Qatar bought Chinese OTRK with BP-12A missiles


The complexes are located on the Chinese WS2400 chassis with the wheel formula 8х8. The officially declared firing range of the BP-12A missiles is up to 300 km (which corresponds to the limits of the Missile Technology Control Regime - MTCR). The system was developed by China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC).



"The CASIC for export of a BP-12A missile system was first publicly demonstrated at the Zhuhai air show in 2010 and includes two types of long-range" high-precision "solid-propellant missiles on a single launcher on the WS2400 chassis — with two BP-12A missiles or eight (two quadruple packs) 400-mm SY400 missiles with a range of up to 180 km. Combined inertial-satellite missile guidance system. The warhead of both missiles can be of different types (monoblock and cassette), ”says the material.

A tactical missile system designed and manufactured by China State Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) with the simultaneous deployment of transport-launch containers with one BP-12A ballistic missile and four SY400 missiles on one launcher.

Qatar became the first confirmed customer of this missile system. Earlier (at the beginning of 2017), there were reports of acquiring the BP-12A / SY400 system in Myanmar, but there are no confirmations yet.

        How cheap it is is unknown. Similar to ,, Iskander ", but with the ability to operate 8 missiles

          With 8 missiles it is rather a Tornado or a Hurricane. With two missiles, a kind of Iskander.
          By the way, Belarusian Polonaise is from the same series. So the filling and the possibilities are well known. The developers of Iskander did not precipitate ...

            So, from which "series" "Polonaise"? "Rather, Tornado or Hurricane," or "Iskander Likeness"? wink

          This is not Iskander, but rather a variation on MLRS with ATACMS ... but very large. smile
          For the Yankees, we must pay tribute to them, the first to make a unified PU, which with a flick of the wrist turns from MLRS into OTRK.

            This versatility does not give any advantages ... the main cost of these complexes is rockets ...
            Yes, and these complexes are 100% highly accurate, but what is their effectiveness in the conflict zone where EW works?

              In addition to the cost, there is also unification + the ability to give the division a full-time "long arm" for 300 km.

        There is a criterion of price quality ... the USSR was in first place in the production of such weapons .... we already do not know how to produce such weapons ... too many parasitic organisms in production chains.

          And what universal MLRS / OTRK did the USSR produce? Or what were the heavy MLRS in the USSR with a range of over 100 km?
          The maximum for the USSR is a tornado with its 70-90 km. Which at maximum range hardly hits a target the size of an airfield.

            The technologies were different, in those days it was economically unprofitable to produce precision weapons.
            And I did not say that the Soviet weapons of the 60s are more modern than today, carefully read the comment ...

        The experience of world wars suggests the opposite ...

      I agree with you - soon China will come in second place after the United States in arms sales. 10 years is enough for that.

    This product is similar to Iskander only in that it is also a rocket. The similarity ends here.
    Iskander can use different types of missiles that either fly along a quasi-ballistic trajectory, have EW modules, false targets, and are able to maneuver. Or these are missiles that fly along an ultralow trajectory with envelope relief.
    The Chinese product is just a ballistic missile. These are systems of different levels and classes. Rather, it looks like Tochka-U painted with fresh paint.
