US HIMARS deployed to Ukraine.

The HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) M270 is an American manufactured multiple launch rocket system, or MLRS.

Lockheed Martin which builds the HIMAR system and its missiles has a capacity to produce 10,000 GMLRS missiles per year for HIMARS, or ~800 per month. The US has about 1000+ HIMARs launchers, or roughly an ability to launch 100 missiles per year, per unit, if all systems were committed to a fight.

The Russian Hurricane M1 has been dubbed the 'HIMAR killer'.

Multiple Rocket Launch Systems are the backbone of any Soviet / Russian army. There are, only to name some of many, the GRAD (Short-range), Uragan (middle-range) and Smerch (long-range) MLRS systems. The Russian Smerch is comparable to the American HIMARS system.
