The Brazilian Army's Logistic Command received its first five launching vehicles (Universal Multiple Launcher: AV-LMU) of the ASTROS Mk 6 (Artillery Saturation Rocket System) multiple launch rocket system (MLRS), a key part of Brazil's ASTROS 2020 project.

The equipment was delivered as 'pre-delivery inspection' vehicles and final delivery is slated for early 2014, a Brazilian Army spokesperson told IHS Jane's.
Ultimately, the ASTROS 2020 MLRS is meant to give Brazil's army a high-precision, long-range fire support asset that could notionally bolster deterrence along Brazil's massive borders.
The first partially equipped battery will be inducted in February 2014 and be outfitted with six AV-LMUs, one ammunition resupply vehicle (AV-RMD), one battalion-level command-and-control vehicle (AV-VCC: for co-ordination of three batteries), and one meteorological mobile station (AV-MET), the spokesperson added.
The systems will be operated by a Missiles and Rockets Group to be established in Formosa, State of Goiás, where the three batteries of ASTROS II Mk 3s are based and operated by the 6st Multiple Launchers Rockets Group, which will be renamed as 6st Missiles and Rockets Group. Deliveries are expected to conclude in 2018.
