Do not require spare parts from Russia: new Ukrainian MLRS "Bastion"

18

During the parade dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, the new Bastion multiple launch rocket systems were presented, which are an upgrade of the BM-21 Grad system.

The modernization of the 122-mm MLRS was carried out at the Kharkov Automobile Repair Plant and the Design Bureau of Mechanical Engineering named after I. Morozov, based on the requirements of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Soviet chassis were replaced by domestic ones, allegedly with much better parameters, and most importantly, they did not require spare parts from Russia.

Bastion-1 received an automated target designation system capable of working with modern command and control systems of the battlefield. Its heart is the GPS positioning system of the Ukrainian company "Orizon Navigation", specializing in GPS / GLONASS navigation. Due to the precise positioning of the vehicle in relation to the target (both on the march and at the firing position), the accuracy of shooting is significantly increased. It is expected that with the use of newer ammunition, such as the Typhoon-1 missiles tested in recent months, the effective firing range will reach 40 km. The launcher itself is also partially automated, but the layout of the machine has not changed much.

The same modern solutions are in demand in the Bastion-2 launcher, but its layout is similar to the Czech RM-70 system, since it uses a longer KrAZ-6322 6x6 chassis, which has room for another 40 missiles ready for immediate use. which shortens the download process. However, they did not install the previously planned automatic reloading system of the launcher, which was supposed to make it possible to fire a second salvo within 2 minutes. Ukraine produced only 6 Bastion-2 launchers, and all of them were presented at the parade on August 24, 2021.

    So the DPR and LPR did not require spare parts from Russia, everything was obtained from the ukroverrmacht in battle. Good equipment "Bastion 2", will they themselves give it back with a repair kit? Sorry I forgot Typhoon 1, but with a repair kit. Craftsmen in the DPR and LPR will make one out of three. home, so as not to regret the stupid years spent in ukroverrmacht.

      It's necessary to catch her on the shore.
      And how much is that shore near the DPR? And the fleet is not very powerful ...
      The complex is anti-ship.
      Till...

        Yet.
        You will delve into the topic more carefully, to begin with! laughing Or you slightly, sorry, took it on your chest, or smoked something ... wink Actually, this is not about the "Bastion" DBK (which is generally Russian), but about the Ukrainian MLRS "Bastion", which is simply a modernization of the BM-21 "Grad"!

      Sorry Typhoon 1 forgot
      I apologize, we could not remember! laughing For, in fact, this is only a publicized development, there is no serial production of any "Typhoon-1" there, just as there is no capacity for their production! wink

    - "Modernization of 122-mm MLRS was carried out at the Kharkov car repair plant" - how these factories "work" I think everyone knows! the main thing is to push out for the checkpoint.

    The bastion was first shown in Kiev on August 24, 2014 at the parade. 7 years have passed, and things are still there. Yes, and Krazu is like a factory.
