General Director of the leading Russian developer of the RSZO of Tula NPO Splav (Tekhmash concern Rostec) Nikolay Makarovets stated during a press conference that the 122-mm rocket launcher system (MLRS) Tornado-G, which goes into the Russian armed forces , 15 times the famous system "Grad" in efficiency.

General Director of NPO Splav: A new system Tornado-G has replaced the Gradu - its efficiency is 15 times higher


“A new Tornado-G system has come to replace Grad — its efficiency is 15 times higher than that of Grad,” RIA said Makarovts. "News".

It is worth noting that earlier the general director of Splav said that the “Grad”, which was put into service as early as 1963, will be used by the troops for 10-15 years. However, the military has already received his receiver in the 122-mm segment - MLRS "Tornado-G", which uses long-term developments "Grada" and created using the latest technologies.

Tornado-G was officially adopted by the Russian army in 2014. In addition, Makarovets previously reported that the delivery of the system abroad is also possible.

NPO Splav is the leading Russian manufacturer of multiple launch rocket systems, whose specialists developed the famous BM-21 Grad system, as well as MLRS Smerch and Uragan and MLRS for the Naval fleet. NGO products are supplied both to the Russian armed forces and abroad.

      in the photo of tornado-g? I think it should be done, on the typhoon-u chassis and with batch guides (for quick reloading), with full automatic guidance without leaving the cab :) well let it be so, it’s good that it’s 15 times better than hail!

        Hi!! Finally, it happened. Typhoon went into the army. This is really a new system, vaguely reminiscent of the City. Thirty years have passed for good reason. There are taken into account all the comments of the long life of the city. All solutions found could not be embodied in the old system. Typhoon is the son of Grad, which means that the possibilities are much more serious than Grad's. You can’t even compare this system with what exists. Our scientists and designers worked out all possible options. The best option was selected. And the new heavy systems are already containerized. This suggests that they have completely different tasks and opportunities. In a good way to fear enemies.

      Greetings, Yura!

      The "trick" is that on wheeled vehicles (at least on "tilt" KAMAZ and URALs) we now have OWN MILITARY NUMBERS ...

      Something like the letters DK and a few numbers. The numbers are applied so far "clumsily", with a brush, even without a stencil, "by hand" on the bumper or tailgate.

      Here is such a "nuance" ...

      If my memory serves me right, and I’m not mistaken, then the increase in efficiency is achieved by the use of new ammunition that has the best h-ki in range and accuracy of destruction.
      As I recall, higher indicators of defeat are achieved by a different principle of munition detonation, which is new for the CITY, namely, the warhead of EACH missile, descending VERTICALLY relative to the ground (and target) when detonated NAD, forms a CONTINUOUS CONCENTRIC lesion zone, rather than an ellipsoidal one as before.

      This is in general terms, that is, with your own words, for more detailed (and accurate) data, you need to "climb" into the literature or refer to other sources ...

      Think flat, Colleague! yes Extensively. yes Although what ... I did not expect anything else from you request... I will explain on a finger ... what ... by the example of fishing. yes Here we went fishing. You took 11 fishing rods with you (well, as usual, in general ...), and took only 1. You caught 5 fish negative 5 bream fellow... This is what is called efficiency: spend less and get more profit. In our case, my skill played, and in the case of a tornado, the efficiency was probably increased by reducing the scattering ellipse, thereby increasing the density of explosives by 1 square meter. m. + probably some new explosives were used + maybe some "smart" shells. You need to think wider, Colleague! yes

      I think the accuracy is significantly improved, and most likely the missile itself is different for this caliber (warhead with a more powerful charge, I think).

    Still, to know what a general director understands by the word effectiveness. Lesion area? Range increase? The mass of damaging cargo delivered to the enemy’s position? Hover accuracy? Something else? Some kind of integral value calculated by a cunning and controversial formula?

    It is, of course, good to hear that the new weapons are superior to the old, but the number 15 is clearly useless.

    "15 times more efficient than the famous Grad system."

    Wow. So this is a technical breakthrough, unless of course you have missed the comma. Although, I dare to suggest that here the matter is most likely not in the Tornado-G itself, well, or not so much in it as in the ammunition. Judging by the latest data, our fuel engineers have created a new generation of solid rocket fuel, 2-3 times more efficient. Very good news.

    "Tornado-G" multiple launch rocket system.

    Tornado-G is a second-tier unit and solves fire support tasks for motorized rifle units. It is intended for delivering single and salvo strikes against KP, mortar and artillery batteries, armored vehicles and enemy manpower, which are in shelter or in open areas in areas of concentration, on marches, when deployed in a combat position and directly in the defense zone.

    In addition to the Tornado-G complex, already adopted by the missile forces and artillery of the Russian Armed Forces in July 2012, which replaced the Grad multiple launch rocket system (MLRS), the Tornado project provides for the creation of new models of military equipment. They plan to replace the MLRS, currently in service: “Hurricane” (caliber 220 mm, adopted for service in 1975) will be replaced by “Tornado-U”, “Smerch” (caliber 300 mm, adopted for service in 1987 g .) will replace “Tornado-S”.

    Features.
    The main changes: a self-orienting gyrocourse and indicator and remote target data input equipment are installed on the launch package. The machine also has a device for automatically transmitting information about leaving the RS trunk after firing a salvo (volley), as well as a satellite guidance and navigation system paired with GLONASS. In order to fire new RS with a detachable warhead, a special installer of the time to detonate the RS fuse was installed on the machine.

    Composition.
    The system includes BM 2B17-1, the Kapustnik-BM automated fire control system (1В126М), consisting of two units (command-observation point and fire control center), as well as rockets of the caliber 122 mm (old and new models )

    Design.
    Within the framework of the Tornado-G project, several variants of new BMs are being created on a unified chassis, which are Ural and KamAZ vehicles (similar chassis are being developed for the Typhoon program), as well as multi-axle off-road chassis manufactured by BAZ- BAZ- 6950. The first battery delivered to the troops is mounted on the chassis of the Ural vehicles.

    The creation of a unified platform will minimize operating costs by eliminating the different types of MLRS chassis that currently exist: Ural-375, Ural-4320, Eiy-131 (Grad system), Ziy 135 LMP (Uragan), MAZ-543М "Tornado"). A single unified gun mount of the BM artillery unit will be installed on the new chassis, on which an interchangeable rail package is mounted (as is implemented in the design of the Tornado-G MLRS). It allows the use of ammunition of calibers 122 mm (basic package for Tornado-G on 40 rails), 220 mm (basic package Tornado-U on 15 rails) and 300 mm (Tornado-S on six rails). This is the case if the Typhoon in any of its modifications will be selected as the chassis. For other chassis, the number of rails may vary.
