In the Kaliningrad region, the installation of "Smerch" replace MLRS "Grad"

80

An artillery brigade located in Kaliningrad and part of the 11th Army Corps of the Baltic Coastal Forces fleet, received the division of multiple launch rocket systems "Smerch". This new technology replaced the Grad MLRS that had previously been in service. It will significantly enhance the firepower of the brigade.


According to the newspaper "Guardian of the Baltic", now the Tornado division is participating in the camp collection of artillery of the Baltic Fleet, which takes place from late February to April. At the training ground, new MLRS will undergo training application. Unlike the Grads that were previously in service, the new systems have a significantly longer firing range and coverage area.

In addition to testing the use of new technology, gunners began preparations for the parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. It is assumed that the MLRS "Smerch" on May 9 will be demonstrated for the first time to the residents of Kaliningrad, passing a solemn march through the main square of the regional center. Therefore, the fighters of the division not only hone their combat skills, but also train a coordinated passage of military equipment in front boxes.

The replacement of the Grad MLRS with the Smerch systems in the Kaliningrad Region can be called a symmetrical response to the strengthening of the NATO grouping in Poland and the Baltic states.

      German army able to return Kaliningrad? Ridiculous. For this, Germany must first build a combat-ready army, seize Poland from Silesia and other lands that passed to Poland after World War II to go to Kaliningrad (which no one will allow her to do), and then start a nuclear war with Russia for Kaliningrad. then business.

          A small addition - all of our rubbish (in the Kaliningrad region) - is not taken to the mainland - Lithuania cuts railway transportation, and expensive by sea, especially aviation.
          Therefore, in our region there remain about seven hundred tanks withdrawn from service, and a cloud of everything else, up to stockpiles of mine-torpedo weapons. in which ammunition is stored about a hundred years ago ... like in St. Petersburg, in which sea mines of the 1915 model have not yet been disposed of.
          Almost nothing of the weapons and military equipment being withdrawn from service is being disposed of — there is nowhere, it is not exported — it does not work, everything is stored. In what conditions is stored - I do not know, but if I knew - I would not say. :)))
          So it goes. I hope that during the threatened period this can be put into operation, at least partially. :)))

            I apologize, but why is the sea expensive? The distance is short, it would seem that it is easier. From Kamchatka, tanks were transported to Primorye by steamers - and nothing, money was found. Perhaps, they purposefully leave it, as you say, for a "threatened period."

          Well, first, it should be noted that the range of the new "Gradov" shells will be less than 100 km! Let's just say, at least 40 km ... (depending on whose development ... maybe a little over 40 km, but less than 50 km ...). And also ... for this purpose, the "old" systems are being modernized, so that the modernized ones are superior to the non-modernized ones! So far, modernization is being carried out to the extent that it is quite possible to call "Tornado-G" "Grad-M (" Grad-M1 / M2 ...) or "Tornado-S" "Smerch-M" ("Smerch-M1 / M2 ...)

      The problem is that the gunners are not prepared to work with the Grad. Since the times of the USSR, Hurricanes were the limit for artillery schools, and specialists for Smerchi were trained in rocketry.

        These are cars of different classes. And it's not even about the number of missiles and not about "lethality". In the context of Kaliningrad, the most important parameter is the availability of ammunition. On good, for each barrel you need to have so much ammunition so that "the barrel is enough to shoot." This is in case of a big war. Neighbors near Kaliningrad are NATo. And only a big war with NATO. Here are the installations. We retrained the crews to the proper level of equipment proficiency. Have you also formed stocks in warehouses? Sufficient for a long war.

        Here it is necessary to notice that the volley at the city of 40 shots, and at the tornado 14 !!! But the tornado / T-C is an order of magnitude longer-range and killer than the hail / tornado-G.

        Sometimes you don’t need a sledgehammer, just a hammer. And sometimes a hammer is even more convenient. Therefore, in the SA and divided the MLRS into three calibers.
        Just now, something is not expected to replace the middle hammer - Hurricane

    It's some kind of mistake.
    It's like "In the N tank regiment, T-72 tanks were replaced with a 203-mm Malka self-propelled gun."
    If this is not a mistake. I don’t even know. what to think about it ...

    Earlier, there were messages about the replacement of "Grad" with "Hurricanes", and then, in the future, with "Uragan-1M"

      Shovels are more attentive. This is an art brigade of corps submission, so everything is true. This is not an MSD (TD) artillery regiment. Although it is already necessary to use the MSD instead of the missile battalion, a jet with 1-2 battalions. Hurricane and batr. Tornado.

          The AD regiment in my time (until the 90s) was exchanged for Hurricane, and in the future the Smerch division was supposed to be. The city was planned no higher than the division link. Grad-1 was generally a battery in some SMEs.

              Heh! Here, after all, maybe such an option, taking into account some correspondence imagination. . ABR in the composition of 3-4 ADN stem and had 2 reADN Grad. The first division previously (by reference) was changed to Hurricane, the second (directly) to Smerch. But cho .rang formation allows.
              So people got mixed up. horses.

    According to the Baltic Guard, ...Replacement of the MLRS Grad with the Smerch system in the Kaliningrad region can be called a symmetrical response to the strengthening of the NATO grouping in Poland and the Baltic states.

    Apparently, the editorial board of the newspaper decided so. But in reality, the Kaliningrad region is in "all-round defense", so this is not a region in which something needs to be "replaced".
    There you only need to supplement.

    Now the Poles and the Balts are waking up from the pandemic and screaming about "Russian" aggression and about "barbarians" from the East who want to enslave them in order to bring everyone, from the very old to babies, in cattle cars to Siberia and make them clear the snow ... Immediately, a lanky Rasmussen with an eternally anxious [drinking] face will appear and cackle that NATO is alarmed ... After that, our younger brothers will join the chorus of bunny boys and whimper about Crimea and Donbass ... laughing In short, it is necessary to continue in the same spirit - when I hear their moans, my mood rises exponentially!

      In fact, the difference is not very large Only 4.5 times.

      Divisional salvo "Gradov" 6x3x40 = 240. 240x6.4kg = 1536 kg
      Divisional salvo of "Tornadoes" 2x3x12 = 72 72x95kg = 6840 kg

    This new equipment replaced the Grad MLRS that had previously been in service. It will significantly enhance the firepower of the brigade.

    This is already obtained not by artillery, but by a reactive artillery brigade .... there are similar ones in ZVO ...
    The Kaliningrad special defensive area of ​​the PTS would be saturated, but not at the expense of MT-12, but with self-propelled ATGMs on a wheeled and tracked base .... Almost two full-blooded MD units of the United States and Poland stand at the border ...

    The artillery brigade, located in Kaliningrad and part of the 11th Army Corps of the Baltic Fleet Coastal Forces, received the Smerch multiple launch rocket systems division.

    It's strange. "Smerch" rocket armament. The officers are rocket men. What should they do in an artillery brigade? Most likely, the brigade was given the "Smerch" division with the deployment of personnel and equipment, and this division is subordinate to its superior chief.

    So already. One installation "Smerch" in one salvo destroys one tank company (well, or other armored objects) in the concentration area, on the march or at the turn of deployment into platoon columns.
