Moreover the unitary warhead is guided, so hard to model that.

I am not judging military decisions I haven't researched, I don't know why certain move takes place.
I don't know how many operators have the large warhead "ammo" for the MRLS, but I do remember reading about it and for Greece acquiring them some time in the late 90's. I am not asking for it to be included in the game. We are just discussing.

When you find out what it was let us know becasue the only unitary warhead of the M270 MLRS system I have records of is the 227 mm M31A1 that didn't exist until 2009 and the 607mm MGM-140E that didn't exist until 2002

Hmm, not sure if you are talking about the same thing or not, but this is what I had in mind.
http://www.greekembassy.org/Embassy/...4&article=3293

This isn't the original place where I got the news from (it was magazines of the field which I no longer have)
but I guess it will have to do (info wise)

at least I guess it is the same system with some minor spelling on the first link.

Wdll if it was a regular missile 40 would not go very far, equip one vehicle in the army?
However if you had read the info on it you would have known what it was & hence why its not modeled in the game.
Thats a short range Balistic Missile if it was around then probably used by the U.S. in the Gulf vs hard targets - military bases & airfields.

Well I am going to say WTF chill why are you always so aggresive.
You asked about them said you had not researched what is it, pressume asking why its not in the game otherwise why did you bring it up ?????
You then provide a link which if you had read it answered your question.
English may not be your first language I dont know but I am guessing you could have understood it.
Hence my short answer I read what you could have, in the off chance you couldnt understand it I told you what it was.
And being arsy 40 was the total number 5 was was the first consignment

Quote:
Greece yesterday took delivery of five ground-to-ground Atacams missiles from the United States, the first consignment of a 19-billion drachma order for 40 of the missiles.
The state-of-the-art system for use by the army has a range of 165 kilometers and is launched from mobile M270 units. Aim and launch are carried out electronically.
The all-weather missiles are designed to hit high-priority targets including administrative and control installations and munitions depots

If you actually bothered to read my posts you wouldn't have said that or this latest reply.
Thanks for editing your post after I replied.
Also, please stop with this passive aggressive BS.

Debated writing this as likely to wind you up again came back to say far better articles on it & varients if you just google it. In fact possibly a bit hasty to say should not be included once got a better idea of varients & capabilities.
Pointless me posting though as have to admit I now have no idea why you posted about it if you did not want to know what it was or if it should be in the game.

As to editing post comment kinda mystified, may possibly have added the quote as an afterthought.

Anyway I will let you look it up yourself or discuss it with someone else.
