For example, such a story happened with the TAV-71M armored personnel carriers with French engines, which are versions of the Soviet BTR-60PB. All your deliveries are classified.

Recently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine began to use the APR-40 multiple launch rocket systems, created by Aerostar SA in the second half of the 70s. The appearance of this MLRS suggests that the BM-21 Grad became a source of inspiration for the designers of the city of Bacau.

The only difference is that instead of the Miass “Ural” all-terrain vehicle, a DAC 665T three-axle vehicle was used. These samples were equipped with D-2156 HMN8 six-cylinder diesel engines with a capacity of 215 horsepower. They are capable of transporting 10,000 kilograms of cargo on the road and 5,000 kilograms off it.

In addition to direct launchers, transport and cargo vehicles designed for forty rockets with a maximum firing range of more than 20,000 meters were created on the same chassis.

APR-40s were delivered to various countries, for example, in Bosnia and Herzegovina there are thirty-six of them, and in Moldova – three dozen. They were actively used during the Iran-Iraq war.

Just the other day, Romanian 152-mm howitzer A411 guns, also known under the designation M1981, were seen near the militants. They are versions of the Soviet D-20 cannon developed back in the 1940s. In addition to the artillery systems themselves, Bucharest also transferred a batch of ammunition to them.

After the decommissioning of the MiG-21 Lancer fighters, it is possible that they will eventually end up at this critical point.
