South Korean Hanwha Aerospace company announced on Thursday that the HOMAR-K multiple launch rocket system has successfully completed qualification tests, including mobility and endurance testing
“The HOMAR-K multiple launch system, the Polish version of Chunmoo, successfully passed mobility tests in late July at a state-run training ground in Changwon, an industrial city in the south of the Republic of Korea,” the news release says.
As noted by the company, HOMAR-K will be integrated with the Polish platform and components, as the missile launchers are mounted on a Jelcz 8×8 chassis. WB Group’s TOPAZ battlefield management system will be integrated with the HOMAR-K launcher.
The K239 Chunmoo is a self-propelled multiple rocket launcher capable of firing multiple caliber projectiles. It carries two containers with missiles, each can contain e.g. six 239 mm caliber guided missiles with a range of about 80km or one ballistic missile with a range of about 290km.
