    The "G" is an improved version of the Grad. The "S" is an improved version of the Smerch while the "U" is the multi caliber (pallet) version. For usage from my understanding, the "G" provides direct unit support, the "U" will provide Combined Arms Army support and the "S" will provide Military District support.

    So the light single pallet model is for mountain forces or air mobile forces or light recon forces or export?

    Not sure... certainly would have it's use for Air mobile Rapid Deployment.

    Slevin, this post is not relevant to this thread, and because you repeated this post on the correct relevant threads I will delete this post rather than move it to where it is more suitable...

    Would remind you that it is a forum rule that you introduce yourself here:

    "Tornado-S" will receive shells of greater range and accuracy with new combat units

    Work on further improvement is also going on the Tornado-G multiple launch rocket system.

    "Currently, work is underway to further improve the ammunition of the MLRS Tornado-S. It is planned not only to increase the range and accuracy of shooting, but also to expand the range of tasks that solve this system’s ammunition by creating projectiles with new types of combat units" said Lepin.

    According to him, similar work on further improvement is being carried out on the Tornado-G 122-mm rocket launcher.

    Lepin noted that due to their high characteristics, the MLRS of the new generation Tornado-G and Tornado-S have good export prospects. “We plan to work in this direction,” the agency’s interlocutor said in conclusion.
