227mm Rocket Launchers (6 per reload)
200 + 200 Armor
Based on the United States M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System, the GDI’s MLRS units delivers multiple rocket rounds effective against infantry and vehicles, and somewhat less effectively against aircraft.
The MLRS is slow, lightly armored, and has a minimum range - it cannot hit units or infantry that are immediately adjaicent to it.
Costing a measly 450$ and available just seconds from a match's beginning, the MLRS is THE most powerful weapon available early on and as an artillery (whose missiles have limited tracking ability) it remains useful throughout the game, especially as a point making machine.
As its armor wasn't exactly the strongest, it was vulnerable to almost all kinds of ordnance. High caliber weaponry were particularly deadly against it.
It is highly effective against dug-in infantry, some vehicles, and to an extent, aircraft.
