8 Missile Launchers at Hand

Missile Launchers at Hand

Posted on December 22, 2014 by tim

A few days ago there was a rocket forces anniversary in Russia. So here are some photos from one of the regiments near Vitebsk, Russia. The RuForces bloggers team went there and took some photos.  If you continue reading this post you’ll be able to see one of the most powerful Russian weapons up very, very close, as you have probably never seen it before. So let’s see it:

The coat of arms of Rocket Forces is on the headquarters.

Besides rockets, they have these scout vehicles.

The alarm sounded and soldiers flocked outside to line up near and inside the rocket vehicles.

In this regiment there are a few of the rocket carriers. These are the first type. They are called MZKT-7930 “Combat Patrol Vehicle”.

These ones are called “Yars”. The self propelled rocket launcher is moving out of the special hangar.

Here it is, outside.

The vehicles form a column.

First go scout vehicles, then rocket launchers.

    The “smaller launcher” is the command vehicle.

  2. James says:

    Any ideas what the array of 4 green “boxes” in-between the front lights on the launcher are, 2 angled forward and 2 angled rearwards?

      Yes, I also noticed them. I do not remember seeing them before.

      My guess is that they are cameras or a LLTV system for driving at night over rough terrain. The visibility for these on the front wheels is awful and having a camera to see what obstacles you have to get over is better than having someone get out of the TEL and guide you with a flashlight.

    I like the tree branches under the tarps in case they need camouflage.

    I like the Topol-M. I think is very hard to drive, because its so long and you cant see anything from the cab! thanks for the pictures
