Han and defense, said the People’s Liberation Army the WS3 rockets comparable to tactical missile
domestic WS-2 long-range guided rocket launcher systems.
According to Canada, “Han and defense review” reports, Chengdu aviation industry on the basis of the WS-3 rocket launched GPS induced by the WS-3A multi-barrel rocket launchers, the rocket range of 280 km, which So far China’s longest-range rockets.
It is reported that the WS-3 is actually a modified WS-2, from the appearance point of view, WS-3 launcher and WS-2 is very similar, however, it was introduced, the WS-3 equipped with more advanced performance of the new rockets.
range, with the WS-2 WS-3 is basically the same, are 70-200 km, but the former shooting accuracy has been improved significantly. WS-3 with a circular error probability of the inertial guidance of rockets on the launch of 300 meters (maximum range), and launch rockets using GPS/inertial guidance of a complex guidance system, the deviation in the range of 200 km will only approximately 50 meters, is comparable to the general tactical ballistic missiles.
WS-3 with rockets length of 7.15 m, diameter 400 mm, the rear is equipped with four stabilizing fins. The rockets can be needed facelift variety of quality ammunition, including less than 200 kg of high explosive ammunition and cluster bombs. The system each transmitter is equipped with three transport – launch boxes, each box stored in the two rockets. The traction device of the system for the introduction of the 8 × 8 chassis TA5450 motor vehicles, the cockpit has been completely reinforced protection, but also equipped with air-conditioning equipment.
article said, the new WS-3A of the M20 rockets with a range of surface-to-the formation of missile and artillery combined with the attack system. Induced by the use of GPS, the accuracy of the WS-3A may be less than 50-100 m.
In addition, the company also launched the induction of long-range rocket in a variety of series: in the range of 45 kilometers WS-15 on the basis of the development of the installation of a simple guidance system, WS-22, the latter through modified to enhance the accuracy of the horizontal posture, so the gas vents installed in the missile body segment, the fight against accuracy. Accuracy in the range of 100 kilometers WS-1, induced by the installation of GPS middle of the device, modified into the WS-35, the same range, improved firing accuracy is usually the case, a civilian version of GPS-induced rockets roughly 50 meters immediately to complete the “Compass” to induce satellite network, when the rocket accuracy will improve.the
article said that between the WS-35 and a range of 200 kilometers of the WS-3, China has developed a range of 150 km of the GPS-32 induced the WS. Further down the range of 70 km of the GPS-induced WS-33. Through this combination of WS-35, 33,32,3,3 A, completely covers the maximum range of 70,100,150,200,280 kilometers. WS Series rockets are Sichuan, only for export. Pakistan, Tanzania, Sudan, A100, WS-2 user, Turkey won the WS-l production technology, Thailand obtained a range of 180 kilometers WS-1B production technology.
