Interesting Analysis of the Rockets Used in Syria [View all]

http://rogueadventurer.com/author/rogueadventurer/

About N.R. Jenzen-Jones
Security and defence industry consultant, writer and analyst based in Perth, Western Australia. Some of the topics that interest me include small arms and light weapons (SALW), counter-narcotics, counter-piracy, and Special Operations Forces (SOF).


The site has a number of photos and lots of information on the rockets used in Syria. It's not complete, but it represents a specialist's viewpoint on this issue.

Bottom line, according to this writer, is that the rockets are not homemade, but are limited production varieties of rockets used in that region by Iran and Syria. He thinks they were tube-launched, Katyusha-style, and that the payload was the same diameter as the circular airfoil at the base, which seems likely, given the photo below.

It's an interesting read, and is a different perspective. For those who are interested, there are links to additional information and the site has been updated several times. What the author has written makes good sense.
