Description: The ASTROS II (Artillery SaTuration ROcket System) is a Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) designed to engage ground targets at ranges between 30 to 300 kilometers. Its modular design allows to fire a variety of rockets and tactical missiles with calibers ranging from 127mm to 300mm. The 70mm Skyfire-70 rocket is available for training purposes. The ASTROS artillery system has been developed on the basis of all-terrain, high-mobility wheeled chassis for enhanced mobility. The basic rocket artillery system introduced in the early 1980s was designed to fire SS-30, SS-40, SS-60 and SS-80 rockets. The extended range SS-150 can engage targets at 150 kilometers while the FOG-MPM offers high accuracy against armored vehicles, helicopters and fortifications. The Astros TM/AV-MT tactical missile can engage targets at ranges of 300 kilometers.

The Brazilian Army ASTROS 2020 rocket artillery system is the sixth generation ASTROS, ASTROS Mk 6, multiple launch rocket system (MLRS). The ASTROS 2020 weapon system will feature the new AV-TM 300 tactical cruise missile to engage ground targets with high accuracy from distances of up to 300 kilometers. The new weapon system will be provided with ASTROS Mk 6 launching vehicles as well as upgraded ASTROS Mk 3 launchers to the Mk 6 standard. The ASTROS Mk 6 multi-caliber, precision artillery system is expected to enter service with the Brazilian Army by 2020.
