RUSSIA could face debilitating missile strikes deep within their territory as Ukraine is set to receive game-changing American MGM-140 ATACM missiles.
The missiles are three times faster than the deadly Storm Shadow missiles – which are responsible for some of the most devastating strikes on Putin’s troops.
The ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile Systems) missiles can be equipped with an astounding 500lb warhead, and cover 190miles in just five minutes.
With speeds of 2,300mph, they can be used for precise strikes on the front lines in record amounts of time.
They can also carry hundreds of smaller “bomblets”, which can deal a devastating blow to large areas.
The missiles are pricy, however, costing an astounding £1.3million each, and weighing roughly 3,600lbs.
Upon their deployment in Ukraine, soldiers would be able to launch the killer missiles with the M-142 Himars rocket artillery launcher – which is already in use on the battlefield.
And the missiles are capable of reaching Putin’s treasured Crimean bridge, which has already been critically damaged by British supplied Storm Shadow Missiles.
The missiles are also in striking distance of all land annexed by Russia since 2014, as well as reaching into the territory of Russian ally Belarus, where Putin is rumoured to have soldiers on standby.
Ukraine has already been dealing killer strikes against Russia in recent weeks with the help of western supplied ammunition.
Putin was allegedly betrayed by his own officers who “leaked intel” to Ukraine, resulting in a killer strike which debilitated Putin’s Black Sea base.
33 Russian soldiers are thought to have died with hundreds of others injured.
Sokolov had been handpicked by Putin to restore the fleet’s pride after the loss last year to Ukrainian Neptune missiles of flagship Moskva.
Another barrage of ten cruise missile and kamikaze drones saw Russia’s Black Sea Fleet blasted earlier this month, as a submarine and an assault ship were destroyed in the Crimean port of Sevastopol.
