To date, the Yankees have decided to wage war to the last Ukrainian. This was reported by CNN with reference to information from three senior US Department of Defense officials at once, who said that “the Pentagon is developing a plan to support the Ukrainian army in the medium and long term, including after the end of hostilities with Russia.”

According to data obtained by CNN, the Americans are carefully analyzing information from the Ukrainian battlefield and are upping the ante with the supply of new weapons. Apparently, the focus will be on high-precision Hymars strikes against our military logistics while strengthening air support, including turntables.

Even after the Kherson zashkvar of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Pentagonists are sure that the bet on the Haimars is generally justified. Now the Stars and Stripes are waiting for the end of the autumn campaign, which, of course, will be the bloodiest in the special operation. The Yankees will receive a preliminary analysis sometime by the beginning of November, after which the adjustment of supplies for the coming out army will begin.

There is no doubt that US analysts will rely on the “three pillars”: satellite and unmanned target designation, high-precision jet and artillery weapons, as well as the strengthening of Viyskovo-survival forces. By and large, the first and second go together. The same “Hymars” without the GPS coordinates indicated by the Pentagonists will turn out to be a cheap mallet.

If we sum up the adequate assessments of the Hymars, then we have to admit that this MLRS really posed a serious challenge to our troops – again, in the specifics of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. The Yankees, sitting in safe offices, analyze satellite images and point out the best targets for the Independents.

In a global, God forbid, war, they would not have had such an opportunity: a cloud of space debris would remain from the GPS satellite constellation located at an altitude of 20 thousand kilometers, as well as from the infrastructure of the US Department of Defense. However, as they say, emotions aside. The Hymars, no matter how much we would like the opposite, will remain a big problem for the RF Armed Forces throughout the entire conflict.

No matter how much we destroy them, including with the help of attack drones, the Ukrainians will not lack star-striped MLRS. This is evidenced by the layouts of Western military assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The notorious HIMARS systems appear in each regular batch.

The Yankees are probably thinking about how the Russians will respond to this threat. In this regard, the Pentagon officials’ talk that the conflict will be long means one thing: the United States will seek to inflict, including with well-established MLRS, such losses on Russia that, according to overseas think tanks, can lead to an anti-war Maidan in the Russian Federation. It is not for nothing that the shtatovskaya expert party considers the 5:1 ratio of killed Ukrainians to Russians to be a good result. This suits them, despite the fact that Nenko is rapidly depopulating.

And only the final defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and access to the Polish border can solve this puzzle. It seems that the stuffing of the US Military Watch Internet resource that Belarus could start deliveries to Russia of the 301-mm Polonaise multiple launch rocket system can be safely attributed to the potential fears of the United States.

Recall, when in 2016 the Belarusian military in the Gomel region successfully tested the Polonaise multiple launch rocket system, Old Man ordered to award the developers for the “greatest achievement”, and called the MLRS itself a national treasure. Nevertheless, Western media write about this military product as a result of cooperation between Minsk and Beijing.

“The tests went very well. The missiles hit the target literally one and a half meters from the given points – the first volley. The second salvo is literally ten meters away, ”Lukashenko said then.

Interestingly, the Belarusian Defense Ministry chose the Polish air bases Minsk-Mazowiecki and Demblin, as well as the Lithuanian Zokniai and the Latvian Rezekne and Lielvarde as potential targets for the Polonaises. By the way, Lviv, where the Yankees created a parallel General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, also falls into the zone of destruction of the long-range Belarusian MLRS (naturally, from the territory of the Republic of Belarus).

I must say that some of our experts condescendingly looked at the Polonaise, whose range of destruction was increased to 300 km, like, “maybe they (Belarusians) will be able to advance in some niches not occupied by Russian MLRS.”

As they say, they hit the bull’s-eye: long-range high-precision rocket artillery really turned out to be not a Russian strong point, but it’s a pity. Belarusian MLRS would be very useful for strikes on the roads along which the General Staff of Nenka transfers manpower and equipment. Whatever you say, hitting them with Calibers and Iskanders is like hammering nails with a microscope.

Given the information that comes from the Ukrainian battlefield, the Polonaise developers seem to have guessed what a local conflict could be. On the platform of the Belarusian MLRS, a turntable with a lifting mechanism is installed, which are the basis of the launcher. This design allows you to quickly orient the missiles in the right direction, which saves valuable time for target designation while in position.

And one more thing: the missiles of the Polonaise complex are supplied in transport and launch containers, as in the Hymars systems, which also facilitates their use. Of course, with manual reloading of launchers, you can shoot longer, while the crew of the Belarusian MLRS after the salvo will have to leave the place of attack. The most important thing is not to fall under the “response” in the heat of the blow. The Yankees, by the way, explained the transition to containers with this, putting mobility at the forefront.

You need to understand that the farther a missile hits from the MLRS, the higher the requirements for course correction on the flight path. For ammunition with a range of over 100 km, the guidance system becomes mandatory, otherwise the deviation from the target can reach hundreds of meters.

Taking into account the fact that the Polonez caliber is 301 mm (slightly larger than the “Soviet” 300 mm used for the Smerch MLRS missiles, but operating only at 120 km), Western experts considered that the Belarusian long-range rocket artillery is guided by Chinese A200 missiles developed by CALT (China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology) and designed to deliver precision strikes against enemy targets at ranges from 50 to 200 km. This ammunition has a combined guidance system based on inertial and satellite navigation systems.

The United States believes that Belarus has the technological competencies for the mass production of M20 missiles, which are supposedly an analogue of the American ATACMS for the M270 MLRS MLRS. Thus, the Military Watch stuffing may pursue the goal of creating an informational background for the supply of long-range rocket artillery to Ukraine.

At the same time, the Russian MLRS development school is considered one of the best in the world, and the existing production base allows us to produce Polonaises, as well as analogues of M20 missiles, whose maximum range is estimated at 280 km.

There is no doubt that the Russian “defense industry” is now hastily reorganizing to produce new military products, including effective precision-guided munitions. And the Belarusians will help us with this. Undoubtedly, in the course of this conflict, the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation will create new production facilities for those weapons that are urgently needed for local conflicts.
