New missiles for MLRS "Tornado-S" were tested

The Russian Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) has received a new missile of increased range and special accuracy. How do they transmit "News" with reference to the Ministry of Defense, the new ammunition has already been tested.


The Ministry of Defense explained that one salvo of the MLRS "Tornado-S" is capable of hitting several targets at once. Before the launch, the necessary data for each ammunition is entered into the system separately (if necessary) and after the launch, the missiles hit each of their targets, having the ability to turn around after the launch. The MLRS is equipped with GLONASS signal reception equipment and an automated guidance and fire control system. In addition, the system itself can receive and process information from reconnaissance vehicles and drones.

New ammunition has already been tested. At the recent exercises at the Kapustin Yar training ground, a new automated control system was tested, combining the Tornado-S MLRS and the Iskander-M OTRK, at which the missile division of the Eastern Military District and the rocket division of the Southern Military District interacted. During the practice, combat firing of MLRS and OTRK took place.

Before the appearance of new missiles, the declared range of fire of the Tornado-S MLRS was 120 km. The flight range of the new ammunition was not reported, but earlier the developers promised to "hold out up to 200 km."

The Tornado-S was developed as a replacement for the Smerch MLRS. The MLRS has 12 guides for 300 mm missiles. The installation allows you to hit targets to the entire tactical depth of the enemy's battle formations. At the same time, these systems can be quickly transferred from one section to another. Columns of wheeled vehicles are capable of throwing up to 300-500 km per day. MLRS tests took place in 2015.

    In terms of range, it does not yet reach the Polonaise, well, maybe better in accuracy.

    Will it fly from the territory of the BR to Warsaw? Just wondering. repeatWhat would be neat ...

      BR has Polonaises. They fly up to 300 km.
      The accuracy is not known, but Warsaw doesn't care. She is in NATO.

    Longer range means less throw weight, less range, more explosive power. A reasonable balance is needed here, which depends on possible counter-battery responses.

    here is the news that can be realistically assessed, this is not flights to the moon, and I believe that at least in this area and not only there is progress in our tactical defense, our country lives not only with Sarmatians and Yars, the god of war with the second artillery, let's say our best in the world all systems both towed and self-propelled are excellent, but the arrival of new technology in the troops is slow, but you understand the Russian Federation this is far from the USSR for industrial production

        It's a pity that they are silent about the missile range. An ultra-long-range missile.
        Russian multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) "Tornado-S" received a unique ultra-long-range missile. In addition to the increased flight distance, the ammunition is particularly accurate. The parameters of the missile flight are entered into the system, and after the launch they turn each one to its target. Thanks to this, the rocket launcher can hit several objects at once in one salvo.

        New ammunition for the Tornado-S was tested at a recent exercise at the Kapustin Yar training ground, Izvestia sources in the military department said. There, the missile forces and artillery (MFA) worked out a new automated control system, which makes it possible to combine the Tornado-S MLRS and the Iskander-M complexes. During the maneuvers, the missile battalion of the Eastern Military District operated in conjunction with the jet battalion from the Southern District.

        The range of the "Iskander" is about 500 km, which is more than the range of the MLRS missiles. Until now, the declared flight range of the Tornado-S missiles was about 120 km. How much this parameter has increased with the new ammunition is not disclosed. However, the developers have previously promised to hold out up to 200 km.

      Not really. This, as before, is an RS with an INS and the possibility of correction, but now they are capable of changing the course, and then again in a straight line until the sub-BP is shot over the target. They differ from the classical missile in simplicity, cheapness, lack of maneuvering and seeker.

      I wanted to note the compliance with the requirements of the time, network centricity, etc., but realized that I would have to cite the entire article winked

    They gave the opportunity to OTRK. There are pros and cons. Let's take a look.

      All missiles of this caliber are already being released guided.
      Making a salvo of such expensive missiles in the MLRS version is throwing money away.

        Well, there are two ways. If a point target is assigned to each missile in the salvo, then this is effective. A mass launch will make it possible to hit at least something by overloading the air defense. And if it is purely in terms of area, it is wasteful. Again, guided missiles can be hidden in a conventional salvo by aiming at the highest priority targets. Can be used where Iskander is redundant.

          Don't forget, the missiles of the Soviet Smerch were originally guided. And this does not prevent them from being applied across areas.
          It's just that the new missiles will have a more expensive and more accurate control system.

          Another question is whether they did something stupid by giving the "Smerch" RS the ability to hit point targets ... Could. Fashion is a terrible thing.

            Well, they were more likely to keep the trajectory and were not controlled. We neutralized external influences. But at least they had steering surfaces. The new system against the background of cheaper electronics may not be more expensive. It is unclear what are being induced. By GLONASS? Inertial?
            Why don't you like the ability to hit point targets? Iskander is expensive and in some cases redundant. Plus the ability to target several missiles in a salvo at priority targets. For example, for buried shelters. With a concrete-piercing warhead.

          And where did you, garri-lin, and you, voyaka uh, get the idea that these are already full-fledged missiles, and cost accordingly?
          Again, guided missiles can be hidden in a conventional salvo by aiming at the highest priority targets.

          If they have a different signature or behave in a salvo, like an SD, or differ from other RS ​​in any other way, this will allow air defense to select them in a salvo and destroy them with priority. Yes, and you are right - it is expensive and inexpedient - that is, OTRK.
          So you are hardly right about SD.

            Why would they have a different signature if it was a conventional rocket with a different filling?
            The correction maneuver will be performed at the last stage and will not give the air defense time to react.
            What is in service from OTRK? Iskander? Point? Accurate targets in the front line with what to hit? Iskander? Or call the aviation?

              I will not argue at all, because here I completely agree with you yes
              I will only note that if the filling and equipment are partially changed, and without equipping with expensive components, such as the GOS, then the cost will still be comparable to that of the RS MLRS, and not the UR OTRK.

                So they did something like that. Previously, the Tornado's rockets could keep their trajectory. Now they can turn to a pre-selected point. Of the big changes, only the increase in range. I hope not to the detriment of warheads and new propellants thanks.

        Why just in one gulp? request "Tornado", and any modern MLRS may well fire single missiles.

          In a salvo, because conventional missile launchers at long distances spread missiles
          hundreds of meters. A single rocket at 70 km will give KVO 300 m, no less.
          A volley is a blow to the area. Someone will definitely get there.
          For this reason, all countries are now remaking RZSO (except for the Grad - this is unprofitable)
          on precision rockets. Nozzle in front - nozzle behind, and seeker.

            Participating in the Soviet legacy, Belarus and China are quite modernizing themselves and creating new MLRS.
            Whoever removes is the one who has no other choice due to the lack of appropriate technologies: of course, it is better to spend money on alteration than to put everything into milk and not complete a combat mission with unpredictable consequences or buy new and expensive missiles in addition to even more expensive launchers and the whole supply chain, starting with personnel retraining.

              Conversely smile
              Converting rockets from unguided to guided requires much more complex technologies than producing new rockets - unguided.
              The GOS appears in the controlled ones - a complex and expensive electronic unit.
