Ukraine fightback: Powerful UK rocket launchers to force Putin into humiliating retreat


Vladimir Putin faces humiliation on the battlefield in Ukraine after a new video showed Ukrainian troops using “game-changing” British weapons for the first time. Ukraine’s Armed Forces released a video online showing its forces deploying a British-supplied M270B1 multiple rocket launcher in Ukraine for the first time. The rocket launcher was also accompanied by a British FV103 Spartan armoured personnel carrier during the missile launch.

In the video, Ukraine thanks its allies for their “unwavering” support and help in taking on the Russian enemy.

UA Weapons, which tracks Ukrainian military efforts, tweeted: “The first video of a British-supplied M270B1 multiple rocket launcher in action in Ukraine – also accompanied by a British FV103 Spartan armoured personnel carrier, which is apparently used as a command vehicle.”

In early June, the British Government announced plans to train Ukrainian troops to use the launchers in the UK.

At the time, the Foreign Office said the M270B1 weapons will offer a “significant boost in capability for the Ukrainian forces”.

Among the weapons pledged, the UK has sent six of the M270B1, an even more powerful version of the US HIMARS, which have been praised as changing the war in Ukraine’s favour.

In early July, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov tweeted: “HIMARS have already made a HUUUGE difference on the battlefield.

“More of them as well as ammo & equipment will increase our strength and help to demilitarize the terrorist state.”

This comes as Ukraine launches a dramatic fightback to retake the Kherson region, which has become a focus of Kyiv’s counter-offensive in the south and a key link in Moscow’s supply lines.
