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 US Army Modernized TACMS or M57A1 is an upgraded version of the ATACMS tactical ballistic missile with a maximum range between 300 and 450 kilometers. Lockheed Martin upgrade includes new electronics and reset of the 20-year shelf life for each missile undergoing the modernization process. The M57A1 was first delivered to the US Army in 2016 and is expected to be fielded in 2018 as refurbishment for existing missiles.
