PJSC Motovilikhinskiye Zavody fulfilled the state contract for MLRS Tornado-G

The final batch of combat vehicles from the multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) "Tornado-G" delivered to the Ministry of Defense of Russia CJSC "Special Design Bureau", which is part of the group of enterprises "Motovilikhinsky plants." This is stated in a press release received by Military Review from the press service of PJSC Motovilikhinsky Plants.


The final part of the combat vehicles from the Tornado-G MLRS was sent to units of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation as part of the implementation of the state defense order. The enterprise has fully and on time completed a range of works on repair and modernization of the Grad MLRS to the level of Tornado-G within the framework of the 2019 program of the year.

122-mm MLRS "Tornado-G" - an upgraded version of the installations "Grad". A feature is the increased firing efficiency, more powerful ammunition, the presence of automated guidance systems, aiming, topographic location and navigation. Adopted in the 2014 year. The nomenclature included cluster shells with a detachable warhead and self-aiming cumulative warheads.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense reported that the BM-21 Grad missile systems being replaced by armaments will not be decommissioned, and as far as possible they will be upgraded to the Tornado-G MLRS level.

Motovilikhinskiye Zavody is the developer and the only manufacturer in Russia of combat and transport-loading vehicles from the composition of multiple launch rocket systems such as Grad, Smerch and their modified versions of Tornado-G, Tornado-S.

        Savings on candy wrappers
        The notorious "serial experience" clearly showed the need for armored cabs for MLRS.
        But apparently, the Moscow Region considered that preparing a new calculation and paying for the funeral of the previous one was much cheaper

            In order to hit targets at a greater depth of battle formation, the firing ones must be positioned as close as possible to the line of contact.
            In addition, firing units are forced to maneuver. This means that radar reconnaissance of moving targets can be detected. With the subsequent defeat by artillery.

              Anyone can detect ... mobility, deployment time and leaving positions - this is their trump card. And booking everything in a row is pointless and expensive. And to destroy remote targets, there are other systems designed for long-range shooting. Here are the "Pinocchio" and "Sunshine" that are fighting on the front line of the tank base, their booking is justified.

                        At the brigade-division, the “long arm” is “Grad” / “Tornado-G” And it is they that will have to be applied.

                        Tochka-U had a range of 120 km, like the new Tornado-S, which replaced them. They even talk about the possibility of increasing the destruction range of Tornado-G to 100 km.
                        the fire control system has changed - now it is automated, includes a ballistic computer, and the block with guides can be guided without leaving the truck cab. Due to this, it was possible to reduce the crew of the car and reduce the time for putting into combat readiness.
                        For "Tornado-G" were developed new missiles. For comparison, a 9M22 high-explosive projectile shell used by the Grad system had a range of up to 20 km and a warhead weight of 18,4 kg. The new 9M522 shell brought the mass of the warhead to 25 kg, and the range increased to 37 km, an electronic fuse appeared with the possibility of detonation at a given distance.
                        There was also information that the range of the shot could be increased to 100 km, but it was not specified which of the missiles and due to what.

                        All the "tornado" shells, starting from the very first, were not unguided. All had and have a correction system on the active part of the trajectory.
                        That's just this correction occurs in the first seconds of the flight. For the sake of reducing the dispersion of RS in a salvo. For it is MLRS. The same thing happens with the time of separation of the head part. Already in flight, an adjustment is made for the separation time. To reduce range dispersion. Again, because it's MLRS.

                        You do not like the term "guided missile" we will call it, for example. "tactical." That’s not the point. The bottom line is that the tornado missiles are used in one gulp and they hit group / area targets. And it doesn’t matter how many electronics are crammed into the rocket to reduce dispersion.

                        So the Tornado-S will have a guided tactical missile.
                        The announcement of the latest missile for the Russian Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system was timed to coincide with this visit. It is a long-range guided missile capable of hitting targets with meter accuracy at ranges up to 200 km.


                        What algorithm is the basis of the guidance system is unknown. (The author would apply the Pontryagin optimization created by a Russian scientist and successfully used in many systems.) One thing is important - constantly updating its coordinates and adjusting flight, the rocket will go to a target located at a distance of 200 km. We do not know which part of the gain in range is due to new fuels, and which is achieved due to the fact that more fuel can be put into a guided missile, reducing the weight of the warhead.

                        I’m talking about Tornado-S, and you’re talking about a machine, some kind of shovel. Perhaps you don’t have a sapper shovel? Therefore, you’re not happy that Tornado-C without a sapper blade is included. So tell me. Of course, where are the Shovels and without a shovel? Not order. Yes, but why do you need a machine gun? Th one soper blade already missing? Now also with a gun. Cottage to guard or what?

    Bicaliber Tornado-U was abandoned in favor of Tornado-G and Tornado-S, whose supplies go to the troops. Tornado-S is preferable to Tornado-U. Judge for yourself.
    One volley "Tornado-S" sweeps everything on an area of ​​67 hectares! To achieve this effect allow advanced shells.


    New unguided rockets of 300 mm caliber with a maximum flight range of up to 120 km, as well as a 9M542 adjustable missile with a detachable high-explosive or cluster munition unit with a firing range of up to 120 km, are some of the most innovative “products” of Techmash defenders.

    And very scanty is the scanty information about the appearance of the latest long-range guided missile in Russia for the Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system. It is capable of hitting targets at ranges of up to 200 kilometers with a deviation from just one meter from the designated “point”!

    At the end of December 2017, at the summing up of 2017, the developer and manufacturer of domestic multiple rocket launcher systems of the Tula Research and Production Association Splav reported that the Tornado-S MLRS passed military tests in Syria.

    Comprehensive testing of the system in a real military conflict was considered successful.

    MLRS "Tornado-S" has already been adopted by the troops of the Western and Southern military districts.
