M142 HIMARS US Army Most Powerful Rocket Launcher Lockheed Martin
Lockheed Martin’s M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is the United States Army’s most powerful rocket launcher and it’s mounted on a standard Army M1140 truck frame. It’s capable of carrying 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).

As a testament to its effectiveness, the U.S. Army recently awarded Lockheed Martin a $183 million contract to produce High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launchers and associated hardware. More specifically, Lockheed Martin will manufacture and build a total of 28 HIMARS units at its Precision Fires Center of Excellence in Camden, Arkansas. The equipment delivery will begin in late 2022 for the U.S. Marine Corps and an international customer.

The Army’s commitment to the HIMARS launcher through 2050 reflects our customers’ confidence in Lockheed Martin’s highly reliable, combat-proven precision strike systems and munitions. These new HIMARS launchers will provide unmatched mobile firepower in support of multi-domain operations, and our allies can count on Lockheed Martin’s continued support in maintaining these combat-proven systems,” said Gaylia Campbell, vice president of Precision Fires and Combat Maneuver Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
