HIMARS reportedly being widely intercepted after software update



Reports are that Russians have gotten out the software update for their air defenses to identify HIMARS rockets. This had been predicted as a possibility months ago but the software would take time to develop and implement in the field (air defenses arent exactly hooked up to wireless updates), but looking like that day may have finally come.



The above video is highly educational about what the air defenses actually see. The problem is not really the air defenses capabilities, anti air can certainly take down a HIAMRS, the problem mostly comes down to having seconds to decide what the the thing is and by then its too late.

The HIMARS have a nearly identical signature to an unprogrammed radar as the cheapo Grad rockets. To spend an expensive air defense taking out a grad rocket would be an absolute waste so its a tough choice.

Anyways, I had heard a rumor about this 2 days ago but the first video above is the first video evidence of the software roll out rumor

By the way skip to about 5:23 on the Ryan McBeth video to see what Im talking about for the problem with intercepting HIMARS, he gives a good breakdown of exactly what a Russian air defense operator would see.

theres only a .4 mach difference between the Grad and HIAMRs but otherwise they appear identical. The dude looking at the screen (previously) simply could not tell them apart in time.

Re: HIMARS reportedly being widely intercepted after software update


heres a video showing a past interception with only 1 in 6 being intercepted from back in August. Posting to show they had some capability to hit them but obviously a problem as 1 in 6 aint that great.

Not sure if these rumors are just rumors but I guess we will see
