For a long time, China's weapons have been the most questioned point in the world, that is, they rarely experience actual combat tests. For many countries that don't look at the price to see the effect, China's weapons are cost-effective, but are they easy to use? Further investigation is needed to know. The recent outbreak of the civil war in Ethiopia just advertised Chinese weapons.
The Chinese weapon advertised is the famous ar-2 multiple rocket launcher. This type of rocket is the foreign trade version of China's phl-03 self-propelled rocket launcher. Although it is a foreign trade version, its performance and power are not reduced at all. Moreover, ar-2 rockets can also be customized according to customer requirements, so compared with other countries, ar-2 rockets are more user-friendly and more user-friendly.
In addition to being easy to use and user-friendly, the biggest highlight of this type of rocket launcher is its range. According to official data, the maximum range of ar-2 multiple rocket launcher can reach 130 km. This range has been confirmed recently. According to foreign media reports, the armed forces in Tigre region of Ethiopia launched a rocket attack on the capital of Eritrean a few days ago.
It is said that the airport was attacked 100 km away from the capital city of asmarati. In Ethiopia, only Chinese made ar-2 rockets can be fired so far. The armed forces in the atagre region have seized ar-2 rockets from the Ethiopian army. So it's more consistent with the previous conjecture.
African civilian armed forces can eat through the captured ar-2 rockets in a short time, except that they are diligent and like to study. The root cause is that the ar-2 rocket is very easy to use and master.
In fact, the ar-2 rocket launcher is basically fully automated, and only four people can complete the complex process of launching and loading. Many steps just need to press the button, and veterans can teach the operation experience orally. One day of training can fully master the use of ar-2 rocket launcher, this weapon is very suitable for soldiers with low education level in Africa.
In addition to being easy to use and easy to use, the ar-2 rocket launcher has a very fierce firepower. Its caliber reaches 300 mm! It takes only a few seconds for 12 launch tubes to fire at a time, and the fire coverage of 12 rockets can reach 65 hectares. As long as it is within this range, no living force can survive. When the ar-2 rocket launcher uses cluster warhead, it can attack armored cluster targets from 100 km away. Dozens of main battle tanks can be destroyed in an instant, and this power can be described as terror.
Unlike other guns, it takes only about ten minutes to reload. If the loading is smooth, an ar-2 multiple rocket launcher can fire 72 300 mm rockets in 30 minutes! In Africa, the saturation attack of an ar-2 multiple rocket launcher can destroy a small African city, and this is also the super killer that African people and armed forces dream of.
In addition to its fierce firepower, the price of ar-2 multi barrel rocket is also very friendly to the people. The price of single rocket is only $50000. The price of 12 rockets is no more than 600000 yuan. With the launch vehicle independently developed by China, the price of the whole rocket launcher system should be about $1 million. The ar-2 rocket is the best gift from heaven to African armies that lack heavy firepower. This is why many African countries buy this type of rocket.
