Available to PACT forces, the BM-27 Uragan is a self-propelled multiple rocket launcher system designed in the Soviet Union.

OverviewEdit

Rather overpriced, the BM-27 Uragan isn't worth the bucks. Although it's firepower is good, the ammo consumption, low number of shots, and poor accuracy ruin it.

HistoryEdit

The Soviet Union relied heavily on the inherent firepower of "rocket projectors" throughout World War 2 (through their heavy use of "Katyusha" systems) in staving off defeat at the hands of Hitler's Germany and inevitably carried this tactical doctrine into the Cold War years against the West.

Rocket projectors held the uncanny ability to provide area suppression while delivering powerful psychological effects on enemy troops unlucky enough to be found within its "reach". Such rocket systems could saturate a target area ahead of the main advancing force made up of combat tanks, armored vehicles and infantry elements.

The BM-27 Uragan began its service with the Soviet Army in the late 1970s, as its first modern spin and fin stabilized heavy multiple rocket launcher. This system is capable of launching 220 mm rockets from 16 launch tubes mounted on the rear of a ZIL-135 8x8 chassis. This vehicle is extremely similar to that used in the FROG-7 free flight rocket system.
