They need less time for aiming than “Grad”, but the destruction range remains the same – 40-100 km. “Tornado” is a new supply for the Russian Far East, while “Grad” has been used here for over fifty years.

  1. These people will soon use their skills in Ukraine or near the border with Ukraine.

    It is a favourite tactics of the Russian army to shell Ukrainian territory over the border using long range artillery, killing Ukrainians and knowing that Ukraine would not retaliate.

    • Ed, you need to see shrink mate. Every post here related to the Russian army has your comments saying that it’s ALL against Ukraine. Relax, take your pills, go watch ducks in the park…
