SEE received 20 systems "Tornado-G"

SEE received 20 systems "Tornado-G" Subdivisions of the Southern Military District (SKR) of Russia received about 20 new Tornado-G multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). As reported on Tuesday, 3 of April, Interfax, citing the head of the press service of the Southern Military District, Colonel Igor Gorbulya, Tornado-G will be replaced by outdated installations of the MLRS BM-21 Grad.

According to Gorbulya, in the near future, the Tornado-G installations will be involved in training for managing the fire of the district's jet units. 9 May MLRS "Tornado-G" will take part in a military parade in Rostov-on-Don.

In February, Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov announced the plans of the military department to conclude a contract for the supply of 2012 MLRS Tornado-G to the troops during 36. For this, the complexes needed to pass state tests. At the end of December 2011, the representative of the Land Forces of Russia, Lieutenant Colonel Sergey Vlasov, in turn, argued that the troops had received over 30 units of "Tornado-G" as early as 2011 year.

122-mm MLRS "Tornado-G" is a further development of the system "Grad". In combat effectiveness, the new system is reportedly superior to its predecessors 2,5-3 times. "Tornado-G" is armed with more powerful ammunition, and also has a greater range, accuracy and accuracy. In addition, the system is able to perform combat missions completely autonomously.

"Tornado-G" is designed to destroy and suppress adversary manpower, armored vehicles, artillery and mortar batteries, as well as command posts. Detailed tactical and technical characteristics of the system has not yet been disclosed. Earlier it was reported that the new MLRS will be available in three versions - "G", "Y" and "C" caliber 122, 220 and 300 millimeters, respectively.

                As reported on Tuesday, April 3, "Interfax" with reference to the head of the press service of the Southern Military District Colonel Igor Gorbul, "Tornado-G" will replace the outdated MLRS BM-21 "Grad"

                What the hell, again Interfax didn’t tell. "Tornado" is a universal platform for "hanging" modules G, U and S into which the Grad, Uragan and Smerch missiles are packed. On this system, the modularity principle is implemented for 5+. So, YuVO received 20 Tornado platforms with Tornado-G blocks, this is of fundamental importance, since blocks U and C can be delivered in the near future, or when needed.

    The fact that the development of the early 90s was completed in 1998, but only ordered in 2011, as well as the number of systems, is not a buzz. Such a fly in the ointment. Surely our sworn friends strategic star-striped partners have come up with something for almost 12 years. As well as the fact that in total it is planned (in the first half of the year) 36 installations, of which 20 - 122mm.
    We are catching up again, and this is insulting.

In general, Sahak must be a madman or a kamikaze, so that, after such information, start an armed adventure. But it seems that Mishiko’s courage has diminished and the states are beginning to push in his place not yet beaten and not scared. And Washington begins, as always, from afar. Washington began to doubt the Mishka’s democracy and principles of respect for human rights. And the fact that they say it out loud, says, in turn, that Mishiko has already worked out material.

      The fact that the development of the beginning of the 90s was completed in 1998, and only ordered in 2011

      Huh! In 98 there was a drawing, and in 2011 - stuffed with modern electronics and systems - it turned out modern and superior Western analogues weapons! After all, the main thing is not the base itself - the car - but rockets and electronics. The base can remain the same in 50 years - it's okay, the main thing is that the missiles are at the level and range, accuracy.
      And so to argue - we have all the development technology of the 70-80s. Only everywhere - the letter M is attributed - modernized because. However, this does not make it worse than its Western counterparts. Tu-160 - and he will modernize now. There will be a Tu-160M. And although what years of development? 70s?
      Russia is gaining strength, is slowly rising to its feet - it was high time for a long time. The crisis probably prevented the start of rearmament earlier, although 08.08.08 made it clear that enough is enough - you can’t sit and wait further! Otherwise, we will perish!

        a little bit wrong. It’s me that the new government, in fact, almost everything has collapsed, has created little new. And even though you improve Tu -160, anyway, he will remain from the 70s. But to create the same bomber of a new generation, no longer succeed. The frames are lost, and the shift is not visible.
        So we go while on Soviet luggage crying
        And by the way, in 1998 there were not drawings, but a prototype

      People are tired of the dirt flows about the army, from the negative.
      And here, bang-new complex (nothing a little old), bang-ships went somewhere (although this is a common thing with the Union)
      And it's nice to read.
      I would like only that it was not window dressing, otherwise it is very similar.
      They even made a film about the "black shark" Ka-50, but how many were there in 2008 in Ossetia? And how many are in the troops now? Should it be?
      And how many of our fellow amers have similar machines for tasks?
      It’s kind of sad to get in the end.
      But the list of billionaires in Forbes of the Russian Federation is far from the last place.
      therefore they will write that ours will receive this and that. And visibility is created by success and prosperity.

    nifiga it is not clear what Tornado meansГ
    they said they used batch loading, that is, if any installation can be equipped with any packages (122mm, 220mm, 300mm), then why is the letter G worth it?
    1. Internet fighter
      Internet fighter April 3 2012 20: 45
      Tornado-G - based on Grad. It has 122mm shells.
      The structure of the MLRS 9K51M includes a new modernized combat vehicle BM-21, old and new types 122-mm rockets, as well as KSAUO Kapustnik-BM. The combat capabilities of the new system have been expanded to include new missile ammunition. The nomenclature included cluster shells with a detachable head part and self-aiming cumulative warheads that effectively hit enemy armored vehicles. The maximum range was increased to 40 km. To ensure the firing of shells with detachable warheads, the combat vehicles were understaffed by the installers of the firing time of the fuse of rockets [1] [4].
      From pedagogy

      Ty3uk April 3 2012 20: 59

      Lieutenant General Bogatinov:
      “Work is underway to increase the firing range of multiple launch rocket systems. The creation of the new Uragan-1M multiple launch rocket system with batch loading is nearing completion, allowing the use of the entire ammunition of standard and developed rockets of the Uragan and Smerch rocket launchers, with the development of a new 220-mm rocket with increased accuracy and accuracy.
      Modernization of the Smerch MLRS (Tornado-S) is being carried out in terms of guidance and aiming automation, the creation of new missiles of increased range up to 120 km and firing accuracy by introducing an inertial guidance system and GLONASS satellite navigation equipment. Modernization MLRS "Grad" ("Tornado-G") is in the direction of automation of guidance and aiming, the creation of a new missile of increased power.
      As a result of the work carried out at the enterprises of the military-industrial complex, multiple launch rocket systems "Smerch", "Hurricane" and "Grad" will be able to hit targets at a much greater distance and with higher efficiency. The upgraded multiple launch rocket systems will be operational shortly. ”

        sergskak April 3 2012 22: 31
        "Hurricane" and "Tornado" are also superior, but they do not replace "Grad". The phrase in the article guards:"Tornado-G" will replace outdated installations of MLRS BM-21 "Grad".
        They should complement each other and not replace each other, and it makes sense to smash with gold blanks where the "Grad" can cope without any problems.
        1. alex86
          alex86 April 3 2012 22: 59
          It's not very clear what they are superior to? After the very successfully raised the range from 20,4 to 40 km, while maintaining the weight (66 kg) and the weight of the warhead, the efficiency increases due to the deployment time, automation of guidance, etc. I see the "obsolescence" of the BM-21 based on the "Ural" only in the complexity of the base (unsuccessful car), instability on the march with a full ammo, and simply the fact that it is time to change. But while maintaining the caliber and ammunition (there are no new ones yet, and when they are, it can be used with the old BM), given the decrease in the guides, I do not observe a cardinal improvement. The increase in versatility is another matter, the common basis for different calibers and ranges is worthy of praise. And the old Urals can and should be left - they do not ask for food, and the weight of the "Voroshilov salvo" (sorry for the anachronism), if anything, will remain.
          1. urzul
            urzul April 4 2012 09: 35
            Mainly due to reload speed and new guidance systems, the ammunition is the same.
            1. alex86
              alex86 April 4 2012 20: 35
              Q.E.D. And now the question is: the BM-21 has manual loading, for a long time - nothing but hands of calculation is needed. And when replacing the package, the guiding device needs equipment (let's compare, the MLRS shell has 273 kg of EMNIP, by hand, especially in the field - nothing), how is it? This means that a transport-loading machine is mandatory (for an old BM-21, it is possible to carry 66 kg of shells even on a trolleybus), i.e. 2 times more vulnerable (well, since there are two binding machines, then the risk is twice as much). This I do not scold - in no case. This is me for objectivity: 66 kg can be pushed even to one person (40 pieces in a row, of course, difficult), but the complete package with the ammunition is certainly not even possible for two of us ... And how, if anything? ...
              1. PLO
                PLO April 4 2012 22: 49
                nothing but hands of calculation is needed

                and soldiers carry shells manually?
                In any case, we need a TZM or just a truck, and no one will run for a kilometer behind the shells, in any case, they will be delivered to the artillery positions first, and then they will be reloaded there, and with the help of packages it will be much faster
                and in this case T3M differs from the truck solely by the presence of a crane

                in addition, if I’m not mistaken, reusable packages, that is, they can be recharged as before

                ss but this is only for 122mm systems, 220mm and 300mm no one manually charges
                1. alex86
                  alex86 April 5 2012 22: 03
                  Manually charge (you don’t make a fool of me), while you can bring on anything (for 122 mm), for 220 and 300 mm it is clear that we need TZM. I meant that in the old version of the BM-21, the loading process is simpler (and more universal) if the package is reusable with the possibility of recharging in the field - this is normal, but 24 guides on a more massive machine - only if for the sake of versatility. Therefore, it would be better to leave the old BM-21s, although they are not very successful (I mean the base of the Urals: it is unstable on the march, swings when firing, everything is electric, manual mode is very slow, etc.). Well, no one will not only run to the rear for a kilometer, but will not go either - during this time, combat positions will be overtaken by return fire.

    Is Saakashvili enough, is this of course a question? But is there enough for a more serious one, I doubt however. And that a purulent abscess is ripening on the southern borders, I think no one needs to be convinced. Scary men are different. For some reason, no one wants to look ahead for 50 years. And there I see nothing good for Russia. The fifth column in the Kremlin is working in all directions, so that Russia has no future. In ten years, we will have 90% of young people with difficulty reading and only knowing how to sign. And 10% of new barchuk educated abroad and assigned to service the export of raw materials from Russia. Tell me who will manage the most sophisticated air defense and air defense systems. For the past 25 years, a system has been built for a similar future for Russia. Sincerely.

        And no one is punished. This is strange ...
        They are arming the south, it’s good, but on the other side, the enemy also has big-headed people. They will not stand like sheep and clap their ears, but will seek countermeasures. They also have something to suppress our complexes with. And although NATO will not openly get involved, there will be plenty of instructors and weapons there. The experience of Georgians has long been analyzed and the scenario, God forbid, will be different.

          And from our side, how do you think Roly sitting !? Compare the Chechen and Georgian war, because that’s what Saakashvili’s bet was. That we simply won’t be able to respond quickly.
          And again, 90, that someone will punish you. Purely moral satisfaction and nothing more.

    And upon receipt, they suddenly discovered that the Yekaterinburg Command Artillery School was disbanded in a new look!

    It is interesting that our gunners still did not combine 220 and 300 calibres in the same machine ... Although I am sure that the chassis and the LMS will be identical.

      The greater the range, the greater the deflection of the missiles. What reduces combat effectiveness

      Less fantasies. Japan is not so small (377 km,), and the MLRS is not such a large area (the salvo of the MLRS "Smerch" 944 m, which is 672000 km)
