Rheinmetall and Lockheed Martin presented a new MLRS GMARS, one might say this is an improved MLRS HIMARS. The GMARS MLRS is equipped with inertial navigation and a target guidance system using a GPS system. The GMARS MLRS will subsequently replace the German MARS-2 MLRS. The MLRS is placed on a more powerful HX 8x8 truck chassis from Rheinmetall and is equipped with a two-hull launch system from Lockheed Martin. The GMARS MLRS can use GMLRS rockets with a range of more than 70 kilometers, ER GMLRS with a range of up to 150 kilometers and ATACMS missiles capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 300 kilometers. New PrSM ballistic missiles with a range of more than 400 kilometers can also be launched. The GMARS MLRS is unified with the M270 MLRS and the HIMARS MLRS to simplify its use in NATO armies. The mass of the GMARS MLRS is 31,140 kg; at full load it reaches 42,240 kg. The GMARS MLRS reaches speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour and has a range of up to 700 km.
