US deployed container MLRS in Europe

US forces deployed new container MLRS M270A1 to Europe. About this writes the publication Defense blog.




The United States Army has announced that it will deploy M270 MLRS, or MLRS systems in Europe, as well as several support vehicles. The machines were at the disposal of the 41th Field Artillery Brigade. This is the only US missile artillery brigade in Europe.

According to available information, the party that arrived in Grafenwöhr, Germany, included at least 16 multiple launch rocket systems M270A1. This machine is a development MLRS M270, which entered service with the U.S. Army in 1983 year.

The difference between the M270 complex and most rocket-launch systems is that it has no guides. Missiles launch directly from containers. Each disposable container holds 6 missiles. Missiles can be stored in containers without maintenance for up to ten years. The tractor carries two such containers with a total number of 12 missiles.

The containers use MGM-140 ATACMS missiles. Mounted on the Bradley chassis, an upgraded launcher includes an advanced fire control system (IFCS). The range of ammunition used includes GPS-guided missiles.

Without leaving the cockpit, a crew of three - a driver, gunner and calculation commander - can issue up to 12 MLRS in less than 60 seconds at a distance of 160 km.



Missiles can be launched either individually or in multiple launch rocket mode, from two to 12. Accuracy is maintained in all shooting modes, because the computer makes corrections between salvos. The MLRS computerized fire control system allows loading and unloading the launcher to a reduced crew or even one soldier. Fire can be conducted manually or in automatic mode.

M270A1 can launch various types of missiles, including long-range (ER) missiles, short-range training missiles (RRPR) - from 8 km to 15 km and AT2, which can give a one-time volley of 28 anti-tank mines.

The latest M270A1 upgrade received an armored cab. On a number of MLRS also installed 7.62-mm machine gun. The maximum speed of MLRS on public roads is 64 km / h, range - 483 km. An advanced mechanical start-up system (ILMS) accelerated the reload speed by 50%, and the transition speed from traveling to combat position by 70%.

        Today, an external war is just a universal “adjustable wrench” for fixing its floundering statehood. Whenever possible, all countries and governments use it. And this is understandable: the authorities have the opportunity to massively mass the excess, without embarrassment to raise the right ones and totally please the stupid. Most often, this set of measures works and extends the life of even the most crooked modes. And the nuclearity of a possible conflict only enhances its attractiveness, opening up limitless opportunities to save a lot of money.

      Wars can end only when one state remains on the planet or when one state unites the planet, only a common goal and idea, or a common global threat can unite people .. and if such a goal, idea, threat appears, then humanity has a chance to take a long step .. including in space exploration and the search for new inhabited planets. If you look at how much money the world spends on weapons and directs them to science, then progress would move much faster. And the fact that war is an integral part of development is debatable, rather not war, but fear of war .. or just fear .. if you look further, fear is instinct, it turns out instinct and is the basis of development ..

          You see, the very idea of ​​stopping the war helps to discuss how this can be done .. but nobody really thinks about it, the heads of state have no problem stopping the war, and if there was such a goal, then humanity moved in that direction ..
          And religion is a tool for manipulating public opinion. And there would be a desire and religion would be one for all. Personally, I am most impressed with Buddhism .. laughing hi

          With my novel, I wanted to object to such works and thereby follow the three most important statements of V.I. Lenin, which were amazingly overlooked by the creators of models of the future society on Earth.

          The unimaginable complexity of the world and matter, which we are only beginning to comprehend in the second half of the XNUMXth century and about which he warned three quarters of a century ago, will require gigantic work for significant steps in cognition.

          The transition to a classless communist society and the full realization of the dream of the founders of Marxism about “jumping from the realm of necessity to the realm of freedom” are not simple and will require the highest discipline and conscious responsibility for each action. And finally, now more than ever it is more appropriate to recall the recommendation of V. I. Lenin given to science fiction writer A. A. Bogdanov: to show the looting of the natural resources and nature of our planet by capitalist management.
          In “Bull Hour” I presented the planet on which a group of earthlings moved, they repeat the pioneering conquest of the West of America, but on a much higher technical basis. The incredibly accelerated population growth and capitalist management led to the depletion of the planet and mass mortality from hunger and disease. The political system on a robbed planet, of course, should be oligarchic. To build a model of such a state, I continued into the future those tendencies of gangster fascist monopolism that are emerging now in America and some other countries, which are trying to preserve the "freedom" of private enterprise on a dense nationalistic basis.

          It is clear that not science and technology of the distant future or strange civilizations of immensely distant worlds became the goal of my novel. People of the future Earth, grown up by the centuries-old existence of a higher, communist form of society, the contrast between them and the same earthlings, but formed in the oppression and tyranny of the oligarchic system of another planet - this is the main purpose and content of the book.

          If it was possible to at least to some extent show this and help the builders of the future — our youth — go further, to the all-round perfection of the people of the communist tomorrow, the spiritual height of humanity, then my work was not done in vain.

          August 1968
          I apologize for such a long text. But these words of Efremov about his novel "The Hour of the Bull" touched me to the core even in my school years. And I consider this work to be immortal.

            Unfortunately, many do not understand this .. hi But communism is the future and today there is no idea more perfect for the development of mankind. Humanity will definitely return to this idea ..

        Wars can stop only when one state remains on the planet or when one planet unites

        Svarog, they forgot to write "Putin is to blame." You write this phrase everywhere, regardless of the content of the article. laughing

    The United States deployed new container MLRS to Europe
    So is Russia’s opposition or preparation for a possible strike? Then why to Germany, not Poland, or the Baltic states? Today is 16, tomorrow is 32 ..., as with tanks and infantry fighting vehicles in the Baltic states, supposedly for conducting exercises. And if you calculate how many additional equipment and weapons were caught in Europe only in the last year and how the number of NATO aviation reconnaissance flights increased, then all this leads to very sad thoughts.

    In fact, there are two types of calibers: MFOM - 227mm and AFOM - 610mm. In the first case, these are munitions M26, M28, GMLRS and AT-2. AFOM - this is ATACMS - MGM-140, MGM-164, MGM-168.
    With a little thought, the container launcher for the ATACMS with a flick of the wrist turns into a ground launcher for the new OTR and KLNB at short / medium ranges.

    Everyone does his own thing. Ammunition with high accuracy, this is their chip.
    The question is price - efficiency, maybe they want it that way.
    how it can actually turn out .... the question is certainly interesting, but there is no answer and it would never be better.

    A rather peculiar understanding of Buddhism in particular and religions in general. But the basis of Buddhism is not a "myth", as you say, about the Buddha? It is unlikely that an advanced Buddhist will deal with sticking labels on other believers and scolding about how miserable they all are.
    If you want a serious understanding in this matter, read Me, he wrote about t.z. Christianity to other religions.

    Thin booklet about Buddhism in the asset, neophyte?) More modesty, my friend)

    Why is it impossible for there to be one common religion? There will be some "church of united humanity" or something like that. Or as a religion there will be, well, at least the same atheism ...
