Tankograd Militärfahrzeug Spezial No. 5029: Modern German Army Rocket Artillery
In the weapons arsenal of the Bundeswehr of the Cold War tactical ground-to-ground rocket systems played a key role to fulfil the demanded tasks within NATO both in conventional and nuclear battle scenarios. In the early years of the Bundeswehr the military rockets were exclusively of American origin, with the systems Honest John, Sergeant and Lance being actively deployed. Back then the US Army did not possess any multiple-launch rocket systems, and it was more focused on the development of heavy rocket artillery weapon systems that could launch one rocket and that were mainly earmarked for use with nuclear warheads. This explains why the German Bundeswehr did not field a multiple launch rocket system in its early years. Only when it began to develop modern domestic weapon systems which included a requirement for a powerful artillery system to engage area targets the LARS 1 could finally be introduced. Illustrated with 99 b&w photos and 12 colour photographs.
