S-400 shoots down 12/12 HIMARS missiles

Fired at the big dam in the Kherson region which holds back the Dniepr River over recent days, the bridge had suffered damage from HIMARS rockets.  The Ukrainian land offensive against Kherson is waiting for the destruction of the three main bridges, and it seemed that they were making good progress.  The Russians had removed their S-300 air defense system away from Kherson opening up the area for air attacks with no effective anti-missile defense in place.  Today the S-400 which replaced the older S-300 was clearly in place and all the HIMARS rockets which were fired at the dam were shot down before they reached target.

The rest of this ‘Military Summary’ report from today is less newsworthy but gives lots of details.
