notes"The BM-14 (BM for Boyevaya Mashina, 'combat vehicle'), is a Soviet-made 140mm multiple launch rocket system (MLRS), normally mounted on a truck. The BM-14 can fire 140 mm M-14 rockets with a high-explosive fragmentation warhead, a smoke warhead, or a chemical warhead. It is similar to the BM-13 "Katyusha" and was partly replaced in service by the 122 mm BM-21 Grad. Launchers were built in 16 and 17-round variants. The rockets have a maximum range of 9.8 kilometers (6.1 mi). The weapon is not accurate as there is no guidance system, but it is extremely effective in saturation fire."

notes"improved version, mounted on a ZIL-157 chassis. In 1958 production of the ZIL-151 truck ceased in favor to the newer ZIL-157. So launcher module was simply relocated onto a new chassis."
name"BM-14MM"
notes"improved version, mounted on a ZIL-131 chassis. It appeared in the mid 1960s. This vehicle has better cross-country mobility due to a 150 hp engine and central tyre inflation system. Artillery module is exactly the same as used on the BM-14. This version was exported to Burkina Faso."
name"BM-14-17 (8U35)"
notes"17-round (8+9 launch tubes) launcher, mounted on the GAZ-63A. Developed in 1959. This launcher was also used on naval vessels, for example Project 1204 patrol boats."
