UAE launched most powerful MLRS MCL in Yemen

45
The UAE Army is preparing to use one of the world's most powerful multiple rocket launcher systems in Yemen against the Hussite rebels, reports Messenger of Mordovia.




Judging by the photographs that appeared on the Internet, the project created by the designers from the UAE together with the Turkish developers of the MLRS MCL has been deployed in Yemen. It is capable of carrying out a salvo of 240 122-mm missiles from 4 launchers placed on a single semi-trailer.

“All this rocket splendor is towed by Oshkosh’s American three-axle tractor. Volley time - about 2 min. The total weight of the projectiles fired is almost 4 tons. The time it takes for the enemy to hit the entire ammunition load is 2 minutes. The range of the missile’s flight is 40 km, ”writes the author Dmitry Lemeshko.

UAE launched most powerful MLRS MCL in Yemen


The length of the "train" reaches 29 m, and the weight is almost 105 t. A special machine with lifting crane equipment is used for reloading.

Earlier it was reported that the issue of using 300-mm rockets from this system is being worked out.

After the first display of the MLRS at the IDEX-2013 exhibition, there was a lot of criticism of the developers: experts noted the cumbersomeness and poor maneuverability of the installation. "However, the UAE military, judging by the published photos, still brought the MCL to the possibility of real use in hostilities," the author concludes.

      Such a child prodigy could only be designed by a person with large internal complexes)))
      And so, a fun thing) and a good target with poor cross. )))

          In capable hands, this device is a powerful thing. Jokes are inappropriate here. Although Arabs can plow any weapon

        In vain you are so. But in general, the idea is not bad! If there was a developed railway, it was quite possible to make a train with MLRS. He shot and ran away!

          The railway will become unsuitable in the first hours or days of hostilities, and military equipment should drive independently almost anywhere, while having its own power supply system, RCBP protection, some kind of combat kit, communications equipment, and much more, including repair supplies.

              You can say they took it off the tongue))) I also thought that it was time to start the countdown to the moment when the Hussites turned this expensive "beauty" into a pile of metal.

        but rather, the designer fulfilled the technical task or rather the wish of the owner of the above complexes and a mountain of money))

      Where did the UAE army come from in Syria? Here in Ymen, yes, as part of the Arab coalition. Where, by the way, they are good at fencing off the Husites

      No, they did not win. The country is divided northwest with Sana'a - where are the Husites. And southwest with Aden - where is the Hadi (Saudi puppets). There is also the east - where 3,5 people live and the territory is actually under the control of AKAP and IG. Actually, AKAP has now started a large company in the South. Husitam assisted in Taiz - crushing the Hadi army in the region. The IS — repelled Akhfar and its suburbs, is now penetrating Aden — where they have some “night” control of the suburbs and several blocks.

        According to AKAP, it’s a classic in general. The Saudis (or rather the southern Yemeni tribes controlled by the Hadi) - they were transported from the east under Taiz - to be disposed of about the Husites. Along the way, giving out all sorts of Minimi, sniper rifles and other grenade launchers. Even the Americans could not stand it and one of the convoys was bombed.

        After killing about the Khusits, from which even the shoes cannot be removed, AQAP thought, why not pinch Khadi, they have both equipment and equipment wink . And he began to fight in the other direction.

      Funny designers are born among the Arabs. Now, if there was an armored train cruising through the desert, then it would be a great thing. But the joke is that in the south of the Arabian Peninsula there are mountains and rocky deserts with narrow and low-access roads. It would be easier to fit pieces of 6 "Grad" - lupanul and dumped. The effect is the same.

    Destroying 6 Grads is more difficult than this one underworld. Yes, and can only move on the roads - because if you get drunk on the sand, then you have to drag a platoon of tanks. A beautiful apparatus stood up in Star Wars, but not a tenant during the batch winked

    MLRS MCL. It is capable of launching a salvo of 240-mm 122-mm projectiles from 4 launchers


    In addition, a variant of the MCL system was presented in the form of computer graphics using four four-shot modules of the 300-mm long-range Roketsan TR-300 missiles. These missiles can be equipped with a correction system.

      Something a little too long launch time between missiles for 240 guides. Grad will have a faster rate of fire.

We’ve just got a little carried away, too massive prodigy came out, 105 tons? I would like to see how a 3-axle truck will carry such a fool on the sand)

    Impressive at first glance. But during the reload time, a serious army, it is easy to destroy it. And the question is about the accuracy of shooting and how it is adjusted, or just to plow the site.

    cram a few 'Hurricanes' or' Tornadoes' onto the furrow, and it will be the same 'most powerful MLRS in the world.
    It may be advisable to drive such a constructor on the sands, but in our native lands this misunderstanding will sit on bridges in the very first soft soil (105 tons) ...
    Unique there is zero.

    one of the world's most powerful multiple launch rocket systems


    I'm afraid to ask, what is its "Powerful" in? Battery analog BM-21, only on one platform? This is bullshit, stupid and meaningless. It’s worth the tractor to fail, and that’s it.

    This is idiocy, not a div ice ... 4 installations of hail and more mobile and cheaper than this train ... special machines, for reloading, will interfere with each other, which will not allow simultaneous charging of all 4 installations, a maximum of two .. .. but for survivability, generally silent, many have already spoken ...
