A mobile launcher vehicle is a type of military vehicle on a multi-wheel-drive or tracked chassis carrying one or more ground-to-ground or ground-to-air explosive missiles, along with the personnel and equipment needed to prepare, organize, and execute a launch of such missiles.

Purpose of mobility:

  • going to a suitable launch location
  • being less easy to locate by the enemy, hence less vulnerable
