Occupiers claim that such system will be bicaliber and will be in production in the first half of 2024

russian propagandists claim that the Minister of Defense of the russian federation and war criminal Sergei Shoigu visited military enterprises located in Tula Oblast. During one of his visits, Shoigu was shown the Vozrozhdenie multiple launch rocket system, the development of which first became known only in late December of 2023.

Thus, this was the first publicly available footage that gives an idea of the design and appearance of the newest russian Vozrozhdenie MLRS.

The currently available footage allows to estimate that russian occupiers are trying to implement a modular charging principle on their Vozrozhdenie MLRS, which is also used, for example, on the South Korean K239 Chunmoo rocket artillery system. The platform for this system is likely to be an 8x8 chassis.

When the information about the Vozrozhdenie system first publicly appeared, russians announced their intention to organize the production of this system in the first half of 2024. They also claimed that this MLRS would be created on basis of the Zemledelie remote mining system, which had already been used by russian occupiers in the war against Ukraine. It also has a modular charging principle. At present, invaders assume that their newest MLRS Vozrozhdenie will be able to fire 220-mm thermobaric rockets from the Uragan system as well as rockets from TOS-1A Solntsepyok and TOS-2 Tosochka heavy flamethrower systems.

It is known that the range of 220-mm thermobaric rockets for the BM-27 Uragan self-propelled multiple rocket launcher is up to 35 kilometers, while the range of rockets for the TOS-1 Solntsepek is 6 kilometers, and the range of TOS-2 Tosochka is up to 15 kilometers.

At the same time, it should be emphasized that russians` intention to launch production of the Vozrozhdenie system in the first half of 2024 does not mean that this newest occupiers` MLRS will be on the frontline by that time. Since it is a "standard" practice for russians that the actual time of start of production of a particular advanced weapon is constantly being shifted.

Earlier Defense Express reported that Moscow had tested S-500 Prometheus SAM system, allegedly capable of shooting down hypersonic missiles.
