15mm Modern Team Yankee BM-21 Grad 122mm Multiple Rocket Launch System.....

....from Battlefront!

The BM-21 is a Soviet truck mounted 122mm multiple rocket launcher, the "Grad" stands for hail! A minimum range of 1.6km and a maximum of up to 40km and is the most widely used multiple rocket launch system in the world!

3 resin BM-21 from Battlefront, not too difficult to put together, 2 for the Russians/East Europeans and 1 for my North Koreans! Yet again probably scenery or an objective?





15mm Oddzial Osmy and Khurasan miniatures for a touch of scale..........






A 31 second video showing one of these bad boys in action...............

  6. Great job on these besties, I really heated those things in real life as an ex artilleryman that's what they used for counter battery fire!

  14. Beautiful job! Man I wonder if the camera man got his eyebrows burned off standing that close to that grad as it was firing!

  15. Very nice work Fran. Not quiet the same thing, but I was situated next to a battery of MLRS's in the Gulf War when they fired off all their rockets. Woah man that was a site!!

  16. I recently met a war veteran who fought in Africa in the 60s. He had some awful memories of these "organs". Great work Fran, they do look impressive and realistic!! :D Cheers!

  18. I don't know much about the military but I do recognise those rocket launchers. Which I guess says a lot about their presence. I'm not sure I'd trust the Russians or North Koreans with them though.

  19. Uh, if it's the most widely used multiple rocket launch system in the world, then how come I don't have one, huh? What I'm saying is... I want one. Nicely done. Those look badass.
