China showed the tank version of the Russian Grad
The Chinese did not create anything at all in this century, but they have reached great heights in copying other people`s ideas and achievements. All economically beneficial and justified from the point of view of investment. Taken the development of someone when it brought to mind and on the basis of it creates the same, but with a certain Chinese subtext. Something similar happened after put a multiple rocket system on the tank chassis.
Military experts believe that from a military point of view, such a system does not justify itself. The system of volley fire is effective only in the case when the missile strike is applied unexpectedly from the area in which according to the intelligence or any missile systems
are not. If you use similar systems
of volley fire on the track for a quick and hidden attack, it is a utopian solution. Hidden on the tanks somewhere quickly pass will not work, and get out of the area of shooting just does not work. As a result, after the shooting, the probability that these tank missile systems
will be destroyed is very high. If this is true, the feasibility of building such equipment is minimal.
The Chinese apparently are going to fight in the tropics or in the jungles of Africa, where the dirt is knee-deep and the enemy has no global control systems
In theory, the Chinese took the Soviet system of volley fire Hail, modified it, put the missile system on the chassis of the tank and got their weapons have the designation PHZ-89. The result was a little maneuverable, weighing 30 tons of installation of volley fire. By the way, this mobile carriage has an engine that is in all respects a normal clone of the Soviet engine B-54. The range of such a platform is only 450 km, and the speed is 55 km per hour. On Board is for the simultaneous launch of a package of 40 missiles. A ready-made package with rockets is used, the time for recharging is reduced at times. Shells the Chinese also modified and now the 122mm rockets can fly at 30 km, the Crew of this marvel of engineering is composed of five people. In case of an air attack, the PHZ-89 has its own heavy machine gun.
The Chinese themselves believe that this Chinese missile system is inferior in its mobility to the ZTZ-99A and the BMP ZBD-04A and in the future it seems that it will not be advisable to develop something on a tank move in such a direction.
