When the Gulf War started in the early 1990s, the military created a new weapon to aid themselves on the battlefield. It could fire rockets to great distances. It was dubbed the Multi Rocket Launch System, or the MRLS for short.

In 1998, the M270 model was sent to New York for a very different situation. It was to aid in the destruction of a severely mutated iguana named Godzilla. The monstrous leviathan had a liking to tuna, which was used to lure the monster into a trap. After the manholes were removed, Godzilla came out of hiding. The military was stunned in amazement at the creature's size as it moved towards the gigantic pile of tuna. As it ate, the order was given to fire. Tanks and at least one M270 fired at the creature. Godzilla ducked under the rocket's projected path, destroying a building and fled in terror. The only vehicles that could follow it were the Apaches, making the M270 useless for now. A second attempt was done at Central Park. Godzilla again, with its enhanced senses, smelled the tuna and was lured once more. This time, it wasn't fooled and the military was forced to fire. Godzilla managed to flee as the iguana ran through a long blockade of tanks and MRLS units. With a few casualties, Godzilla escaped into the water, where the navy was ready. Two torpedoes were fired and Godzilla was thought to be dead. That was soon proven wrong when he resurfaced from the remains of Madison Square Garden. An attempt was made to trap him at the Brooklyn Bridge, where three F-18s finally brought him down. The MRLS and tanks were sent, but only to witness Godzilla's demise.
