Splav State Unitary Enterprise, the Russian company that makes all Russian multiple rocket launchers, has announced a series of improvements to its 122mm BM21 Grad system.
@ The new Kapustnik-GM fire control system, which reduces the time needed for an unprepared battery to open fire from the current 35 minutes to only six minutes.
@ New 122mm rockets have greater range thanks to a new propellant.
@ New warheads are more effective against armored vehicles. These improvements can be retrofitted to existing BM21s.--Stephen V Cole
