Technodinamika eyes 80mm MLRS
Rostec subsidiary Technodinamika expects to start serial production of a new 80mm multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) in 2024, a senior company official has told Russian state-run media.
‘We are proactively developing a demonstration model of a light 80mm calibre MLRS at our own expense,’ said Technodinamika CEO Igor Nasenkov.
He added: ‘If the results are positive, development can be completed in 2023 and after state tests, batch production can be mastered by the end of 2024.’
The MLRS (as yet unnamed) would use unguided 80mm missiles installed on standard Russian Ground Forces vehicles.
A demonstration model of the new system will be displayed in August at the Army 2021 exhibition near Moscow. Data from Shephard Defence Insight shows that the Russian MLRS arsenal is based on 122mm, 220mm and 300mm calibre systems — so an 80mm MLRS would offer a new element.
