What is GMLRS?

Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) is a surface-to-surface weapon system used to attack, neutralize, contain and destroy targets. GMLRS is an all-weather rocket that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. GMLRS munitions have greater accuracy than ballistic rockets with a higher probability of kill and a reduced logistics footprint.
