notes"Lynx is a multiple rocket launcher system developed and manufactured by Israel Military Industries (IMI) and used by Israel Defense Forces and other countries (Lynx is both the launcher module which can fit on various mounts, and the name of the Israeli launcher-vehicle system). It can be configured to carry a variety of rockets in two sealed pod containers: 40 (2 pods x 20 rockets each) 122mm Grad rockets; or 26 (2x13) 160mm LAR-160 or ACCULAR rockets; or eight (2x4) 306mm EXTRA rockets; or four (2x2) Predator Hawk tactical ballistic missiles; or two (2x1) Delilah missiles. The Lynx's sophisticated fire control system has been designed to automatically identify the sealed pod container rocket to set firing properties accordingly. The Lynx can be mounted on several different types of prime movers to include the AMX-13, helicopters, and the HMMWV. Note: The LAR (Light Artillery Rocket) family of systems includes launchers for any rocket regardless of length, diameter, weight, range or payload designed to meet load-carrying capacity. It is flexible, supporting 8, 10, or 13 rockets in 1 or 2 sealed launch pod containers."
