M270 MRLS are ground-based multi-rocket launch systems that appeared in the 1998 American Godzilla film, GODZILLA.



In 1998, the M270 model was sent to New York to aid in the destruction of a giant monster dubbed Godzilla that had attacked the city. Since Godzilla was attracted to tuna, the military used large amounts of fish to draw the monster into Flatiron Square. After the manholes were removed from the street, Godzilla came out of hiding and emerged from underground. Once Godzilla approached the pile of fish and started to eat it, the military gave orders to commence fire, and a number of tanks and at least one M270 fired at the creature. Godzilla ducked and evaded the rockets, destroying a building, and started to flee. The only vehicles that could follow it were the AH-64 Apaches, making the M270 useless. A second attempt to destroy Godzlla was undertaken at Central Park. The monster smelled the tuna laid out for it and was lured once again. This time, Godzilla wasn't fooled and the military was forced to fire. Godzilla managed to flee into the water, running through a long blockade of tanks and MRLS units, where the navy was ready. Later, when Godzilla was trapped in the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge, more MRLS and tanks were sent just when the monster died.
