The Ukrainian design bureau "Yuzhnoye" announced the production of the first batch of 9N221F "Typhoon-1" rockets

The Ukrainian State Design Bureau "Yuzhnoye" has released material on the results of activities for 2020. As reported, KB specialists were implementing a plan to create domestic (Ukrainian) weapons for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


In particular, it is reported that the first batch of Typhoon-1 rockets has been manufactured. This is ammunition, the first tests of which were carried out in 2019. At the range, shots were fired using Typhoons-1 at a distance of about 5 km. Reportedly, those firing made it possible to assess the damaging capabilities of the new projectiles, as well as to establish their practical range. It is stated that 5 km is "the minimum distance that was chosen for testing."

The 9N221F Typhoon-1 rocket has a caliber of 122 mm. The Yuzhnoye design bureau claims that it has twice the range than the 9M22 ammunition for the Grad MLRS - 40 km versus 20.

The mass of the 9N221F Typhoon-1 warhead is 18,4 kg, the type of warhead is high-explosive fragmentation.


After a series of tests, the Yuzhnoye design bureau produced the first batch of Typhoons-1. At the same time, it has not yet been reported whether they entered service with specific units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or whether they still remain experimental models.

The ammunition can be used on various types and modifications of multiple launch rocket systems.

        "The Yuzhnoye design bureau claims that it has twice the range than the 9M22 ammunition for the Grad MLRS - 40 km versus 20." Compare with the Grad, a development of many years ago. Why not take more recent weapons as a comparison? Tornado or Hurricane, for example.

          It should be compared with the Tornado-G and its rockets. Smerch and Hurricane, vehicles of a different class and calibers 300mm and 220mm, respectively.

      Typhoons are small spaceships.

      The once glorious design bureau, which made intercontinental missiles, now boasts RSs, which are not fundamentally different from the Katyushas of the early 1940s. Even the Arabs do something similar on their knees out of water pipes and fertilizers.

      There is nothing to be surprised - leading engineers and skilled workers, both from Motor Sich and Yuzhny, left long ago, some for Russia and some for China

      And nevertheless they arm themselves ... They are preparing to fight with us. In response to your "Sic transit gloria mundi - this is how worldly glory passes" I will give you - "Si vis pacem, para bellum - If you want peace, prepare for war" theoretically, even with the "Papuans".

    And the batch is large, perhaps 20 pieces? And then the money ran out.

        With this question, not to me, but to the Green Frog. And what she croaks at you, I have no idea. But I know one thing, they owe more than they are worth.

        normal batch ... large ... from Colombia ... packaged ... yes

    The 40 km range was achieved 10 years ago by Polish Phoenix rockets fueled by imported French homogeneous fuel from Roxel. In 2013, an agreement was signed on their acceptance into service, both in the version with a cluster warhead (range 32 km) and in fragmentation-striking performance (40 km).
    These shells are still being bought - probably the last batch of 820 in 2019 for $ 6 million.

    However, it turned out that doubling the range with an unchanged launcher (even on the new WR-40 Langusta) significantly degraded the accuracy, to an almost unacceptable level.
    Moreover, the new fuel has had a very destructive effect on the launchers themselves, significantly shortening their service life.

    Now Ukraine is just reaching the point that Russia and even Poland have long ago put into service.

    Quite a weak reason for pride.

    I will add "- the development of a high-precision version of Typhoon-1, as well as 220mm and 300mm shells of this series"

    In particular, it is reported that the first batch of Typhoon-1 rockets has been manufactured. This is ammunition, the first tests of which were carried out in 2019.

    Then how did they test their "Verba" at a distance of 40 km. which was "put into production" in early 2019 ...
    "The ammunition load consists of 40 rockets of 122 mm caliber with a range of up to 40 km." https://topwar.ru/154475-na-ukraine-zajavili-o-zapuske-v-seriju-rszo-verba-i-rszo-olha.html

    How many missiles are in the batch? Two and as many as three?))))

    This is from a series of 152 mm shells from ukropizvodstvo, which come to the crash site with an ass and explode into 50 fragments instead of 1500? Oh well!!!))

    Don't worry, unknown planes will work out these new targets at night.
