notes"The Tornado-G multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) is designed and manufactured by SPLAV Scientific Production Enterprise, a company based in Russia. It is an upgraded variant of the BM-21 Grad MLRS. The new rocket system is intended for use by the armed forces of Russia and foreign countries. Meant to replace the age-old BM-21 Grad launch system, the new MLRS will provide improved tactical capabilities over its predecessor. The Tornado-G rocket system is designed to destroy enemy fortifications and artillery systems with a high degree of precision. Equipped with automated targeting and navigation systems, the MLRS offers superior target engagement capabilities. The Tornado-G was demonstrated during the ARMY 2018 international defense exhibitions held in August 2018 in Kubinka, Russia. It also took part in the Victory Day Parade 2018 held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in May 2018. SPLAV rolled out an upgraded version of rockets with enhanced warhead capabilities to be used on Tornado-G MLRS in August 2018."
