China moves troops to North Korean Boarder
(April 12th 2013) Video footage has been found of China sending tanks and troops to the North Korean Border. Although China would NOT likely back North Korea in a conflict, they may have to deal with a refugee problem if a war does break out. It is also possible that China may want to take control of North Korea should the current regime collapse.
The HIMARS is the newest member of the MLRS launcher family and carries a single six-pack of rockets or one ATACMS missile on the Army's Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) 5-ton truck, and can launch the entire MLRS family of munitions. It was successfully combat-tested in Operation Iraqi Freedom. HIMARS is C-130 transportable and can be deployed into areas previously inaccessible to heavier tracked launchers. It also incorporates the self-loading, autonomous features that have made MLRS the premier rocket artillery system in the world. The HIMARS fire control system, electronics and communications units are interchangeable with the existing MLRS M270A1 launcher, and the crew and training are the same.
