OREANDA-NEWS  Rostec State Corporation presented the control system unit of the multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) Tornado-C at the International Defense Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) 2023 in Abu Dhabi (UAE). This is reported on the website of the state corporation.

It is noted that the control system unit for the Russian MLRS allows you to program an individual flight task for each rocket. This gives Tornado-S the ability to hit multiple targets with one volley. The block created on the basis of a free-form inertial navigation system allows you to set not only the range, but also the flight path of each projectile.

"The firing range of guided missiles is more than 100 kilometers, the firing accuracy of Tornado-S projectiles is 15-20 times higher than that of its predecessor MLRS Smerch projectiles," the report says. Also at the exhibition were presented unguided projectiles for the Tornado-G MLRS of 122 mm caliber, allowing to hit targets beyond the folds of the terrain, and a 53-UOR-281U shot with a 57 mm fragmentation tracer projectile.

In December 2022, military expert Dmitry Boltenkov reported that the Tornado-S MLRS is superior to the American High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS). The Russian system has a higher firing range and a more powerful warhead.
