British MLRS in A-Stan

The Multiple Launch Rocket System was originally intended as the long range counterbattery weapon at divisional and corps level. Unguided rockets with a 70km range would rain bomblets onto Soviet artillery concentrations to suppress them and prevent them from firing on our troops. But the addition of the GPS guided round, with its single, 225 pound warhead, has transformed it into a versatile complement to close air support. Here the Brits drop some warheads on foreheads.
