The Armed Forces of Ukraine are armed with various variations of the Soviet BM-21 Grad MLRS - including those received from the Czech Republic

Multiple launch rocket systems in Ukraine won't really surprise anyone, but at the same time, it's worth paying special attention to this case - the first photo of the MLRS by Excalibur Army from the Czech Republic has appeared on the Internet.

This is a BM-21MT 4x4 122-mm multiple rocket launcher, which is actually an upgraded version of the Sovie-made BM-21 Grad MLRS based on the Tatra T815-7T3R2T 4x4 chassis by the Czech company.

The Czech MLRS is equipped with a Tatra V8 engine. The maximum speed is 90 km/h, off-road speed is 30 km/h. Range - 1200 km.
