Army provides HIMARS support during Red Flag-Alaska 19-1
U.S. Army Pfc. Mary Slatten, a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) driver, assigned to Alpha Battery, 3rd Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment (HIMARS), 18th Field Artillery Brigade, Fort Bragg, N.C., inflates the tires of a M142 HIMARS at Fort Greely, Alaska, Oct. 19, 2018, during Red Flag-Alaska 19-1. Slatten’s unit was tasked to provide long-range artillery support during RF-A, allowing the unit to showcase its capabilities and develop relationships with other services. As part of transporting the M142 HIMARS, it’s required to deflate the tires and lower the suspension in order to load it into a U.S. Air Force C-130J Super Hercules.
