Armament
The electrically powered launcher has four rows of 10 tubes of 122mm mounted above each other on a rotating cradle assembly at the rear of a 6x6 truck chassis. The launch tubes have an elevation range of 0° to 55° and azimuth range of -102° to +102°. A hydraulically operated collapsible awning is mounted over the rear deck for use as protection and camouflage. The truck is equipped with two hydraulically operated stabilisers at rear which are lowered in firing position. The electrical firing system fires the rockets either singly or in a salvo with 0.5 second between rounds. Firing is accomplished either inside the driver's cab or remotely outside the vehicle. The automatic reloading system consists of elevator, rack and feeder with three modes of control. 40 rockets can be loaded in less than 3 minutes. The launcher is controlled by the computer through man/machine interaction.
Rockets
The Type 90B MLRS fires 122mm fin-stabilized rockets and use a composite solid propellant. The rockets can reach a range from 20 to 40 km depending on the rocket type. These rockets can be equipped with the following warhead types: standard High Explosive (HE), High-efficiency HE containing steel balls for greater fragmentation effect, High-efficiency HE Incendiary (HEI), Cargo containing anti-personnel/anti-tank sub-munitions, Mine containing anti-tank mines. The rockets can also be launched by other 122 mm multiple rocket systems.
Vehicle
The Type 90B is a modern design, mounting the launcher on the North-Benz 2629 truck, a 6 x 6 configuration vehicle. The truck is fitted with a forward control type cab. The Type 90B features an automatic operating and laying system which is composed of a mini-computer, a launcher direction finder/display, longitudinal and transversal slope and gradient sensors, launcher assembly elevation and traverse position sensors, and a special vehicle-launcher power interface. Greater accuracy is ensured by the installation of a new computerized fire control system which includes a GPS (Global Positioning System) and a north-seeking gyro. A communications link and interface to the battalion command vehicle is provided. The truck can run at a maximum speed of 85 km/h with a maximum road range of 800 km.
Combat use
A typical Type 90B battalion would consist of one battalion command vehicle based on a North-Benz 1929 (4 x 4) chassis, three reconnaissance vehicles based on a WM551A 6x6 wheeled armoured personnel carrier, one meteorological radar, one mechanical maintenance vehicle, one electronic maintenance vehicle and three batteries, each of which has one battery command vehicle, six rocket launchers and six rocket resupply vehicles.
