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., deflates 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. Transporting the M142 HIMARS in a U.S. Air Force C-130J Super Hercules requires deflating the tires and lowering the suspension.
