During World War II Gorki produced several rocket-launchers mounted ontrucks. First the 12-rail, 300-millimeter launcher; then, from 1944 onwards,the M-8, M-13, and M-31 rocket-launchers mounted on GAZ-63 trucks. (The GAZ-63is an obvious direct copy of the U.S. Army’s 21/2-ton truck.)
After World War II Gorki production ofrocket-launchers continued with the BM-31, which had twelve 300-millimetertubes mounted on a GAZ-63 truck chassis. In the late 1950s another model wasproduced with twelve 140-millimeter tubes on a GAZ-63 truck chassis. In the1960s yet another model with eight 140-millimeter tube was produced on a GAZ-63chassis.
Truck was apart of Korea, Vietnam, Cubaand other USSRwar. This is very good technically developmental comparsion in very differentsocial status countries and will be for next generations.
