Turks have made for sheikhs "the most powerful" weapon, but don't use it


Turks have made for sheikhs "the most powerful" weapon, but don't use it
The jet system of volley Multiple Cradle Launcher (MCL) fire developed by the Turkish company Roketsan was included in the Guinness Book of Records. "the bulletin of the Caucasus" has reported about it. The Turkish RSZO possesses a record of rate of fire which any similar system isn't able even to approach. MCL in two minutes are let out by 240 rockets with range to 40 km. The volley of this huge RSZO covers the area to 4 sq.km. It is necessary to tell that history with this monster isn't so simple. Development, really, Turkish. However production MCL is completely developed in the Emirates, at the plants of the Jobaria Defense Systems (JDS) company. At the same time the system arrives only on arms of army of the UAE. Also it is qualified practically in all sources as weapon, "created in the Emirates with the assistance of foreign firm". I have appeared MCL already for a long time — the system has been for the first time shown in Abu Dhabi at the IDEX-2013 exhibition. Just just now business has reached the statement of a record of rate of fire. So on what the power of this weapon is based? And at the expense of what it strikes terror into enemies? Or doesn't install? — it is too not an idle question. MCL is not mobile system, and towed. On the five-axis semi-trailer designers have placed four rotary launchers. In each PU three transport and starting containers on 20 rockets of caliber of 122 mm everyone are placed. Thus, in each PU 60 rockets are placed. In four — 240. Each PU works irrespective of others. That is each of them can aim the operator at the objects which are subject to firing. Independently also rockets are shot. In one second two missiles are launched. That is in 2 minutes all 240 rockets MCL depart possesses high extent of automation — three persons, including the driver of the tractor enter calculation. The effective control system of fire turns on the integrated inertial navigation satellite system. The operator has an opportunity to operate conducting firing for each PU, setting at the same time various algorithms. On the platform the crane manipulator for a recharge of launchers is also located. Management of firing comes from an armored cabin of the tractor. All this large object weighs 105 tons. Therefore 700-strong Oshkosh M1070 tractors which are used to transportation on wheel platforms of 70-ton American Abrams tanks are used. However it is possible to use also tractors of other producers. On the same platform and with use of the same tractor the transport loading car is created. So they also go in pair of the impressive sizes. Hitch length — 29 meters. The same length the transport loading car with the tractor. The minimum range of fire — 16 km, maximum — 40 km. In two minutes of MCL it is capable to send to the opponent nearly 4 tons of military units of rockets. All this pluses. And, very impressive. However is both minuses, and their absolute value we will call later. Time of preparation for firing takes several minutes. It is necessary to put forward 4 couples of support, to be fixed on the soil and to hang out on them
