‘It’s a Great Weapon’: New US Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Arrive in Germany
Over a dozen M270-A1 multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) have arrived in Germany, bringing longer-range rocket artillery to US forces in the region in the wake of the collapse of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty
Sixteen of the mobile rocket systems and their support vehicles arrived by rail in Grafenwoehr on Wednesday to outfit the recently reformed 41st Field Artillery Brigade, now based in Germany’s southern Bavaria state. The systems greatly extend the range of US artillery, and new projectiles in development will push the limits
of the now-defunct INF Treaty.
Last year, US European Command complained to lawmakers of its need for such a brigade, which was added to its forces in November when the 41st was reactivated. An MLRS rocket barrage can reach targets at least 40 miles away, or with newer rockets like the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS
), upwards of 100 miles away.
