Army Fires a Naval Strike Missile from a Palletized Load System Truck

The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center facilitated the first land-based launch at the world’s largest international maritime exercise July 12, 2018.

As part of the month-long Rim of the Pacific exercise, the Army fired a Naval Strike Missile from a Palletized Load System truck, hitting a decommissioned ship at sea, 63 miles north of Kauai. The demonstration aligns with the Army’s strategy to enhance operations across land, air, maritime, space, and cyberspace domains.
