MINSK, May 13. /TASS/. Belarus’ new multiple rocket launch systems Polonez are planned to be delivered to the country’s troops in 2016, Belarusian Defense Minister Andrey Ravkov told journalists on Wednesday.
"These systems are planned to be put into service in the army in 2016," the minister said.
He could not say, however, whether the systems will be used in the Ashuluk range exercise in southern Russia due in September. "This issue is being considered," the minister said.
The Polonez long-range multiple rocket launch system was created by the national defense sector enterprises and matches the world’s best analogues. A combat vehicle of this system is capable of launching simultaneous pinpoint strikes on eight targets at a range of more than 200 km. The chassis of the combat and transporter-loader vehicles of the Polonez MRLS are manufactured by the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant. The Polonez MLRS was for the first time presented at a military parade in Minsk on May 9 on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the World War II Victory.
