    The Guided MLRS (GMLRS) rocket is being developed under an international cooperative program with the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, France and Germany. GMLRS will have a global positioning system aided inertial guidance package integrated in a rocket body. Additionally, small canards on the guided rocket nose will add basic maneuverability to further enhance the accuracy of the system.


    • Began EMD in FY99
    • Maximum range 60+ km
    • Accuracy measured in meters
    • Modular design facilitates future growth
    • Warhead payload of 404 DPICM bomblets

    No way, artillery are more reliable, consistent, and cheaper than MLRS and planes.
