Since February 14, 2016, the French Army "Barkhane Force" which operates in Mali against Islamic terrorism in Africa has deployed three LRU (Lance- Roquette Unitaire - MLRS Multiple launch Rocket System) from the 1st Artillery Regiment of Belfort.

The French army LRU is similar to the American M270A1. The launcher appears identical to M270, but incorporates an improved fire control system (IFCS) and an improved launcher mechanical system (ILMS). This allows for significantly faster launch procedures and the firing of new types of munitions, including GPS guided rockets.

The LRU can fire the new M31 GMLRS-U (Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System-Unitary) which provides the user with a capability to destroy critical point targets that require low collateral damage when employed against area and point targets in restrictive terrain

The M31A1 GMLRS-Unitary rocket is an improved version of the M31 GMLRS-Unitary rocket, replacing the previous dual-mode fuze with a multi-mode fuze with point detonate, delay, and proximity capabilities.

Guided Unitary integrates a 89 kg unitary warhead into the GMLRS giving battlefield commanders the ability to attack targets up to 70 kilometers away with high precision.
