In place of the body in the Mitsubishi L200, they mounted the BM-21 Grad launcher on a turntable. Missile guides removed from damaged Russian MLRS.
Pickup Mitsubishi L200 became the basis for a light homemade MLRS. He is already taking an active part in the fighting. Photos and videos of the self-made multiple launch rocket system were shown on the Facebook page of the Kryvyi Rih Separate Terodefense Brigade.
The new Mitsubishi L200 of the latest generation was taken as the basis. The cargo body of the pickup truck was removed, and in its place a special platform with three rails for 122-mm rockets appeared. They were removed from a downed Russian BM-21 Grad.
The platform is made rotatable, and folding stops are also provided, fixing the car in place during the volley. The rear wall of the cab was reinforced with a metal fire-resistant shield.
Such a self-made MLRS is mobile and economical. It is used for infantry fire support. As you know, BM-21 “Grad” missiles have a firing range of 4 to 20.5 km, and for modern ammunition it reaches 40 km.
By the way, this is far from the first home-made MLRS on a pickup truck chassis in Ukraine. Previously, similar multiple launch rocket systems were created from S-8 unguided rocket launchers. Some of them were taken from downed Russian helicopters.
