USA to escalate Ukraine war to tactical ballistic missiles

Is Volodymyr Zelenskyy President of Ukraine, on his way to Washington for a blockbuster announcement about U.S. tactical ballistic missiles after both the USA and Ukraine got a thorough snub at the G21 Summit in Bahrat (India)?

Newest Ukraine Weapons

The Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) is a conventional surface-to-surface artillery weapon system capable of striking targets well beyond the range of existing Army cannons, rockets and other missiles. ATACMS missiles are fired from the MLRS M270 and M270A1 weapons platform. ATACMS was very successful in Operation Desert Storm.

Also used as Warship Killers, these missiles are excellent personnel killers about which “Ukrainian militants are throbbing,” according to women who know many of these militants.

“The process of shipping Army Tactical Ballistic Missile Systems (ATACMS) to Ukraine is allegedly underway according to sources, friends actually, who are not permitted to speak to the media about the operational use of ATACMs in Ukraine. This is an exciting breakthrough for Ukrainian war planners because the Lockheed-Martin-made missiles have a 300KM range and some variants carry nearly a thousand bomblets, specifically 950 M74 anti-personnel and anti‑materiel (APAM) cluster munitions according to the company that makes the weapons. These cluster munitions will kill hundreds of ethnic-Russian moms and children in the Donbass as the existing weapons have done for years but more, with the ATACMs. These missiles will have a higher percent-kill factor in the long run because of the massive numbers of munitions left laying around until a kid steps on it. Based on years of experience in Ukraine’s war zones, that’s how the various militants of Ukraine will be using this weapon,” explains Dale Carter, the security director of The RINJ Foundation.

“ATACMS is a long-range guided missile that gives operational commanders the immediate firepower to win the deep battle. Each ATACMS missile is packaged in a MLRS look-alike launch pod and is fired from the MLRS Family of Launchers,” says Lockeed-Martin.

For the newest variant the company claims:

  • Improved guidance package with Global Positioning System.
  • Carries a WDU18, 500-lb class blast fragmentation warhead.
  • Maximum range is 300 km.
