notes"The M1991 is a 240mm Multiple Rocket Launcher System (MRLS) uses by the North Korean Armed Forces. The vehicle was first seen in 1991 and received the name of M-1991 which indicates the year that it was first observed by United States intelligence. The system fires the same 240 mm calibre unguided rockets as the M1985 and has similar HE, smoke, incendiary and chemical warhead capabilities. The M-1991 is only used by the North Korean army. In February 2012, North Korea announced an upgrade the previous model of its 240-millimeter rocket launchers, and named them 'Juche 100 Guns,' after the North's primary ideology of self-reliance. North Korea is expected to unveil the Juche 100 to the public during a massive military parade on April 15, 2012, during the 100th birthday of the North's founder Kim Il-sung. M1991 Multiple Rocket launcher System is assigned to MRLS battalions comprising three batteries, each of five 240 mm MRLS'."
