G-2000 MLRS GRAD 122mm Artillery Rocket

Rocket G-2000 is currently the longest range rocket on the market within its caliber. Its rocket motor has a completely new state of the art design. Warhead with fuse, the rocket guide and contact cover are identical to the original rocket GRAD.

Rocket “G-2000” is fully compatible with the mobile multi tube rocket launchers such as BM-21 and RM-70, or similar existing launchers.

Propellant grain is a single cylindrically shaped piece, which is inhibited along the outer surface and front end. It contains two types of propellant, which differ in burning rate. This has resulted in a high level loading factor, almost neutral burning and minimization of the silver being used.

Rocket propellant used for grain production is a modern thermoplastic composite propellant with a high percentage of aluminium , with burning temperatures exceeding 3000K and with a high value of specific impulse.
The steel nozzle with abounded ablative materials has one graphite throat.
