Description: The ATACMS (Army Tactical Missile System) is a theater short range ballistic missile launched form the M270 MLRS and/or HIMARS artillery systems. It provides attack capability beyond the range of current howitzer and rocket systems. Each M270 artillery system can accommodate up to two Army TACMS missiles replacing 12 227mm rockets, six rockets per TACMS. TACMS is specially well suited to attack high payoff, time sensitive targets. The ATACMS ballistic missile was employed for the first time in 1991 during the Gulf War military campaign in Kuwait and Iraq. The US Army has great confidence in the TACMS family of tactical missiles which provide long range, precision attack against a wide range of targets.
The ATACMS Block I carries 950 M74 anti-personnel/anti-materiel submunitions and has an estimated range of 165 km. Block I guidance system consists of a ring laser gyro.
