BM-21 GRAD MRLS Soviet Union USSR 1970

Scale 1:72 / Diecast model 


The BM-21 "Grad" is a Soviet truck-mounted 122 mm multiple rocket launcher. The weapons system and the M-21OF rocket were first developed in the early 1960s, and saw their first combat use in March 1969 during the Sino-Soviet border conflict. BM stands for "Boyevaya Mashina" (Combat Vehicle), and the nickname grad means "Hail". The complete system is more commonly known as a Grad multiple rocket launcher system. Various 122mm-type rockets were deployed by Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war, modified to deliver nerve agents to targets. This included the 40-inch long, domestically produced Grad MLRS-compatible "Borak" warhead designed to disperse sarin gas.
