The BM-21 Grad (Hail) is a direct descendant for the famous Katyusha rocket launcher of the Second World War. The box launcher, housing four rows of ten tubes, is mounted on a Ural 6x6 truck. The BM-21 can fire fin-stabilised 122mm rockets, which can be fitted with fragmentation, chemical, or incendiary warheads, up to 16km (10 miles). A single volley from a BM-21 battalion of 18 launchers fires 720 rounds in 20 seconds, the equivalent of five division’s worth of guns firing together. Clearly, the 'Hail' is well named.
The Soviet Union's most powerful forces are stationed in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, poised on the border with West Germany ready to strike at a moment's notice. They are equipped with the very best Soviet industry has to offer, from sophisticated missile firing T-64 tanks and powerful T-72 tanks to versatile BMP infantry fighting vehicles, as well as plentiful BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers. Supported by elite Afgansty Air Assault troops, powerful self-propelled artillery, and effective and numerous anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, there will be little that the corrupt capitalist armies of NATO can do to stop them.
