance.
Together to victory!”
For reference: The M270 MLRS is a multi-functional complex on a tracked chassis that can be used as an MLRS [Multiple Launch Rocket System] and as an Operational Tactical Missile System.
This complex is unofficially dubbed the “finger of God” because of its firepower.
- At the beginning of June, Britain announced that it would provide M270 MLRS to Ukraine, which can hit targets at a distance of up to 80 km.
- On 29 June, Norway’s Ministry of Defence promised to facilitate Ukraine’s acquisition of additional multiple rocket launcher systems from Britain by providing the British with three replacement systems.
- On 15 July, the first M270 long-range multiple-launch missile systems arrived in Ukraine.
