Russian ground forces in 2011 will buy a number of new multiple launch rocket systems "Tornado-G". On this, as reported by "Interfax", said a representative of the press service of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Ground Forces Sergey Vlasov. According to him, the new system will replace the already outdated MLRS "Grad".
On the new MRL little is known. Presumably, the "Tornado-G" is bikalibernoy system capable of firing 122-bit and 300-millimeter bullets. Presumably, the installation will be based on the MAZ-543M. Vlasov said "Tornado-G" is "much more efficient than their predecessors, by increasing the power of ammunition (a measure of the effectiveness of the weapon at the target — note), as well as the implementation of automated guidance and targeting, survey and navigation that allows you to operate autonomously '.
