Prelude to Destruction: US-Provided ATACMS Launched by Ukraine

This footage allegedly depicts the launch of the MGM-140 ATACMS weapons systems provided to Ukraine by the United States. The aftermath of this launch can be seen in this video, which shows a Russian airbase having been pummeled. While the ATACMS can reach deep into Russia, the distance and frequency at which it will be used, and the effect it will have on overall strategy for both parties, remain to be foreseen.
