Vilkha MLRS

So I’ve been reading about this thing, supposedly having entered production this (late 2023 maybe?) year. Claimed to be a much-longer ranged HIMARS with guided 300mm rockets. Has anyone heard anything about this thing? Any notable impact in the war?

      What does tanks rolling into Kiev have anything to do with it? We’re talking about a 300mm guided MLRS with a range of 170km IIRC,

      the project was abandonware. it was restarted because of the war, like bohdana.

      >Claimed to be a much-longer ranged HIMARS with guided 300mm rockets.
      from what i've heard, production was restarted when it became clear that US aid wasn't going to include the longest-range munitions available. the US also objects to the use of turkish compatibles in HIMARS, so much so that HIMARS units shipped to ukraine came with firmware-level DRM.

      >Has anyone heard anything about this thing? Any notable impact in the war?
      russians fantasize about destroying them once in a while. otherwise no news that i know of.

              I'd take a million shells with 50% dud rate any day over no shells at all tbh
              AND it's easier to refurbish existing shells than to make new ones from scratch. Ukraine, for example, makes one shell from 3 machined parts because there's no machinery to make it in one piece. If NK delivered their shells to Ukraine, they would relieve a lot of pressure, that machining part is a huge bottleneck(picrel)

                a dud is worse than no round.
                a dud puts strain on your logistics to ferry it to where a working shell would be needed.
                a dud makes you think you have the capacity to shell an area ahead of a timed offensive when you don't.

                No it's not if you see it as a semi-finished product. Just the empty metal shell would be better, but if there's a frickton of "finished" shells-might as well send those

                Might as well use concrete training shells.

            Okay so lets sort this out.

            You realize that the Norks arent sending new shells right? They are sending shells from their stockpile in exchange for a pretty penny. In all likelyhood these shells are from the 50's and 60's hence the dud rate
            >how can you know
            Because we S.K sent 155's to the US for shipment to Ukraine, they sent reserve shells that had been sitting in storage since the 1970's.

            So this isnt

              and it also means that N.K's ability to ship huge amount of shells is finite, eventually they will deplete their reserves and be confined by their production rate.

              Did you not see the "semi-finished product" part?

              and it also means that N.K's ability to ship huge amount of shells is finite, eventually they will deplete their reserves and be confined by their production rate.

              But NK has a good enough tool industry to equip themselves with ~1980s tier lathes, CNCs, etc.
              They could provide equipment
              Anyways, this is pointless because NK is supporting russia and provides missiles too. The same missiles Yuzhmash helped to develop back in early 2000s. Ungrateful bastards

      No, it wasn't. Zelensky cared much more about new roads tho
      >otherwise no news that i know of
      All 100 of pre-war rockets were used for defense of Kyiv.

        It's used a lot. There are several videos and photos, but here's the most interesting one. It was used to strike Bilhorod

        The issue isn't Zelensky and roads (although that didn't help), it's the whole dysfunctional government system and industry in Ukraine.

    Bruh, this is basically an upgraded Smerch, with more sane and modern controls, targeting system and missiles (because the regular Smerch is shit). It's almost vaporware and doesn't exist in any large numbers because of moronic management, corruption and traitors.

      That's not really true. Same form-factor for backwards compatibility, completely different missile+modified lainch vehicle

    Already better than HIMARS if we’re going by that one Smerch comparison image.
