M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) barrage reminds me of my drive into work today.
Thank you Back to School traffic…shoot your load of anger…and then you get to start your work day (luckily my job’s cool-as-sh*t but still, I hate traffic)
2 Videos spliced together,
Video 1 from Distance from Joint Training in Australia:
Participants from the U.S. Army, U.S. Marines, and Australian Defense Force, showcase a live-fire of the M142 HIMARS. The event included a simulated combined joint force maneuver, which included an RBS 70 Air Defense System, AH-64 Apache attack helicopters, and High Mobility Transporters (HMT’s). Exercises like Talisman Saber provide effective and intense training to ensure U.S. and Australian forces are capable, interoperable, deployable on short notice and combat-ready.

Video 2 POV/Close from Fort Drum, NY:
