HIMARS Showers Tungsten Onto Exposed Russian Troops

Footage shows a HIMARS-fired guided rocket (GMLRS) targeting a platoon of Russian troops in the open in an unspecified area of Ukraine. The drone used to spot the targets is reportedly Ukraine's domestically-developed Shark UAV.


The viewer may wonder why the precision munition didn't pinpoint the large gathering of troops and opted, instead, for a smaller group of soldiers and vehicles. That is a good question. Based on my time in service, the larger group in the bottom of the frame would have been low-ranking enlisted men, playing grab-ass and shooting the shit. The smaller gathering would have likely been the leadership, NCOs and officers, and along with vehicles, may have been a more preferable target.
