Arctic divisions will receive a MLRS "Tornado-G" on the chassis DT-30PM

The Arctic units of the Russian army will soon receive a special version of the Tornado-G multiple launch rocket system (MLRS). This is stated in the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces.


According to the military, the Russian defense industry has created a version of the Tornado-G MLRS on the tracked chassis of the Vityaz series two-link all-terrain vehicles following the example of the already created "Arctic" air defense systems Tor-M2DT and Pantsir-SA. Both complexes are located on the chassis of a two-link tracked conveyor DT-30PM.

There are no details of the development, most likely the new MLRS will differ from the base version only in the chassis. Also, there is still no information on the timing of the arrival of the new MLRS in the troops. For the first time, information about the creation of MLRS for the Arctic appeared in 2018. Then it was not only about "Tornado-G", but also about "Tornado-S".

122-mm MLRS "Tornado-G" - an upgraded version of the installations "Grad". A feature is the increased firing efficiency, more powerful ammunition, the presence of automated guidance systems, aiming, topographic location and navigation. Adopted in the 2014 year. The nomenclature included cluster shells with a detachable warhead and self-aiming cumulative warheads.

Snow and swamp-going vehicle "Vityaz" is made according to the "double link" scheme and is distinguished by high cross-country ability and maneuverability. Weighing 28 tonnes, the ground pressure of the tracks is only about 0,3 kg / cm². The machine is equipped with an 800-horsepower diesel engine. The carrying capacity of the tractor is 30 tons.

    To be honest, I do not quite understand why to make MLRS in the Arctic version? Well, if only to strike at the landing party landed on the shore. And even then, until you get there ... Aviation, better deal with it.

      Until the boot of our soldier stepped on that land - that land is not ours.
      Aviation is an auxiliary element for the achievement of infantry missions.

        Boots and MLRS, as they say, a big difference. I understand air defense, but MLRS ... Open defense, but where? Kolsky? Karelia? Or, in the zones of disembarkation, but then you have to be close, otherwise they will not reach.

          Our vast Motherland in the east has such natural conditions that such MLRS would not hurt in the Amur Region, Khabarovsk Territory and Sakhalin and the Kuriles.

            There are everywhere, fortified areas ... With entrances and roads. And where there are no roads, the enemy will not pass.
            This is exactly the Arctic option. MLRS works in areas and in conditions of modern war for a short distance. There will be no time to recharge and there is no taiga to hide.

              Yes? I really want to believe in it ... Very much. But I can't believe it. Because, alas, there are no "fortified areas" with good roads there.

      Our Arctic group, since we decided to defend our Arctic, must possess all types of weapons. This will be a deterrent for "partners".
      The good news is that the third type of weapon is on the same chassis.

    placed on the chassis of a two-link tracked conveyor DT-30PM.
    The device is really "unparalleled"!

      The carrying capacity of the tractor is 30 tons.
      With such a load-carrying capacity, you can carry a paired package of guides and a couple more BCs with you for reloading

        The only drawback of the DT-30PM "Vityaz" is its price ...
        Expensive toy ...
        Yes, he eats diesel fuel as if not into himself ...

          Can not argue. True, sometimes there is no alternative, you can't run after a tractor. Yes, he will not pass wassat

    The thing is, of course, strong, necessary, but I just can't imagine to my shame, and who can attack us from the Arctic coast? request

      Our sworn partners are located 86 km across the Berenga Strait. And between the border islands of our Ratmanov and their Kruzenshtern, it is less than 4 km.
      Read the Chinese program for the development of the Arctic.
      And this is just a snap.

      Of course, there is no one to attack on foot. But control over the northern sea route is a delicious thing. There are terrible traffic jams in the Suez and Panama Canals. And here, in connection with the melting of the ice, swim, I don't want to. The shortest route from Asia to Europe. Cool, but the food does not spoil. Establish control and take a bribe for the passage. Money is out of thin air, or out of water. When there was impassable ice, there were no people who wanted to freeze. But now they remembered about the territorial waters, and about other crap.
      So, whoever had time - that and slippers.

      China is already soaping up skis and even psheki, opening their mouths to the Arctic, where the world is heading.
