Reactive system "Tornado-G" launched into mass production


The Tula Research and Production Association Splav conducted tests of the multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) Tornado-G and launched it into mass production, the Rostec state corporation press service reported on Tuesday.

Tornado-G is a Russian modernized multiple rocket launcher system created on the basis of the Grad MLRS, according to a press release on the official Rostec website.

Differences "Tornado-G" from its predecessor - in increased range of fire, more powerful ammunition, as well as the presence of automated guidance systems, aiming, toporavizchki and navigation. Thanks to innovations, the system can perform combat missions completely autonomously.

The use of automated controls reduces the duration of control cycles by five times, increases the completeness and relevance of information about the enemy by four times and increases the damage to the enemy by 2,5 times. "Tornado-G" is designed for ammunition caliber 122 mm and is designed to destroy and suppress the enemy's manpower, his armored vehicles, artillery and mortar batteries, as well as command posts.

Earlier it was reported that the MLRS will be available in three versions - G, U and C, calculated, respectively, for ammunition caliber 122, 220 and 300 millimeters. The system was developed at the Federal State Unitary Enterprise "State Research and Production Enterprise" Splav "(NPO" Splav ").

Last year, the system was successfully tested. In September 2012, it was reported that the system is expected to go into service before 2015.

According to the head of the company, Nikolai Makarovts, the state order for 2014 has doubled in the year, in 2015, the growth is expected to be three times.

        Not in the subject, but it should please: in 2013, the Sukhoi holding supplied the Russian Air Force with 12 newest multipurpose Su-35 fighters, Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, told reporters on Wednesday.

        "In total, the Russian Air Force ordered 48 Su-35 aircraft. This year we received 12 aircraft in addition to the ten delivered earlier," the commander-in-chief said. good smile

      Just yesterday they talked about this Tornado-G, it’s good that at least they didn’t have a firing range of 100 km, since he shoots 40-42 km with various ammunition.

      This is a good answer to our Western "partners", they are climbing with their missile defense system, and when our Iskander appeared in response and the Tornado-g immediately whined, it’s time to get used to the fact that Russia will always respond adequately, but at lower costs.

    I don’t know how about Tornado-G, but older versions seem to have the ability to work as OTRK, like ATACMS, but damn I can’t find the TTX and the name of their OTR.

    Yesterday's article on the same topic indicated a maximum distance of 100 km., Probably this applies to shells 220 and 300mm.
    The phrase remains unclear to me: - "increases the damage done to the enemy by 2,5 times."

    How was the damage coefficient of this unit calculated ?? Can any of the comments on the case?

      Yes, the journalists here misinterpreted, the Tornado-G has a range of 40 km, the Tornado-U and C, the range seems to be 90 and 120 km.

      Hi, it’s very simple here, this is a completely new system for us, and the most important thing is that it’s a completely different ammunition, it is guided autonomously like that of a Yankee and, accordingly, the accuracy of hitting a point target increases, mass coverage of areas is yesterday, now covering only targets is where the difference is,

        on ammunition of caliber 122mm. a gyroscope is not provided, therefore it is not worth talking about accuracy, especially with an increase in the distance of the shot, when the dispersion coefficient increases. In my question, there was an emphasis on the defeat rate.
        And to my indignation, a kind of stupid head off, who knows nothing about this, damn quietly, on the vile side, also minus ...

          new shells have a guidance system.
          for example, here on the guides you can clearly see the boxes of the information input system when the projectile is launched.

      Probably due to electronics, they increased the accuracy of determining the coordinates and input into the aiming mechanisms. Without a new ammunition, it is impossible to achieve an increase in range and accuracy. I think this is an advertising move.

      Good morning everybody hi
      citation-Tula research and production association “Alloy” has tested the multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) “Tornado-G” and launched it into mass production, said on Tuesday the press service of the state corporation Rostec.

      continued quotation- In September 2012 of the year it was reported that the system is expected will be in service until the 2015 year.

      Hence the elementary conclusion ahead of schedule, exactly one year.

        Against a strong opponent, all these advantages are immediately in the red. Cosmos and all these fashionable electronic gadgets will be suppressed by the enemy’s reb. Everything will go to a proven bead and manual control of the shooting tables. In local wars with a weak enemy, I agree the machine will be strong.

    I would like to read about the new ammunition of this system, because with a sufficiently large range of ammunition, the MLRS can carry out an additional mass of combat missions, from mining the terrain to video surveillance on a parachute system.
    What modern ammunition is currently being produced for Tornado-G?

    Once again, having apologized for some amateurism (although I studied at Grad) - I do not believe in the advisability of installing a gyroscope in the caliber of 122,4 mm, I think the range has been increased to 40 km - this is not done today; the same Ural in the photo (albeit with some changes) - i.e. not bicaliber BM. From this conclusion - it is very good that there is a 122,4 mm MLRS with a range of 40 km. To pass it off as something very new is not solid (the base is the same, let it be modernization - but where does the Tornado come from - or have we reached the point where changing the nameplate is a new model?). Perhaps an incorrect photo? Once again - I am very pleased with the range of 40 km, but this is just a new ammunition for the city (and this is very good), and not a new MLRS.

      By the way, in many countries 122 mm e-missiles for MLRS have long been working at a range of 40 km. and didn’t understand one thing, is it that, as before, manually charged with rockets or did they solve this problem?

      I also looked at it, looked at it and came to the same conclusion - where is the new system? The same city, only modernized. Of course, I am not an artilleryman, but as far as I know 220 and 300 mm are Hurricane and Tornado. Correct, if not right. Then how-replaceable guides?
      1. alex86
        alex86 26 December 2013 21: 26
        I think so - since the Tornado was shown on the new platform, and there was the possibility of replacing the package of guides, then the illustration for the article is either illiteracy or a deliberate distortion of reality - we report on the presence of Tornado-G, posing as an upgrade (albeit significant, though, in my opinion, the improvement of the data preparation system for shooting - and in fact this is the essence of modernization) BM-21 Grad. At the same time, I have deep respect for the City.

          This is what the chief of the MFA of the RF Armed Forces, Lieutenant-General Bogatinov, said: "Work is underway to increase the firing range of multiple launch rocket systems. The creation of a new multiple launch rocket system is nearing completion. "Hurricane-1M" with batch loading, which allows the use of the entire ammunition of standard and developing rockets of the Uragan and Smerch MLRS, with the development of a new 220-mm rocket with increased accuracy and accuracy.
          Modernization of MLRS "Smerch" ("Tornado-S") in terms of automation of guidance and aiming, the creation of new missiles of increased range up to 120 km and firing accuracy due to the introduction of an inertial guidance system and GLONASS satellite navigation equipment. Modernization of MLRS "Grad" ("Tornado-G") conducted in the direction of guidance and aiming automation, the creation of a new missile of increased power.
          As a result of the work carried out at the enterprises of the military-industrial complex, multiple launch rocket systems "Smerch", "Uragan" and "Grad" will be able to hit targets at a much greater distance and with higher efficiency. The modernized multiple launch rocket systems will enter service in the near future. "

    About the range 100km for ,, Tornado-G ,,. Why does such a system need such a range? But there was such a classification for artillery: regimental, divisional, corps, and they were called for nothing rocket artillery. ? You can create a missile 100km range, which will consist of only one engine, but where is the point? If the developers have created such a super-engine that the eras can fly far-away, it may be more meaningful in reducing the size and weight of the engine, increasing the combat part and sending it to the well-known 20-40km? And what will be the dispersion of eres on the 100km range? Aside from the goal for a kilometer? So, it is necessary to put a correction system, and only a meriktsi can afford a correction system for such a (comparatively), small-caliber, (low-power) ammunition. In any case, not Russia, with its perpetual shortage of funds due to perpetual superfaction.

    “Victory has a thousand fathers, and defeat is always an orphan”
    I would only like to clarify a little from the respected Nikolai Aleksandrovich Makarovets, what does he and the Alloy he lead have to do with the development and production of combat vehicles from the Tornado-G MLRS?
    It seems to me that the victorious reports on this issue should be given by Motovilikhinskie Zavody OJSC and their gene. director N.Yu. Bukhvalov
