Russia claims that Polish-made rockets hit targets in Russia

Defence24(.)com: The Russians informed that remains of the 122 mm Feniks rockets, made in Poland, were found in the Belgorod region.

The rockets in question are compatible with the BM-21 Grad, and RM-70 systems and their derivatives, and they can be employed by the Ukrainians without any issues. Given their range of 40 kilometrers these munitions offer exponentially better performance, when compared to the legacy rockets, with a range of up to 20 kilometres.

Poland has, so far, transferred significant quantities of 122 mm rockets to Ukraine, along with several BM-21 Grad systems. Some rumours also suggest that RM-70/85 systems were also transferred.
