CAMDEN, Arkansas. Lockheed Martin has delivered the first Multi Launch Rocket System (MLRS) M270A2 launcher to the U.S. Army, the company announced in a statement.

The MLRS is a modernized M270 with new engines and upgraded systems including a Common Fire Control System (CFCS). The upgrade makes the system compatible with future munitions like Extended-Range GMLRS and the Precision Strike Missile (PrSM).

The M270A2 is a heavy-tracked mobile launcher that is intended to defeat artillery, air defense concentrations, trucks, light armor, and personnel carriers from increasing distances.
