The RRVs provide two vital capabilities within the battlefield environment. Firstly, the capability to recover the Multi Launch Rocket System (MLRS) in the event of a failure, and secondly, the provision of a mobile workshop capability that allows launchers to be repaired ‘Forward’ in the operational environment and returned to action in a fraction of the time.
The RRV upgrade is just one of 16 projects that NSPA manages for the UK MoD as they drive forward with the M270 A2 MLRS upgrade programme. The projects range from a Heater, Water and Rations System, to an Enhanced Vision System.
NSPA’s Air and Land Combat Systems Programme through the Artillery Rocket and Missile Systems (ARMS) Support Partnership, provides support to MLRS and HIMARS for a group of user nations in NATO.
