New Chinese MLRS PHZ-11 fell into the frame

35

On April 23, 2020, a new 122-mm multiple launch rocket system on a tracked armored chassis under the designation PHZ-11, which is currently being put into service by the Chinese army, was shot in the Chinese information field on the Chinese information field.


This product, most likely, is a modification of the MLRS SR4, mounted on an automotive platform, also called PZL-11. According to Chinese sources, its tracked version of the PHZ-11 uses the same chassis type as the 155-mm self-propelled howitzer PLZ-05 and self-propelled anti-aircraft gun PGZ-09.

By design, the PHZ-11 resembles the American M-270 system. The Chinese MLRS is controlled by a crew of three (driver, gunner and commander). All of them are located in a fully armored cabin in front of the machine, being protected from hit by a small weapons and artillery shell fragments.

The equipment is equipped with a ground-based navigation system and a computerized LMS, which allows for autonomous target designation of the launcher from the battery command post.

PHZ-11 has two launchers, each of which has 20 guides for 122-mm unguided solid-fuel rockets of various types with a range of fire from 15 km to 30 km. After their launch, a special TZM with a crane unloads the fired modules and places new ones. The PHZ-11 only takes a few minutes to prepare for firing, complete a fire mission and quickly curl up to avoid retaliation.

      Interestingly, is it as modular and versatile in caliber?
      At least two "packages" are visible, can they be replaced?
      Ours, unlike the Americans with their MLRS, are consistently following the path of specializing in MLRS.
      For decades, history has not judged which concept is better.
      On the other hand, the Americans of the MLRS attach much less importance than Russia.
      They have everything on aviation.

                PS Indeed, the "multi-caliber" system (and in this capacity "outperform" MLRS ...) is capable of becoming the "Uragan-1M" MLRS! Firstly, I think that without any special problems the "packages" of the "Hurricane-1M" can be "stuffed" with 122-mm eres ... and also given 400-mm ammunition, similar to the Serbian "Zherin-1" ...! In case "if anything ... and so it should!" it will be possible to use Hermes long-range anti-tank missiles and Pantsir-SM hypersonic missiles in conjunction with the Pantsir air defense system ...

                You are angry. And meanwhile:
                [Quote]domestic system "Tornado" The main developer is the Splav enterprise. Modifications - “Tornado-S” and “Tornado-G”. The systems are designed to replace the arsenal of the Hurricane, Tornado and Grad systems. Advantages - equipped with universal containers with the ability to replace the guides for the required caliber of ammunition. Ammunition options - caliber 330 mm "Smerch", caliber 220 mm "Hurricane", caliber 122 mm "Grad".
                Wheel chassis - "KAMAZ" or "Ural".
                It is expected that the Tornado-S will soon have a stronger auto chassis.
                MLRS "Tornado" - a new generation of MLRS. The system can start moving immediately after firing a volley, without waiting for the results of hitting the target, the automation of firing is performed at the highest level. [/ Quote]

                  But what is now called "Hurricane-1M" just should have been called "Tornado".
                  And with a high probability, "Uragan-1M" was precisely the "Tornado" that was abandoned under Serdyukov in favor of the much, much more conservative "Tornado-S" and "Tornado-G"

But in the first reports of modifications of the" Tornado "(once! ... a long time ago! ...)," Tornado-U "was mentioned, along with "Tornado-G", "Tornado-S"!; 2. "Current" "Tornado-G" and "Tornado-S" have tubular guides, similar to the BM-21 Grad and BM-30 Smerch! touched the chassis, control system, navigation equipment! That is, as I said earlier, it makes sense to call them "Grad-M" and "Smerch-M"! But once again I ask ...: pay attention to my earlier words that there is some infa (or "rumors" if it suits you more ...) that the "current" "Hurricane-1M" was originally (!) "planned" as the basis (base) of the unified (!) Tornado system! Indexes Г, (У), С should "join" the name of the "Tornado" as the "packages" of the PU are equipped with a single (! ) system "Tornado" with one or another "caliber"! But the situation developed, for some reason, otherwise ...: the basis for the unified system "Tornado", presumably (!), Became the MLRS "Uragan-1M", and "Tornado-G" and "Tornado-S" became " myself "...: the" old "tubular guides are left, but the chassis, new ACS (OMS), navigation equipment ... yes, I almost forgot ..." Tornado-G / S "can also be called a" innovation " "eresy"!

                Rather, it uses the same chassis (9A52-2 based on MAZ-79111) and modernized positioning, guidance and fire control system. And RS-s can use both standard "tornado" 9K-55 (different modifications), and new adjusted RS (I don't know the index).

            Yes, the manifesto knows him! Can the shortened 273-mm "pull"? In these pictures it is generally difficult to make out whether there is a reserve for the "gun" in place?

                    Well, that’s me, glory, I still understand God - that’s why I wrote about the structural strength and drive power! Moreover, if center of mass of the loaded block of barrels coincides with the axis of rotation (in two planes) or is close to it, then the "lever rule" is not so critical!

      In principle, modern MLRSs (especially long-range ones) can fire full BK and leave the position, while all the shells are in the air!. Even if the radar of artillery reconnaissance detects launch positions, until it transmits data to its artillery, it calculates and enters the shooting parameters ..... It’s difficult to succeed .... Here the whole question is in the rate of fire and the time of clotting!
