    fighting machine rm-70 In the late 60's defense industry Czechoslovakia had completed work on the development of the combat vehicle RM-70 on the basis of the Soviet military machine BM-21. Fighting machine RM-70 was produced in Czechoslovakia in 1970 and currently consists in the armies of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Libya and Zimbabwe. MLRS RM-70 were armed with rocket artillery battalions and the National People's Army of the GDR. After the unification of Germany, the government of Germany has transferred these systems in Turkey and Greece.

    In connection with the start of production in Czechoslovakia in 1983 advanced a four-terrain truck "Tatra-815" based on it has developed a new combat vehicle RM-70/85. Externally, it is distinguished by the soft-skinned cockpit.

    lately on the chassis "Tatra-815", a new version of the combat vehicle, designated KRIZAN, and equipped with a 40-barreled package guides from BM-21 and complex tools for remote mining areas.

    Composition

    fighting machine rm-70 System RM-70 includes:

    propelled launcher,

    unguided rockets,

    fire control system,

    Transport-loading machine.

    Structurally

    MLRS RM-70 is a combination of the artillery BM-21 chassis with the Czechoslovak-roader "Tatra-813".

    launcher is based on the classical scheme of arrangement with an artillery unit in the feed wheel chassis. In front of the chassis are reinforced cabin crew and power plant with transmission units. Due to the relatively long length of the chassis in the middle part of the original managed to place a hydraulic device for reloading launcher.

    Artillery unit comprises of a tubular guide (40 barrels), the swing frame, guidance and appropriate mechanisms of electrical equipment. By design, it is completely identical to the artillery unit BM-21 Shooting is unguided rockets with high-explosive fragmentation warhead M-21OF (with fuze length - 2.87 m, weight - 66 kg, firing range - 20.5 km). Also possible to use all the new weapons, recently developed in Russia for MLRS BM-21.

    In most

    issued MLRS RM-70 as the wheel chassis Used truck chassis "Tatra-813." This chassis has a V-shaped twelve-diesel engine "Tatra" T-930-3 with a capacity of 270 liters. with.

    Chassis is based on the wheel formula 8x8, the wheels of the two front axles. Through the use of low pressure tires with a tread pattern developed and the availability of the system of centralized control of air in tires patency launcher cross country exceptionally high. It overcomes the steep climbs to 30 °, wall height 0.6m and 1.5m wide moats. Without preparation boosts fords depth to 1.4 m when driving on the highway launcher has a maximum speed of 80 km / hour.

    launcher equipped with radio, fire extinguishing agents and NBC. In front of the chassis mounted dozer, through which can be fitted or removed emplacement obstacles from the road. There is also a winch for self launcher.

    fighting machine rm-70

    essential difference from RM-70 prototype is its increased fire power: two minutes after the first volley of production RM-70 can give a second volley and leave the fighting position even before it is applied to retaliate enemy. This capability is provided by a hydraulic device for mechanized reloading launcher. It is a rack on which ammunition, consisting of 40 missiles. With the hydraulic actuator may move projectiles horizontal aft wheeled undercarriage (in the same direction and head portions directed missiles). Package for reloading guide artillery unit rotates 180 ° and is set to zero elevation angle. All 40 rounds, located on a shelf, is simultaneously being shifted guides, then launcher can continue shooting. Also provides for reloading launcher manually using transport-loading vehicle.

    Shooting is conducted using the same pridelnyh devices that are installed on the BM-21.

    As an auxiliary armament armored cab roof can be mounted 7.62-mm machine gun, firing from which to conduct both ground and air targets.
