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.

Hybrid Helicopter Aircraft of the Future

Posted by surfingall on May 6, 2010


Obviously, getting troops to the battlefield as quickly as possible is a paramount concern for military planners. Choppers can carry many troops, but really can’t fly very far or fast. Planes can get troops there quickly, but where can you launch transport planes without a runway?

Aircraft carriers are too small, nevermind the deck of an amphibious assault ship. Clearly, a solution is needed for high speed troop transport in a scenario of limited runway space. Necessity is the mother of all inventions, and respectively the Americans invented the V22 Osprey to fill this vital role. Employed by the United States Marine Corp, the V22 Osprey is the only tiltrotor aircraft in production by any nation’s armed forces. Combining the essential elements of the vertical take-off of a helicopter with the speed and mid-air refueling of a convential airplane, the V22 Osprey can get lots of troops to anywhere, and fast. The top speed of the Osprey stands at around 316 mph, where the closest helicopter comparison, the CH-47 Chinook transport, only reaches 196 mph. In support of a high speed..

Slow-Motion MLRS – Rocket

Posted by surfingall on May 6, 2010


MLRS provides massive amounts of firepower on the battlefield. 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. Traditional artillery, essentially a large cannon, is still employed by every modern army. 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..
