The US is unlikely to supply Ukraine with long-range Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) to battle Russia as it believes recent Ukrainian gains indicate that Ukraine already has sufficient capability to achieve its goals.


Tanmay Kadam writing in the EurAsian Times, makes the following points:
  • ATACMS Missiles 
    • Mach 3.5 speed and is almost impossible to intercept.
    • 300km range.
    • $1 mill each and currently not in production.
  • HIMARS fired GMLRS rockets.
    • 84 km range.
    • $160,000 each.
