U.S. Army Units Join Together To Showcase The Capabilities Of A New Type Of HIMARS Ammunition

March 16, 2017

The High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a light multiple rocket launcher mounted on a standard U.S. Army Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) truck frame capable of launching the entire Multiple Launch Rocket System Family of Munitions (MFOM). It is the light, wheeled version of the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), with the capacity to carry either six rockets or one MGM-140 ATACMS missile.

This potent yet highly mobile artillery system is one of the best weapons at the U.S. military ground forces disposal to be used on the battlefield not employed from an aircraft. This short video shows what happens when various units join together during training opportunities in order to showcase the capabilities of a new type of ammunition, similar to what would be claymores from the sky. Fun for the whole family, indeed.
