NEW DELHI (BNS): The Tornado-G multiple-launch rocket system (MLRS) produced by Rostec State Corporation will now be available in the international market.

The Company recently announced the launch of the system. Demonstration of the Tornado-G MLRS was carried out by Splav Scientific Production Enterprise, a member of the Mechanical Engineering Scientific-Production Concern of Rostec.

The Tornado-G operated already in operation by Russian army units is expected to attract foreign customers and it is likely to replace the Grad systems used by armed forces of several countries.

Tornado-G is a follow-up to the Grad system that has been in use for more than 50 years and has proven its reliability and faultless operation.

According to Rostec, Tornado-G is five times faster and has a higher damaging capacity than the Grad system and quick to operate.  The unit can leave the position before the missile hits the target, thus improving the crew safety, mobility and efficiency of the system.

“We expect this system to be in high demand by foreign customers," Sergey Abramov, Industrial Director of the Armament Cluster of the Rostec State Corporation was quoted as saying.

Tornado-G is designed for 122-mm ammunition to attack and destroy the enemy troops, armed vehicles, artillery and mortar batteries, as well as command posts. The system is capable of launching both multiple and single rockets, Rostec said.
