The United States will soon deliver to Ukraine four more of the advanced rocket systems credited with helping the country’s military gain momentum in its military operation with Russia. 

The High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, known as HIMARS, will be part of a new 625 million dollar package of aid expected to be announced on Tuesday, according to U.S. officials. 

The decision marks the first time the US has sent more HIMARS to Ukraine since late July,

and it will bring the total number delivered so far to 20. The systems have become a key tool in Ukraine’s ability to strike bridges that Russia has used to supply its troops, enabling Ukrainian forces to make inroads in Russia-controlled regions. 

The US in recent weeks also provided funding through a separate program - the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative - so another 18 HIMARS can be purchased through longer-term contracts.
