11th MEU conducts HIMARS Rapid Infiltration Mission

 Note.  Helicopter artillery raid.  Sounds good in theory don't it?  Name one that's been carried out with great effect in combat (not counting those few times it was done during the Iraqi conflict...those were miniscule against an ineffective, 2nd tier foe).  With counter battery, modern sensors I just don't see how you can sneak heavy fire close (relatively) to the enemy, shoot & scoot.  The same applies to these "missile raids".  Time will tell but I just don't see how it'll work without those guys being targeted as soon as they fire and microfragmented.
