The main advantage of rocket artillery is the lack of recoil, which makes it possible to create relatively simple, lightweight and compact multi-barreled devices. A salvo of one modern multiple launch rocket system can surpass in power a salvo of a heavy artillery battalion of barreled artillery.

At the same time, a multi-barreled rocket launcher also has a significant drawback — a fairly high missile dispersion. However, this problem is solved by installing projectile flight control systems. Moreover, this problem is not so critical for shooting at area targets, which is the main purpose of MLRS.
