The system, called GMARS, has a range of up to 400 kilometers and can simultaneously carry up to 12 missiles. The new launcher is mounted on the chassis of a German-made HX 8×8 wheeled armored off-road vehicle.

GMARS can reportedly be equipped with a variety of missiles, including ATACMS cruise missiles. New missiles currently under development could eventually increase the system’s range to 700 kilometers, Rheinmetall CEO Armin Papperger said.

The manufacturer is currently negotiating with five potential buyer countries. The first GMARS system could be delivered to the customer in the middle of next year.

Recall that the American M142 HIMARS MLRS was created on the basis of the FMTV three-axle wheeled chassis, widely used in the US army. The caliber when using standard rockets is 227 mm. In total, the launcher can carry up to six guided or unguided missiles or one ATACMS operational tactical ballistic missile. These systems are dangerous due to their high precision, wide range of munitions, including cluster munitions, and long range. However, this was not an obstacle to the destruction of the launchers transferred by the United States to Ukraine. The Russian Defense Ministry has repeatedly released videos demonstrating the destruction of these systems during the SVO.
