3-157th Field Artillery Battalion
The Field Artillery units in the state of Colorado are the oldest of the Colorado Army National Guard. These units, known as the "King of Battle", bring a lethal arsenal to the battlefield. Currently, their main weapon is the HIMARS (High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System). These fast moving missile launching platforms fire a fast and deadly arsenal at the enemy, destroying entire gridzones on a map with extremely precise targeting capabilities. The mission of the 3-157th Field Artillery is to destroy, defeat, or disrupt the enemy with integrated fires to enable maneuver commanders to dominate in unified land operations. This battalion is augmented by the 188th Forward Support Company in Pueblo.
The following units fall under this battalion:
- 188th Forward Support Co.
- Battery A, 3-157th Field Artillery
- Battery B, 3-157th Field Artillery
