MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
As part of the execution of the state defense order, the manufacturers will transfer the Tornado-G multiple launch rocket systems and 152 mm self-propelled howitzers with the Msta-SM automated fire control system to the Russian Ministry of Defense.
For reference The Tornado-G multiple launch rocket system is a deeply modernized version of the Grad complex. The updated project involves the use of several types of rockets with increased accuracy characteristics and new warheads. At the same time, the possibility of using existing ammunition is fully preserved.
The Msta-SM self-propelled artillery mount is designed to destroy strategic military targets, destroy artillery and mortar batteries, armored vehicles, anti-tank weapons, air defense and missile defense systems, and enemy personnel.
Target selection and gun guidance can be carried out both using a special automated control system from the battery commander’s control room, and directly in the fighting compartment of the vehicle. For firing, guided and unguided high-explosive fragmentation projectiles can be used.
