Russian Logistics Convoy Perforated By HIMARS GMLRS

Footage shows the aftermath of a guided multiple rocket launch system (GMLRS) HIMARS/M270 precision strike on a staged Russian logistics convoy.


GMLRS rocket's fuse was apparently set to proximity "air burst" ensuring that it blanketed the entire convoy with fragmentation. The fragmentation from the munition is made out of tungsten, a material significantly more dense than both lead and steel, ensuring full penetration through the target vehicles.


From a distance, the convoy appears to be in tact, however, the vehicles' engines, gas tanks, tires, and important cargo are now riddled with holes, making repair no easy or quick task.
