The SAR government army began to use the 9K52 “Luna-M” missile systems (NATO designation - FROG-7) against terrorist groups, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


The Armed Forces of Syria began to use the Luna-M missiles on terrorists


The USSR began supplying complexes to Syria at the beginning of the 1970s. For a long time, they, along with 9K72 "Elbrus" were the basis of the country's rocket power. In 1973, Luna was used to attack targets located on Israeli territory.



“After the 1973 war of the year and before the outbreak of the civil war, the Syrians did not use 9K52 in hostilities. Until recently, 9K79 "Tochka", 9K72 "Elbrus, as well as Iranian and North Korean systems were actively used. Now, it seems, it was decided to use" L "M. At least, this is indicated by photo materials that have appeared on the network," - writes the author of the article Dmitry Lemeshko.

The firing range of the complex is 70 km. The author notes that “the 2,5-ton unguided solid-fuel rocket is not accurate enough, the warhead can deviate from the aiming point by almost 700 meters, but if it hits, (based on the experience of the war in Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf, the likelihood is high enough) significant damage. "



The 200 kilogram warhead strikes the enemy with 15 in thousands of pieces. “The cluster warhead, including forty-two 7,5-kilogram high-explosive submunitions, is considered even more dangerous,” the author writes.

The launcher itself is mounted on the ZIL-135LM chassis, its weight is more than 16 t. The calculation of the complex is 5 people.



According to Lemeshko, “by the beginning of active hostilities, the Syrian government army was armed with 18 complexes and several dozen operational missiles.”

      The racket is one of the first, designed for the use of YaGCH, so it was forgiven for a large deviation. They certainly need to be shot in areas without a peacekeeper. Good for bulk. So riddled with a barrel that can’t be patched. That's the bearded hit. And how good it started, the dough of the sea, and I want to toss and turn. And so they sailed.

    Why gather dust in the warehouse? So they disposed of it on spirits, and again they hinted as a Turk - there is still a shit about the poeHerVnits. The type will need to be raised and Elbrus will be raised.

      .Type will be necessary and "Elbrus" will rise.

      The R-17 missiles put into service in 1962, which are part of the 9K72 Elbrus tactical missile system, are no longer in service in our country (the missiles have been stored for 20 years, production was discontinued in 1988). During the Second Chechen War in the period from October 1, 1999 to April 15, 2001, more than 250 launches were made. In this way, the "disposal" of missiles took place. Oddly enough, no launch failures were recorded, and this despite the fact that a significant part of the missiles had expired storage periods. However, the combat effectiveness was not high, the shooting was carried out mainly in the "areas".
