Insane Power of HIMARS


The M142 HIMARS – High Mobility Artillery Rocket System is a relatively new weapon system. Lockheed Martin began its development in 1994, production started in 2003. Ideologically it is a classic mobile multiple rocket launcher system based on three-axle wheeled chassis FMTV, which allows airlifting by C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. So moving these weapons thousands of miles away in a few hours is no problem. HIMARS is the little brother of the M270A1 MLRS – Multiple Launch Rocket System. The latter is caterpillar-mounted and has twice as much ammunition. The HIMARS has six missiles, while the M270A1 MLRS has 12 missiles.
