Enthused by the success of partnerships to develop the autonomous truck mounted gun (ATMG) and autonomous truck mounted mortar (ATMM) developed in partnership with Elbit Israel, Thailand’s Defence Technology Institute (DTI) has again partnered with the former to develop the D-11 multi-purpose rocket and missile launcher.
Royal Thai Navy’s Naval Research and Development Office (NRDO) will also be participating in the programme that aims to create a Thai specific version of Elbit Systems’ precise and universal launching system (PULS) land based multi-purpose launcher.
The sole prototype of the system was on display at the show. The Elbit systems rocket and missile launcher is mounted on Czech Tatra multi-purpose truck.
Elbit’s PULS multi-purpose launcher can fire three different types of rockets – the Predator Hawk, which has a range of up to 300 km, the EXTRA which has a range of up to 100 km and the ACCULAR which has a range of up to 40 km.
The launcher can accommodate 18 ACCULAR rockets or four EXTRA rockets or two Predator Hawk rockets.
