M270 MLRS

Freaking Finally!

The lovechild between an American engineer and a Soviet rocket launcher, the M270 combines the raw firepower of a multi-rocket launching system (MLRS) with the laser guidance systems of modern artillery warheads. Despite its yankee heritage, the M270 is used around the world by NATO countries looking for a long-ranged artillery system that can hit harder than any other weapon on the battlefield, short of dropping bombs and nukes.

A strategic weapon, these units were almost always classed at the division level thanks to the logistical strain, and the immense range one of these systems can fire up to. As with other Battlefront artillery pieces, this thing that should be sitting beyond 25km from the battlefield is here to support your forces half a mile away from the front.

Freedom sending down that steel rain

Finally the US gets a cheep anti-infantry Salvo template that doesn't come strapped to a pair of wings, either fixed or rotary.

I declare this an infantry free zone in the name of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The M270 MLRS is an artillery system that uses a variety of warheads to pulverize enemy positions of all sorts. Coming in at 3 points apiece (more than the Abbot and M109), this unit is the British answer to infantry and BMP hordes when the M109 just won’t do. When using the M270, make sure you screen it with some troops. Units like the Abbot and the M109 can fire directly if needed, but the M270 literally has no other weapons to speak of.

Gotta be special with the name, eh Germany?
