What’s the warhead on those? Is it a cluster bomb, or the other variant which looks like a bunker buster?

previous weapon packages included cluster warhead variant, with short range and 900 bomblets or long range and 350 bomblets, if there are unitary warehad variants then it’s a new development

But in terms of launches, himars can fit 1 atacms per time and mars or equivalent can fit 2. There where at least 2 launches per vehicle.

And the unitary warhead was not officially announced for Ukraine.

So I counted 8 missiles. Does that mean there is a field in Ukraine with 8 himars? Or is the use of the word ATACMS loosely used?

It’s four M270 self-propelled MLRS vehicles

They also have the tracked version from Germany and France (a varians of the m270). Mars has a double launch unit compared to himars.
