Turkey has developed a new mini-MLRS based on MRAP Vuran

Turkey has developed a new multiple launch rocket system based on the Vuran armored car. The head of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate Ismail Demir announced the new mini-MLRS on Twitter.


Details of the new development are not given, it is reported that tests of the new rocket launcher are already underway. MLRS is a Turkish Vuran armored car with a jet fire installation installed in the back. From the description for the video, it became known that the caliber of the projectiles used was 107 mm, in the installation of 12 guides, providing a simultaneous salvo. The range of destruction is not disclosed, like other characteristics of the MLRS. The unit itself was developed by Roketsan.

In the basic version, Vuran is a classic off-road armored car of the MRAP 4X4 type manufactured by the Turkish company BMC Otomotiv. It was first shown in Turkey in 2017. Weight - 18,5 tons, equipped with a 375 hp Cimmins ISL engine, capacity - 11 military personnel (crew of 2 + 9 troops). A remote-controlled combat module is installed as a weapon. Armament - machine gun (7,62 mm or 12,7 mm).


The machine is equipped with a front and rear view camera, an automatic fire extinguishing system. The tires have inserts that allow you to move even with all the punctured wheels. An air conditioner is provided in the cabin, which also has a heating function.

    Like a clone of the Chinese MLRS Type 63. One of the most popular systems in that region. The wheelbase is of little importance, this particular one looks very awkward.
    Installation weight approx. 613 kg. The Turkish TR-107 missile has a minimum range of 3 km, a maximum of 11 km, a missile weight of 19.5 kg, a warhead weight of 8.4 kg

      Syria and Karabakh are making their contribution to the military-industrial complex.

        Come on, these systems are over 50 years old. I do not think that their own Ministry of Defense will buy in this particular version. You need a lighter chassis for light infantry, motorized rifle units need heavier ones. And there are already 107 MLRS in the Turkish army in various modifications.
        Rather, the car is directed for export.

      An interesting movie turns out.
      Turkey has neither elemental, nor electronic, nor scientific, nor industrial ... bases.
      And then Baraktars, MLRS, Tanks sbsssvenny ...
      And the king is naked.
      What they were allowed to do and put the KNOTS for this, they did. And then they thought ...
      The problem is that they do not know how to modify files.)))))))

        If you personally know absolutely nothing about Turkey, this does not mean that this is the case in reality. However, you are clearly not the first and not the last person here who is not able to study the issue, but really wants to voice your “valuable” opinion, throwing mud at some of our rival countries.

        By the way, on the "absent" industrial base in Turkey, they work, including with commercial microelectronics. There are already two factories from Xiaomi and Oppo, under construction from Vivo, followed by Samsung and LG.

        If you understand at least something in the production of microelectronics, you should also understand that working with such technologies requires a lot of highly qualified personnel.

        And also, by the way, the backward Turks, without production and industry, are building a floating dock for our icebreakers.

        Now you can shout loud "urya-ya-ya".

            They don't even block us, as you can see.

            Where do you think we get microelectronics for military technologies from?

            I will be very surprised, but not from Taiwan and China. From there, too, of course, comes, but not even the main part.

            Imagine, it is made and sold by Russophobes-Balts. And one more former republic from the Department of Internal Affairs, but here I will not say anything, because this information is not in the public domain and I do not think it is worth talking about it like this.

            And I don't know the Turkish luminaries of science.


            Why would they have a light? They have a huge number of "average", but very capable engineers. Turkey hits billions of dollars on infrastructure projects (they are building abroad at a monstrous pace and are in great demand), they are actively developing industrial production, and always for a free niche and it is cost-effective (they began to develop military production relatively recently, and immediately entered the market well) ...

            Geeks are great, but thousands of skilled professionals are even better.

            A few decades ago, the Chinese also lacked stars and made, at best, consumer goods with the help of other people's technologies, and now they compete with the United States in the race of supercomputers and are ahead of the whole world in the number of space launches.

            So everything is very relative.

                You shouldn't laugh. Much more serious than it seems.

                They are actively "fattened", including against us. The same Turkish military industry is being created with the prospect of squeezing our weapons out of the post-Soviet space - they are massive, technologically advanced and cheap.

                    Of course, don't tell me, because you don't know anything. I communicate with active specialists in this area who work for our defense industry and are familiar with more than one serious document on this topic.

                    The maximum that you can tell is about domestic loose products like RF and microwave transistors, RF / microwave modules and semiconductors, as well as secret chips with 65nm lithography from Zelenogradsk "Mikron", which are actually very often made in Taiwan, because it is cheaper ...

                    But even this is unlikely.

                    But no, you are from the 5th column


                    If now the “fifth column” is the name of educated people who know how to think, I can’t even find something to argue.

      Turkey is a serious industrial manufacturer on a European scale. There are a lot of chemical industries for paints and varnishes from German companies. The Mercedes bus plant, the FORD truck plant (European ..) a bunch of manufacturers of everything else ..... Russia is the largest grain producer, and Turkey is the largest flour producer and exporter in the world.

    How would it be a clone of the Chinese MLRS Type 63.

    Which, in turn, was copied with some changes from our RPU-14 (Index GRAU - 8U38, caliber 140mm) - a towed rocket launcher for the Airborne Forces.

    RPU-14
