Belarus to Use Own «Polonez» Multiple Launch Rocket System

November 3, the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has visited Precision Electromechanical Plantlocated in the Dzerzhinsk region, where the cutting edge domestic multiple launch rocket system  «Polonez» was demonstrated. The head of state was also updated on the efforts to localize the production of combat missiles.

The «Polonez» multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) was first demonstrated on May 9, during the parade in Minsk. The Polonez missiles have a range of 200 km. Today only several states have missile systems with such characteristics.

According to a Chinese report, the two sides agreed in 2013 to create the new MLR system, which could enter Belarusian army service in 2016. The same report noted a 2012 agreement between China and Belarus to develop a new surface-to-air missile system.
