The Syrian army continues to actively use rocket launchers on the BMP-1 chassis. Military experts consider them to be somewhat similar to Russian TOC-1A, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


Syrian "MiniTOS" based on the BMP-1


"These MLRS are designated as" Volcano ". Guides and ammunition themselves for them are made in Syria. In production, elements of serial products previously purchased abroad are used, ”reads the publication by Dmitry Lemeshko.

Experts note a fairly high quality products. However, the main disadvantage of the installations, according to experts, is the small firing range - only a few kilometers.



The munitions themselves quite effectively destroy the fortifications and manpower of the enemy. This has repeatedly been demonstrated in real combat.



In addition to the "Vulcan" Syrians started the production of other rocket launchers. And new samples of such weapons are shown regularly.

        At the end of the last century, our "strategists" wrote off almost all the artillery with a caliber of over 152 mm. Type with nuclear charges did not grow together, and why artillery, if there are missiles and aircraft. The war in Syria showed the opposite: 152 mm. guns and MLRSs of the Grad type can’t cope with well-strengthened positions, Caliber, Iskander, and Tochka are expensive to spend on, and every take-off is not a cheap pleasure (not to mention that the air defense can close the sky ) But Peonies with Tulips can cheaply and angrily level the entrenched enemy, especially after the destruction of the last art. long-range batteries (but missiles and aircraft are not a pity for such purposes).
        Now it has become heard again in the news about the exercises with large-caliber artillery, otherwise they would have cut it into metal, and then they built the “balloons” themselves.

          Dreamboat (Dreamboat) Yesterday, 14: 50 ↑ Now it’s heard again in the news about the exercises with large-caliber artillery,

          I agree with you. "Peonies" and "Tulips" began to slip much more often in exercises, and this along the way, life itself proved, or rather war.

    However, the main drawback of the installations, according to experts, is the small firing range - only a few kilometers.

    If this is a makeshift analogue of TOS-1 and TOS-1A, then it would be strange to expect shooting for tens of kilometers. For the TOCs themselves, the range does not exceed 6 km.

    Does it seem to me alone that the launcher is made of concrete?
