Ranking total self-propelled Multiple Launch Rocket Projector (MLRS) vehicle fleet strength by country, from highest to lowest.
Rocket projectors supply both a tactical and psychological effect on the battlefield, targeting areas of built up enemy forces and reaching them through indirect fire at range. The tactic was put to good use in the fighting of World War 2 and such systems continue to find widespread value today among both large and small armies. The M142 HIMARS and BM-21 vehicles are excellent examples of this type of weapon system.
