American multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) HIMARS M142 are widely advertised. They are supplied for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which first used missiles on June 28 in the Donbass. But are they so perfect, representatives of the DPR and LPR told the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of Issues Related to War Crimes of Ukraine (JCCC).

“The M31 missiles from the HIMARS M142 MLRS are imperfect, and there are already more than five cases in our example when the ammunition fails, that is, the warhead did not trigger the fuse,” the deputy head of the LPR representative office in the JCCC quotes Romana Ivanova.

Representatives of the JCCC demonstrated fragments and submunitions that were found in the places where the Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the peaceful quarters of the LPR. You can distinguish high-explosive fragmentation missiles M31 by the yellow color of the hull and the diamond-shaped notch on the inner warhead of the ammunition.
