High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems are gaining more attention for their power and ability.
18th Field Artillery at Fort Bragg, which has two of the active-duty Army's five HIMARS units, knows that means deployments are likely.
I got to hang with 3-321st FAR, 18th Field Artillery this week to observer their training. The unit is set to deploy at some point this year.
The unit could play a key role if sent to the Middle East, where they would partly be taking out the enemy's anti-aircraft systems so the US Air Force could swiftly perform airstrikes.
