U.S. Marines from 3rd Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, demonstrate the long-range artillery capabilities of the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System during Talisman Sabre 2015.

The M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a U.S. light multiple rocket launcher mounted on a standard Army Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) truck frame.

The HIMARS carries six rockets or one MGM-140 ATACMS missile on the U.S. Army’s new Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) five-ton truck, and can launch the entire Multiple Launch Rocket System Family of Munitions (MFOM). HIMARS is interchangeable with the MLRS M270A1, carrying half the rocket load. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIMARS)
