Ukroboronprom, the state-run enterprise, developed a new multiple missile launch system dubbed Verba (Willow), the company’s press service reported.
The designers say the weapon is actually a new generation of Grad, Soviet-made artillery of the same kind.
The system is truck-mounted on KrAZ vehicle and fitted with 5 places for crew. "Fire control, aiming system and even reloading are performed automatically and directly from the cabin, without any interference by servicemen”, the press service of Ukroboronprom said.
Verba weighs almost 20 tons. It can speed up to 85 km per hour.
"It is time to forsake the old-fashioned Soviet weaponry and hardware. Verba is the kind of armament that should be commercially supplied to the army”, said Roman Romanov, Director General at Ukroboronprom.
