  1. ان ضهر المام المهدي عجل الله فرجه سوف يضهر بسلاح اقوه من جميع لسلحه لصنعت او لا صنعت الهم حشرنه مع محمد والي محمد احنه شيعه علي بن بي طالب العراق العضيم

  2. THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT IS I REALLY WANTED TO SEE ROUNDS ON TARGET. MY FIRST VIEW OF MLRS WAS IN 1984 AT FORT SILL OKLAHOMA AT OFFICER BASIC FIELD ARTILLERY ROCKET AND MISSILE SCHOOL. IT WAS ONE OF THE GREAT PRIVILEGES AND MEMORABLE TIMES OF MY LIFE. WE DIDN'T GET TO SEE IMPACT OF ROUNDS THERE EITHER. I ALWAYS IMAGINED IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN A PLACE ANYONE WOULD WANT TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR WHEN THEY LANDED. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MLRS AND THIS SYSTEM. THEY LOOK VERY SIMILAR.

  3. One of the coolest weapons on a battlefield. My great uncle who fought for a sad little man with a funny mustache wrote in his diary of how demoralizing the rocket trucks were on the eastern front, they'd push in but then realized the rockets haven't arrived yet until it was to late. Many of the rockets sputtered and killed many of their own men charging forward but the sight of it hitting all around you would cause the disciplined front line to buckle and scatter

  4. Olá boa tarde 😊
