Ukraine’s state-run defense enterprise Pavlohrad Chemical Plant and Yuzhne design bureau developed the missile launcher ‘Grom’ (Ukrainian for ‘thunder’). The new military vehicle will be produced both for an unspecified foreign customer and perhaps the Ukrainian army. Leonid Shyman, the CEO and Chief Designer of Pavlohrad Chemical Plant, said this as quoted by Radio Liberty.
According to him, the Grom project was initiated so as to substitute Sapsan missile launcher; the government had shut down this project in 2013.
The new vehicle's combat characteristics are classified for now.
