You’ve seen them launch. You’ve seen them land. Now you can watch the entire sequence in one video. A Syrian military drone records a multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) sending hundreds of deadly warheads on to a rebel position in Latakia. The impacts blanket an area hundreds of meters across. That barrage would be terrifying, and possibly deadly, to be caught in, but as you can see, the hilly terrain accompanied by the low angle (compared to a mortar system) rockets, give the rebels plenty of places to hide in the low ground and on the back side of the hills. Interesting video.
