There were videos on social media showing the upgraded multi-lead rocket launchers using 80mm S-8 air-to-air missiles. The weapon was mounted on pick-up trucks. According to experts, these mobile 12-tube rocket launchers lack the performance of 122 mm BM-21 Grad systems. These improved systems can be successfully used to attack targets at close range.
#Ukraine: The light MRL used by UA mobile units is becoming more popular – here are two examples of aircraft firing 80mm S-8 rockets.
They apparently have 12+ missile tubes and, while not as effective as the 122mm “Grad” rockets, are still useful at short range. pic.twitter.com/Angt2FDv4L
