MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System Artillery)

Posted by surfingall on May 11, 2010

MLRS provides massive amounts of firepower on the battlefield. It is specifically designed to have a longer range and greater lethality than enemy artillery systems. The possession of the MLRS creates a tremendous advantage for the allied forces.

However, on a wide open battlefield, the MLRS can wreak incomparable amounts of damage and fear upon enemy forces by firing guided rockets from a previously unimaginable distance with a range of up to 300 kilometers using the most modern ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile System) class rockets.

The MLRS can hit targets before they think about being ready to fight a battle. One MLRS launcher can carry 12 rockets to blanket a square kilometer with fragmentation warheads. The MLRS is designed to act as a stand-off front-line assault vehicle to take out entire enemy formations of troops or vehicles. The MLRS has also been fitted for the HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) wheeled platform that has increased mobility and range which decreases enemy counterattack.
