Armament
The rockets launcher system is mounted at the rear of a 6x6 truck chassis with three tubes in two lines. The six--round launcher is mounted at the rear of the chassis with an elevation range. Manual controls are also provided. In firing position, four stabilizers are lowered to the ground hydraulically to provide a more suitable firing platform. One of these is mounted either side to the immediate rear of the cab with the other two stabilizers mounted at the very rear of the chassis.
Rockets
The 400 mm guided rocket of WS-3 MGLRS has a simple inertial guidance system, but can also use indigenous combined navigation system. The control system applies GNSS/SINS integrtaed navigation system and whole-course control technology to carry through altitude control, so the rocket can fly stably and hit target with high precision. The WS3 with INS guidance has a maximum range of 200 km, CEP (Circular Error Probable) 300m. When using INS plus GPS guidance, the CEP is improved to 50m. The firing range of the rocket is from 70 to 200 km. The rocket can be equipped with various range of warheads as lethal blasting, cluster, fuel air explosive and blasting-burning. The WS-3 rocket is 7.15 m long, a weight of 1,282 kg and a warhead of 200 kg. Rockets can be launched in single or salvo modes with a firing interval of around 6 sec..
Mobility
The WS-3 MGLRS is based on the Chinese TAS-5450A truck chassis. The TAS5450A 8x8 25-tons truck offers good cross country mobility. The truck is motorized with an air-cooled diesel engine. The WS-2 TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher) vehicle is usually supported by reloading vehicle, which is fitted with a crane and carries reload containers with rockets. The WS-3 truck can run at a maximum road speed of 80 km with a maximum cruising range of 800 km.
Combat use
Typical configuration for one MLRS WS-3 battery is as follows:
- 1 command vehicle
- 6 Transporter erector launcher vehicles.
- 6 loading and transportation vehicles
