Rocket weapon systems are a really efficient weapon system created to “cover” a particular location with fire, utilizing just, for instance, one vehicle with a multi-shot launcher installed on it. The majority of them were ruined throughout effect fire or after striking a mine, so the provider was omitted from battle or just damaged. Typically undamaged launchers can be seen on this type of vehicle, which permits them to be recycled eg in other systems of the very same type or by developing brand-new ones. We have actually regularly revealed examples of enhanced auto-launchers on pages on our site.
As we can see, just 4 tube launchers are set up on the low-capacity Unimog truck, so the firepower compared to the BM-21 system is really low, however it is still a weapon with a higher shooting variety compared to manned systems. geared up with S-8 cal rockets. 80 mm which was utilized for the very same function. The variety of the 122 mm rocket is specified, depending upon its type, at 15-40 km. In this case, the variety is most likely near to this lower limitation, so 15-20 km (just the current rockets have a series of 40 km). The photo above most likely reveals the cars and truck we have actually currently explained, however more systems of this type ought to be prepared. This is possible thanks to the a great deal of cars of this type provided to Ukraine.
The Unimog is an inexpensive, extremely mobile truck with a wide variety of applications, consisting of in farming, cleansing and rescue services, forestry or the military (eg as a base for unique container structures), and so on, and likewise in massive transportation operate in hard locations. Poland got 69 systems of this vehicle in the U1300 L variation, consisting of the purchase of utilized Leopard 2A4s in 2002-2003 They are the just low movement trucks utilized in the Polish Army.
Another enhanced system was based upon the Mitsubishi L200 chassis. Normally, automobiles of this type had containers with little quality rockets, however here it was possible to link 3 122 mm rocket launchers from the BM-21 Grad system, gotten from a ruined Russian system. In addition to the launcher, a stabilization and targeting system was set up.
