LARS launchers 1969

The Light Artillery Rocket System (or LARS) is a series of West-German vehicle mounted multi-barrel rocket launchers designed for rapid concentration of fire on designated targets. The rockets are of 110 mm caliber. The usual mounting was a lightly armoured Magirus or MAN 6x6 truck.[1] 36 rockets were mounted in two clusters of 18. The weapon entered service in 1969 and was phased out by 1998 and replaced by the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System.[2]
