Poles envied new Ukrainian missiles


As you know, about a third of the Soviet military-industrial complex was inherited by Ukraine. Much has been irretrievably lost, but some still survived.


The specialized Polish publication Defense24 told its readers about the latest achievements of the Ukrainian defense industry, among which were:

- ballistic and cruise missiles with a flight range of 280-450 km (OTRK "Thunder", RCC "Neptune");
- a multiple launch rocket system of 300 mm caliber and a range of 70-120 km (MLRS "Alder");
- 122 mm multiple launch rocket system with a range of up to 40 km (MLRS "Verba").

Moreover, the publication emphasizes that all this was created by the Ukrainians themselves, on the basis of their own component base. Most interesting are the comments of simple Poles who read this article.


You laugh, but unnoticed by all, Ukraine is turning into a regional power. Maybe not everything is debugged, but already at a decent level and often better than the Polish ancient weapons systems

- wrote one of the users.

It seems that they (Ukrainians) did not take so much from the former USSR, on the contrary, they have a lot of their own developments

- echoed another.

As for rocket artillery, we are 100 years behind Ukraine

- unexpectedly admitted one of the readers.

These missiles are not news. As if everyone had forgotten, they have long been building their own missile systems

- the commentator reminded.

American weapons dominate the Polish army. We finance the development of their defense industry and of technologies in exchange for promises to build a large Fort Trump base that will never be. This is the price of "sovereignty"

- the user of the Polish site admitted somehow completely unpatriotic.

What about us? What have we come to for 30 years of freedom? Our "Langoustines" (WR-40 Langusta - Polish MLRS) will finally shoot at 40 km, and then thanks to the French. Why are we not cooperating with Ukraine to develop our own missile systems, no worse than in the USA?

- the reader is indignant.

We note from ourselves that the Polish audience is deeply mistaken, calling the missile systems presented above natively Ukrainian. The Grom OTRK is being created on the basis of the Tochka-U Soviet missile system, the Neptune anti-ship missile was developed on the basis of the Soviet X-35, the Soviet Smerch served as the basis for the Alder multiple launch rocket system, and the Verba MLRS - This is nothing more than a modernized Soviet “Grad”.

    - But what's the difference in what once formed the basis ...
    - Tomorrow, Mr. Lukashenko will deliver to Ukraine his wonderful Polonaise MLRS and ... and who will be interested ... - what formed the basis of this “Belarusian product” ...

      He will not deliver anything to Lukashenko, all money will be stolen immediately and forever ... And if a miracle happens, the missiles will go to Africa, they will be tritely resold. I read somewhere, the Americans delivered "javelins" to Ukraine, but they store them in Poland. Guess why?

        - But it’s Lukashenko who will deliver Polonaises, and Ukraine will pay money for them ...
        - And this money is unlikely to be stolen from the "father" ... - Well, but Ukraine, of course ... - can drive the Polonaise to anyone ... - even to Armenia and Azerbaijan at the same time ...

    OTRK "Thunder"? Did not hear. There were not even tests. Iskander-M is rumored to be able to bullet for 700-1500 km.
    RCC "Neptune"? Well, maybe, step by step, they will bring to mind the analogue of the X-35U.
    MLRS "Alder" and MLRS "Verba" analogues of the armament of the Russian army MLRS Tornado-S (120 km) and Tornado-G (40 km).

    Soviet junk of the 70s half a century ago.
    Not surprisingly, the Poles (people tight) consider this the pinnacle of military thought.

      But have you already found an alternative to jet thrust or a powder shot? There are rules - Works - do not touch, The best is the enemy of the good.

    And who's stopping you from saying that your rockets are cooler than American?
    Ukrainians painted in yellow-black and everything, the Soviet rocket became Ukrainian.
