Description: Uragan, also known as the BM-27, is a 220mm multiple launch rocket system developed as a replacement for Grad 122mm rocket artillery system. Equipped with 16 (6+4+6) 220mm rocket tubes Uragan, Hurricane in English, is based on a ZIL-135 8x8 truck providing enhanced mobility. The vehicle is powered by a single diesel engine rated at 260-hp. Uragan can fire artillery spin-stabilized rockets carrying High Explosive (HE), chemical or incendiary payloads. These rockets are able to engage targets at ranges of between 35,000 to 40,0000 meters.

Overall, this artillery system was more sophisticated than its antecessors and delivered greater firepower at longer ranges. The Soviet Army fielded Uragan artillery system by mid-1970s. It was exported to Soviet Union customers all over the world. It was deployed in a military conflict for the first time in the early 1980s by Syria that was fighting Israel at that time.
