Both sides seem to be using the grenade launchers also in indirect fire capacity,with third party spotting fires.

My Wife saw this photo agreed with you.  I have the suspicion that in her case, she meant the guy in the foreground, though.scream

Ukraine to reportedly receive HIMARS along with guided rockets (as well as possibly unguided rockets.) Will not receive the ATACMS short range ballistic missiles that can also be fired from the truck.

Point of order: ATACMS is very specifically not ballistic. It has a “300” km range and is powered all the way, in order to not breach the MCTR & INF treaty.

It is described as a short range ballistic missile:

I believe range is deliberately limited to avoid INF. But I dont think that pertains to its actual method of flight; I'd be astounded if a single stage solid fuel propellant rocket was maintaining thrust from launch to impact.

ATAMCS don't make much sense for Ukraine any ways, Himars, with 40 mile range on the other hand can play some front line ball , although note Ukraine had some 700 of their own MLRS when war started. 

It's kinda bizarre how Ukraine is supposedly out of any and all gear, they fucking had the world's 4th or 5th  largest arsenal in 91. And now they are running around with ww2 surplus. 

Looks like M109 from Norway
