State tests of the "Verba1" model have been carried out. Measures are underway to adopt BM21U "Verba" into service, issues of manufacturing a pilot batch are being addressed

The fact that the Verba MLRS was adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine was reported a year ago, in November 2019. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced that the first full-time units were being formed, which would receive this system. Serial production was planned to be launched at the state enterprise "Shepetivka Repair Plant".

As previously reported, the new Ukrainian MLRS Verba is a modernized Soviet 122-mm MLRS 9K51 Grad. The modernization was developed by the Kharkov Design Bureau. A. Morozova. According to the developers, the MLRS is equipped with digital systems that allow the crew to control fire, aim and control the reload process in automatic mode, without leaving the cab. Ammunition consists of 40 rockets of the caliber 122 mm with a range of destruction of targets up to 40 km. Recharging a full package takes up to 10 minutes.

In April of this year, in the Odessa region at the Alibey training ground, the second stage of testing of 122-mm Typhoon-1 rockets of Ukrainian design took place. According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the new missiles developed at the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau (Dnepropetrovsk) are intended to replace the 122-mm standard shells of the Ukrainian MLRS Verba and Berest.

    Everything will be the same as with the Hammer mortars .. Either the trunks will crack, or the missiles will fall near the launcher ... Well, in extreme cases, the RS will fly to the side and hit its own troops .. sad

        This is not the desired, but the reality! With a zealous attitude towards their country, in the presence of several citizenships, business owners can see a pattern to steal funds from the budget allocated for the modernization of the economy, incl. at the military-industrial complex. "Save" so to speak. Buy cheap metal (which has happened more than once. There are a lot of examples. How armored personnel carriers cracked, how bulletproof vests were fired from PM ...), save on R&D, materials for creating gunpowder ... etc. So there is no need to accuse me of slandering the Ukrainian military-industrial complex. Loss of people (personnel), lack of funding, theft, decline of higher education and education, lack of medical care ... all in one piggy bank. We already went through this in the 90s in Russia

          In reality, nothing will happen.
          "Old Man" closed the supply of components to the "Shepetivka Repair Plant". And the lads are dumb ... bully

            "The Ukrainian Armed Forces are expecting to join the troops," but they are waiting for the promised, as they say, for three years. However, in the realities of Ukraine, all five. The question is, does Ukraine have these years in general? So that's right, it's all blah blah blah.

      You shouldn't be ironic. They also said about the Neptune anti-ship missile that 1) they would not be adopted 2) they would not find money for the purchase. Without the ability to assess the characteristics, it will still be necessary to consider this threat in the future.

        it will still be necessary to take this threat into account in the future.

        There is nothing special to consider.
        First, the tractors were covered. And until the Republic of Belarus starts supplying again, even if the missiles are assembled, there is nothing to take them to the start. KRAZ also covered himself - they wrote yesterday. wink
        Secondly, there is no open information about how many technologies and components Belarusians have invested in this rocket. IMHO is not enough.
        There is no adequate replacement and is not expected.
        So we are optimistic about the future. hi

    Well, what are they bragging about? Perhaps they will even set up the production of PCs. Their consumption is very large, and the reserves, apparently, have eaten up ... Again, they give out the need for overmaking?

      Why then? They produce their own charges for MLRS.

        Didn't I write that? That having forcedly launched the production of PCs, they declared it a change.

    All this is sad! Especially the fact that the velikoukry continue to believe that they can do something, and the Naglo-Saxons indulge them in this. As a result, people are leaving to work in the West, the economy is degrading, people are becoming poor, but they continue to believe that Ukraine will be from Rostov-on-Don to Lvov ...

    The Ukrainian Armed Forces are awaiting admission ...
    and below
    ... the issue of making an initial batch of the system is currently being resolved
    If the issue of making a batch of systems is still being decided, then what kind of expectation and when are we talking about? And they announced their adoption a year ago. You will decide specifically there, otherwise we have already begun to worry about our safety.

    Got enough of this grunt that Ukraine can not do anything ??? Not tired ?? Has this system been tested for several years now? And having adopted it, the worst thing is that it will be sent to the ATO zone ... Then you will say that these "horses" can do nothing ...

      We've seen enough of "military secrets" on REN TV, one of the information sources of such "experts"
