Croatia intends to acquire US MLRS from the presence of

The Croatian Military Department sent a request to the Pentagon for the purchase of 16-MLRS MLRS caliber 227 mm from the presence of 140. If Congress approves this deal, the Croats will receive the required number of installations free of charge, but they will have to pay for the missiles (MGM-300 ATACMS, with a range of up to XNUMX km), according to a blog bmpd With reference to the Croatian newspaper Jutarnji list.

In addition to the MGM-140, the Croatian military “plan to purchase a significant number of 227-mm unguided high-explosive fragmentation rockets (HE-FRAG), which are standard for this complex,” the publication notes.

It is assumed that the MLRS MLRS will go into service with the Croatian army in 2017 and replace the existing MLRS VB complexes.

“By this time, the Croats will be armed with 155-mm / 52 SAU PzH 2000, Bell OH-58D Kiowa reconnaissance helicopters, and UAVs, which are very likely to be purchased on equal footing with the Ministry of Agriculture. The acquisition of the MLRS M270 will be another illustration of the excellent relations between the USA and Croatia, ”the blogger writes.

In connection with the activity of Croatia, Serbia is also forced to arm itself. As a Serbian military expert Svetozar Jokanovic told a blog, “as a response to Croatia’s purchase of an ACS PzH 2000, the Serbian army ordered 18 self-propelled howitzers NORA В-52 mm 155.”

    The militarization of the countries neighboring Serbia is in full swing. It is not otherwise that the Americans are preparing a new war against Serbia, in the event of a change in the current leadership loyal to the West and the rise to power of patriotic forces seeking comprehensive cooperation with Russia.

            But the caliber is a URO, not an MLRS.

              By and large MLRS MLRS with missiles (MGM-140 ATACMS) is not exactly an MLRS, but an operational tactical missile system ATACMS (Army TACtical Missile System, literally the Army tactical missile system, manufactured by Lockheed Martin with a short-range ballistic missile, the various equipment options of which are US defense indices MGM-140, MGM-164 and MGM-168. Here the author is a little curved. The ATACMS tactical missile flies its so-called semi-ballistic trajectory. From INS + GPS control systems, with Accuracy (CVO) from 250 to 10 m. (Depending on version)
              The defeat of the target occurs in the following sequence:

              Inside the compartment with combat elements is a special air bag. When the rocket passes through the apogee, pressure is applied to the air bag and BAT is separated. Separation can occur at subsonic and supersonic speeds.
              The BAT stabilizes its motion by spinning around the axis of symmetry, then slows down by its means.
              After all the preliminary mechanical operations, the software comes into play. There is a selection of goals. Each of the BATs operates in its own predefined sector, into which the entire lesion area is divided.
              After analyzing the targets, there is a pursuit and defeat with the help of a modern tandem cumulative warhead.

          Even I did not understand what kind of 300 km we are talking about?
          If the MLRS MLRS ammunition includes the following types of unguided missiles:

          M26 with a range of 32 km.

          M26A1 / A2 with a firing range of 45 km.

          M28 for anti-tank mining with a firing range of 40 km.

          training M28A1 (RRPR) with a range of up to 14.3 km.

          Where the author saw 300 km, apparently will remain on his conscience.

                So the rocket about which both the author and you are talking about really flies 300 km, but it is controlled only by the US satellite system and costs so much that these barmales in the world go without pants, 2.3 million in 2000 prices. And who will put tactical weapons to the natives.

      The mattresses will push away the old trash, and the rockets themselves for the money that will pay for this trash, and the Serbs immediately strained.

      Damn, huckster ... With printers the same garbage. You buy cheap, and then go broke on cartridges. But we at least learned how to refuel them, and the rocket from our Tornado may not fit into this American crap laughing

    Why are they confused - the MGM-140 ATACMS and MLRS MLRS missiles are different types of weapons.

    The Croats will receive the requested number of installations for free, but for missiles (MGM-140 ATACMS, with a range of up to 300 km)

    The steep shadow is utterly 300 km, I did not find more zeros on the clave ..............?
