MC-130J ferries HIMARS to Romania for live-firing exercise within same day
A HIMARS Rapid Infiltration (HIRAIN) took place in Romania on Nov. 19 which saw two M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) with 2 launcher crews being deployed from Germany with help from 352nd Special Operations Wing.
The 1st Battalion, 77th Field Artillery Regiment, 41st Field Artillery Brigade (41st FAB) was only reactivated recently and that was the unit’s second live fire event.
It was also the first time that U.S. forces have fired HIMARS from land into the Black Sea in Romania.
All six personnel left from Ramstein Air Base, Germany early in the morning and were back in Germany on the same day.
