Experts define the "pedigree" of the Syrian 500-mm MLRS

The powerful assault rocket launcher system (MLRS) Golan-1000 aroused considerable interest among military experts. There is still no consensus on which of the previously released samples of military equipment is closest to the new arms, writes Messenger of Mordovia.


Experts define the "pedigree" of the Syrian 500-mm MLRS


Such attention is understandable: the installation with three guides is capable of firing rockets of record caliber in 500 mm and weighing half a ton.

“Some people think that this system, created on the chassis of the main combat tank, have in common with the Russian TOS-1A. Indeed, there is a certain influence of Solntsepek. True, the Russian machine refers to flamethrower systems that use special rockets with incendiary or thermobaric composition. And Golan-1000’s ammunition seems to be high-explosive fragmentation, ”says Dmitry Lemeshko in the article.

Experts even recall the 380-mm rockets with a solid-fuel engine of the German Shturmtigr self-propelled guns. These munitions were also used during street battles to destroy various fortifications.

There is also an opinion that the Golan rocket line is closer to Soviet products. “Our soldiers at the final stage of the Great Patriotic War based the ammunition for the famous Katyushas made the so-called“ flying torpedoes ”, which were much more powerful than the original and effectively destroyed the defense of the Nazis,” the author writes.

In Syria, in the manufacture of "enlarged" PC as the basis used elements of serial 122-mm BM-21 "Grad" or 130-mm Vz.51. The firing range is small, but experience has shown that damage to the enemy is significant - both material and moral.

        BM-31 was 310 mm, 500 mm MLRS I do not know such, in my opinion there are none at all, gas cylinders?

          390 mm were. Those that are at least somehow mass-produced. To increase the caliber is not a problem, the problem is to deal with the consequences. In addition, the Syrians did not learn how to make stabilizers folding. So the Soviet developments are generally out of place here - everything is much more primitive.

          Maybe liter barrels switched to 200 from cylinders? lol

          Yeah ... It seems that the Grad pencil was cut and the balloon was inserted into the center.

            And why "cut", you can - "string". good . But here I understand there was only one problem - the complete lack of a mathematical foundation, that is, they did a “hrini” and let's shoot along the way trying to understand "how to aim this nightmare correctly." I understand that for a 500 mm canister with explosives, a large range is not very important, but a deviation of a couple of degrees can lead to the “Chumodan” being dropped on their heads and not on enemy heads. negative

              hi ... I did not have time to fix it, while I "invented" recourse how to put it there (there was an option through the neck) request ... It remains what

    maybe old soviet rockets there, something smaller than granite? just something left in the warehouses. So they came up with this miracle.
    somehow a little short starting with this diameter

      and it’s going to go up to 10 kilometers maximum ... with the aiming “somewhere in that direction”

    "the base uses elements of the serial 122 mm BM-21 Grad or 130 mm Vz.51"
    What are they connecting 7 pieces each?
    in principle, 66 kg in a hail, the weight is 66 * 7 = 462 kg approximately, it depends on the projectile. that's half a ton

      At 122mm, the standard warhead is disconnected and replaced with a super-caliber. It turns out the design of the RS type BM-31

        and what remains of a regular PC? A piece of pipe? Have Arab crafts stabilizers seen? Do you think that they purposely deliberately normal rockets, turning them into a threshing floor?

          Well, in principle, it’s right, why fool around ... make a rocket ... easier to make guides. but here is the question. make guides and how with accuracy? here is a short distance and increased charge.

    What has changed, I do not understand?
    Previously, barmaleas fired at Syrian cities with balloons, but now it’s the opposite, but the principle is the same

    most of these MLRS are similar to the first unsuccessful Israeli crafts. There was someone to spy ...

      But this is very, very similar, only there are no longer just pipes, but some kind of “beautiful” packaging. It is unlikely that making it uniform made global sense, except perhaps to "hide" the control system and "set fire" from nozzle emissions that are "bare" in your photo.
