New Chinese modular MLRS SR5

22



At the IDEX 2013 military exhibition, a new Chinese modular MLRS has been demonstrated called SR5.

The SR5 medium-range salvo-launching combat vehicle is a universal launch platform in the design of which modern technologies are used, such as automated loading and launching of missiles from transport and launch containers charged into the artillery farm. The latter, in general design, recalls the artillery units of the M270 and M270А1 MLRS combat vehicles.

The system has intense and accurate firepower, a high level of automation, quick response and good maneuverability. With this system, it is possible to launch guided and unguided missiles of 122 and 220 mm calibers, which allows to achieve a highly effective combination of ground suppression and high-precision strikes, as well as launches of tactical guided missiles.

The modular system provides 220-mm (12 missiles in 2 units, firing range - 70 km) and 122-mm (40 missiles in 2 units, firing range - 50 km) with unguided and guided missiles. It is also possible to combine PC blocks of different calibers.

The ability to destroy enemy ground targets at a distance of 70 km is usually used by artillery groups for additional suppression and fire support for ground forces.

With it, you can not only suppress ground targets or group targets, but you can also precisely destroy important and strategic point targets within the combat zone.

    All the Chinese are arming themselves and arming themselves, not ashamed to steal intellectual property openly ... sad
    Is it really going to fight with Mongolia? laughing

      Rather, they will sell to the Arabs.
      The Chinese themselves are still those warriors. And the Mongols are a brand known from China-India to Tripoli.

      Duc, they have there, too, not everything inside is simple and smooth. Yes, and territorial claims to the neighbors enough. As he lays down, they will externally tension and relieve them - they will tear someone who is not too toothy. Moreover, this is a peculiar development of the domestic market.

      That is not ... it’s they who are going to defend themselves from North Korea .... and from the tank landings of the invaders from Papua New Guinea :))))

        Well, thank God, otherwise I have already begun to worry not against the northern "partner" (not Mongolia)? laughing

    It is worthy. Transport and launch containers, firing accuracy, high level of automation. Something we started to lag. MIC, where is our answer?

      I support. There was nothing revolutionary about the Grad, only the caliber was increased.

        When will our Hurricane-M1 finally be brought to mind ... I don’t write that they will start buying.

      Duck is also written on paper! What justifies the relevance of such a system? + For sure, a car of spare parts needs to be transported to it (just for changing gauges).

    Well done, think for yourself when everything is already there. Another question is what they will do with all this when the country cannot provide resources for the growth of GDP of 5-10% per year ...

    It’s a good idea to combine two different calibers on one chassis.

    Not far away is the moment, the years 20-30, when the brave Chinese tyconauts dressed in exoskeleton armored suits of their production will calmly walk themselves on the lunar and Martian surface, preparing the ground for the next billionth Chinese people. soldier

    The idea only at first glance seems "sound" in fact, we get the wrong thing! this is a multiple launch rocket system hit the reptile and quickly got off there was no time to peri-target and think that they were supposed to shoot for 50 km, we will shoot for 70 km, besides, the weight of the volley has decreased by exactly half!

      The article says that the system is modular. If you want "Grad" - please 122, if you want "Hurricane" - that's 220. There is only one base. And the combination of calibers is like "she can still like this."

        Yes, I know that the article says we had such developments in the 50-70s and the military said no because * ovno !! but here about the miracle morons who simply terrorize this site showed Chinese crap and they are with a dumb question when will we have this miracle!! began to minus those who say that this is just ordinary ******* and not a system and it can’t sell anything to the Chinese

          I did not understand why Mr. Now they are striving for modularity and uniformity in all areas (not always justified, but ...). Explain why

            You asked a simple and at the same time difficult question, if you take for example just a chassis, then everyone wants to make their unit module. (But what they put on this chassis can not always be unified! Remember 3-5 tower tanks this is from the same opera or cannons on one and a half. yes and artillery is a very conservative type of troops

      Chinese products are very high quality.
      True, strictly in the presence of European, Japanese or American enterprise management.
      And here ... there will be Chinese quality laughing

    can anyone clearly explain where the skewers have such progress in the MLRS and why the Tornadoes are already inferior to them in all respects by all indications and accuracy, I can smell some catch but I can’t understand what ..... You can’t figure out how to explain xerox that tornadoes are twice as inferior to these freaks?

    Installation is not the top of engineering, of course, but it corresponds to the modern level.
    The main highlight of it is the ability to fire RSami of 2 types and a quick change of blocks, which makes it possible to apply several massive fire raids in a short time from the 1st position (maybe you will not need to move to the second one).
    I will add that the Chinese facilitated the work of calculation as much as possible by mechanizing all operations.

    For those who didn’t get down from the armored train in artillery, there is such a concept as the number of guns on say 1 km of the front and the specific gravity of a volley so that this Chinese h * renie to equal our hail in terms of volley weight needs 2 cars and so on in everything (starting from the kitchen and ending with fathers commanders) with a hurricane, the same thing out of the blue, we have a doubling of equipment and mat parts, why the hell do you need it ?? and if the god of brains didn’t give you anything I can’t do anything you understand KLOONS is an army a fighter in my hangar and not horseradish knows that a cruiser is in my bay soldier

    mde ... does not reach hyperactive patriots - the Chinese have Grad and Hurricane in one bottle - on the basis of one machine. Not 2 different. This means regimental and divisional can be equipped with one and the same BM, with the same KSHM, carriers, and so on. The difference is only in the NUR package that is loaded. Unification, maybe they heard ... And with a wave of a skinny Chinese hand, SUDDENLY, you can turn the Gradov division into the Hurricane division simply by changing the TPK with missiles. And having done it 10 times faster than stuffing 1 pasta into the launcher like ours.
    And if you remember that this is a copy of the MLRS, then I would not be surprised if the TPK variant with an operational-tactical missile is soon presented. Or with RCC.
    And what prevents to put in the guide tpk with reconnaissance drones? But the whole thing can be put on different chassis, mounted on ships and boats. One unified platform for so many ... The future is in a modular approach and unification, and it's silly to argue with that. it’s a pity that it’s just the Chinese and not we came up with.

    Everything is simple - excellent Soviet NURs from honestly boiled hailstorms and hurricanes + a modular design from mlrs, and a bit of a worker-peasant savvy.

    Tornadoes are twice superior, not inferior. So far, the Chinese have not copied this magnificent complex. So far ...
