The new "Tornado-S" MLRS will cover the eastern direction, the Eastern Military District will be reinforced with new multiple launch rocket systems, the principal decision on the supply of the "Tornado-S" MLRS to the artillery missile brigades has already been made.


The military department has decided to equip the rocket brigades of the Eastern Military District with the new Tornado-S MLRS, which will replace the Smerch MLRS. The delivery of the complexes will be made as the state defense order is fulfilled, the 338th Guards Rocket Artillery Dvinskaya Order of Alexander Nevsky Brigade, stationed in the city of Ussuriysk, Primorsky Territory, will be the first to switch to the new complexes.

As reported "News" with reference to a military source, together with the MLRS, the brigade will receive new high-precision ammunition along with conventional ones. There is no information yet about the rearmament of other units.

The first MLRS "Tornado-S" produced by "Motovilikhinskiye Zavody" began to enter the troops in 2017. The complexes were supplied to the Southern and Western military districts, now the turn has come to the Eastern.

The Tornado-S was developed as a replacement for the Smerch MLRS. Like the Tornado, the Tornado-S has 12 guides for 300-mm rockets. A key feature of the new MLRS is the automated guidance and fire control system (ASUNO), which allows you to simultaneously control the firing of the division, automatically calculate target data and direct the guide packets in horizontal and vertical planes. Tornado-S missiles can be adjusted in flight, which significantly increased the accuracy of hitting a target at a distance of more than 100 km. The control adjustment system is located directly in the rocket.

"Tornado-S" - the most powerful and long-range MLRS. The missile range is up to 120 km. The developers promised to increase it to 200 km. The installation allows you to hit objects at the entire tactical depth of the battle formations of the enemy. Moreover, these systems can be quickly transferred from one section to another. Columns of wheeled vehicles are capable of making rolls up to 300-500 km per day. MLRS tests were held in the 2015 year.

      "Tornado-S" - the most powerful and long-range MLRS. The missile's flight range is up to 120 km. The developers promised to increase it to 200 km.
      Chinese PHL-03s have a BG of 190 kg (150 for a Tornado ". Range-220 km.
      When firing 750-mm КР BRE8 up to 360 km. Reload time - 20 min.
      Tornado has 36 minutes.
      And there is also the Israeli Lynx MODULAR system, Weight BG-125 kg. At the same time, the weight of the rocket itself is 450 kg (Tornado-800 kg.). The reload time is 10 minutes!
      Who knows why the MODULAR MLRS 9K512 Uragan-1M was not adopted?
      PS The Tornado-S has no equal in accuracy yet. It would be good to increase the weight of the BG at the same time.

        Why didn't they adopt the MODULAR MLRS 9K512 "Uragan-1M"?

        Actually, a number of Uragan-1M MLRS are in service ...

      Well, perhaps just to greet ... Because with such a range, the Japanese will, smiling, contemplate how missiles will fall into the Sea of ​​Japan

      Unfortunately, the Tornado only covers half of Hokkaido.

        Hokkaido is the least populous island in Japan. On average, about 70 people per sq. km.
        For the Japanese, the real threat is to keep Honshu at gunpoint.
        But this, of course, is not about MLRS.

        Interestingly, the theme with the bicaliber "Hurricane-1M" and died in the Bose?
        For a long time nothing has been heard about him.
        Or the caliber 220mm was considered unpromising.

          The range of 35 km is not very good today.
          There will be no more Hurricane. hi

    Not bad for a start ... after all, a mobile system can always be transferred to the liberated territories of the ancient Ainu!

    It is not clear against whom these systems are being deployed in Primorye? With the Chinese like peace-friendship-chewing gum. Eun does not even think of rolling a barrel at us. Japan is far away. Even the declared transfer range of 500 km. for a day does not say anything. For DV, these are not distances at all. Even if he will move for weeks on the march, starting from Ussuriisk, he will not find enemies anyway.
    Was there really no place for them in the western direction?

      If in other directions there was saturation with new materiel, then why should the Eastern District remain a poor relative?

      At the request of the Sumerians, they pushed them aside, otherwise, in case of close proximity, diarrhea happens to them from fear. lol
