In 2003, Indonesia has acquired 9 second-hand RM-70 122mm MLRS from Czech Republic. The original RM 70 was installed on Tatra T-813 chassis. The new Vampir, however, utilizes a completely new platform Tatra T-815-7.

The RM-70 Vampir rocket launcher is capable of deploying concentrated bursts of fire into larger areas occupied by the enemy and destroy personnel as well as combat machinery. It allows single or multiple rocket fire modes.

The rocket launching is carried out by an operator in the vehicle´s cabin or from a nearby shelter with a remote control device. The RM-70 Vampir is equipped with a bundle of 40,122 mm pods which are loaded while the vehicle is in cruise configuration. Another 40 rockets are placed in the loading mechanism of the rocket launcher, so the immediate firing capacity is 80 rockets.

Construction of the first prototype began in February 2015 and successful gunnery trials were held in October 2015. To this day, two complete batteries of Vampirs have been produced; including two battery commander vehicles and one battalion commander vehicle.

The vehicles are interconnected with a state-of-the-art fire control system and each battery comes equipped with a Forward Observer’s set. The RM-70 Vampir rockets can be fired at a maximum range of 20 km.
