Americans suspect that their base in Iraq fired rockets from "Katyusha"

67
The US military believes that during the shelling of their base in northern Iraq, the Islamic State’s terrorists used missiles that were previously used for the Katyusha artillery system, reports MIC with reference to tass.




"I believe that during the shelling they used missiles (for)" Katyusha "
said Steve Warren, representative of the command of the antiterrorist operation, during a briefing by a teleconference from Baghdad.

According to him, the militants carried out an “targeted rocket attack on a military base in the north of Iraq near the Makhmur settlement” last Saturday.

According to CNN, “the fire support base in the north of Iraq began functioning a few days ago.” According to the TV people, “long-range artillery guns are placed on its territory, which are planned to be used to support the Iraqi troops in the fight against the IS”.

At the base is a "couple of hundreds of US marines." On Saturday, as a result of the shelling, one of them was killed and three were wounded.

It is reported that the terrorists fired at the base of at least 2-x missiles. US troops fired back artillery fire.

    Well, they call Katyusha all that is not Grad, even if Gradin rockets are used.

    Most likely they used raiding tactics with a pickup / jeep - they shot back and fled. Could shoot a package from Safira - 2 got to the base. Or pickup with light MLRS. Or perhaps a Chinese PHOTON with an open body and 4 Gradins of hidden transportation. It is doubtful that the Hell Cannon is for range.

    Most likely they consider any Soviet or Russian-made rockets for MLRS as "Katyusha". It is unlikely that these were the shells of the most legendary BM-13. Everything is much simpler.

    9P132 Grad-P (Partizan) - Soviet portable rocket launcher. Designed at the request of the Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. This installation was supplied only to friends of the USSR and irregular units, and to partisan units. It has low accuracy, but is capable of firing over long distances and causing significant damage, because the fire is fired by exactly the same ammunition as with conventional BM-21 Grad.

    So the "spirits" probably have something similar.
