Ukraine unveils new tactical missile system, Grom-2 (Thunder-2) tactical missile system developed by Yuzhnoye Design Office and A.M. Makarov Southern Machine-Building Plant. The new operational-tactical missile system developing for Saudi Arabia. Ukraine’s defence companies have received from Saudi Arabia around $40 million to develop the Grom-2 tactical ballistic missile system, Ukrainian media reported.
The Grom-2 has a range of 350km, but technically, a missile is able to fly up to 500km. The new system developed by Yuzhnoye Design Bureau in partnership with Pavlograd Chemical Plant and Kharkiv Morozov Machine-Building Design Bureau.
The Grom short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) would be a Ukrainian analog to the Russian 9K720 Iskander. The Soviet-era 9K79 Tochka-U SRBM system, is currently the mainstay of the Ukrainian army’s missile systems.The Grom-2 has a range of 350km (max 500km), developed by Yuzhnoye Design Bureau and the Pavlograd Chemical Plant are in charge of developing the weapon and testing.
As has been reported previously, Saudi Arabia had unsuccessfully sought to obtain both Russian and American systems (the Iskander and the ATACMS, respectively), but has had no luck doing so.
