122-mm Typhoon-1 missiles for the Grad MLRS were tested in Ukraine


In Ukraine, regular tests of the Typhoon-1 missiles of 122-mm caliber, developed for MLRS installations, have passed. This is reported by the Ukrainian media with reference to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Test launches were carried out at the range of the Interspecies Training Center for military units and subunits "Shirokiy Lan" in the Nikolaev region. Details of the tests are not given, it is only reported that the launches of ammunition were carried out using the standard BM-21 Grad MLRS. Prototypes of 122-mm projectiles were developed at the Yuzhnoye design bureau in the city of Dnepr (Dnepropetrovsk) under an agreement with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Note that there is no production of 122-mm ammunition for the BM-21 Grad MLRS on the territory of Ukraine, so the Ukrainian military department has ordered the development of new ammunition. The first tests of 122-mm Typhoon-1 rockets were reported in 2019, the projectile was tested at a short range. In the spring of 2020, it was reported about the test of the projectile at a distance of 40 km.

A press release from the Yuzhnoye design bureau said that the new Typhoon-1 missiles are intended to replace the 122-mm standard rounds of the BM-21 Grad MLRS, as well as the Ukrainian Verba and Berest MLRS based on it. ... The maximum firing range is declared at 40 km, the ammunition is equipped with a high-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 18,4 kg.

In addition, the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau is working on the creation of 220-mm Typhoon-2 missiles intended to replace the standard ammunition of the Uragan MLRS and the 300-mm Typhoon-3 caliber for the Smerch MLRS.

    The positive trend is evident! A 152 mm Ukrainian round for howitzers flies backwards and unpredictably where, and a 122 mm round for MLRS will probably fly home .... What a cool loader machine they have ... and the Ural cockpit was cut off in the photo, so that ZRAADA was not visible again! And for some reason the projectile does not fit into the guide ...

    I dragged these RSs twice during the service. From truck to railway carriages ... There was such an outfit in our school.
    Not an easy thing, although in drawers with more or less comfortable handles. For the sake of interest, we counted things with a partner. Then they transferred it to kilograms and it came out 4,5 tons per brother.
    And now the back lets you know these and other "exercises"

      Somehow, in the first year of service, we were sent a wagon of sugar to unload - half of the group's grandfathers were.
      I thought that the fingers from the bags would wear off by the evening :))

        Ha a car of sugar, but how do you like a car of cement?
        And the carriage of bone meal?

      I was always "touched" by this maximally mechanized method of charging the Grad.

    I wonder why it was necessary to shove the projectile into the top row of guides?

      The main thing is that the red electrical tape from the long tin in the barrel does not get caught for a hundred and does not unwind by distorting the flight path.

    I remember that at the training ground soldiers collected gunpowder from fallen accelerators, the same "rockets" were collected from cans ...

      Dashing trouble has begun! Mortars Hammer, too, at first on advertising went out and victorious reports, and then it went on and on to tear them up and down. And then there is a whole lattice of such shells as zhahnet ... After all, then they launch five or one at a time, but only God knows how the whole package will fly.

    And in Ukraine, life is in full swing! Everything as usual. Everyone is “testing, shooting, re-equipping,” but that's all, to no avail. How did they sit in g.v. no, and they sit.

      Well, are you angry? It's the same as answering the question: "Do you love children? No ... but the process itself ...!"

    Some kind of sheer gloating in the comments. Although own production of rockets is no joke.
