The combat vehicle is capable to control fire without the preliminary preparation of a position and without the help of crew minimizing the salvo time.

The machine has got an armored cab capable to protect the crew of five men from ballots and fragments.
Technical characteristics of the multiple rocket launcher are the following:

Number of gun layers-40-80 units; rocket shell caliber-122 mm; gun-layer rising corner-minimal -0 degree, maximum -60 degree; horizontal targeting corner-80 degree to the right from the chassis, 120 degree to the left from the chassis; full salvo time -20 second; firing distance given a missile type-minimal-1000 m, maximum-40 000m; maximum road speed-80 km/h; operational range-500 km; crew-5 men.

"Today, we have unveiled the first Georgian artillery system, the characteristics of which you have already become familiar with. I would like to say that it is a very important fact for our armed forces given that we, historically, suffered shortage of artillery vehicles, though always had professional artillerists. From now on we can say that the sophisticated artillery system presented today will meet our armed forces` requirements to a maximum extent, after which we will think about further development and advancement in this direction", said Defence Minister Bacho Akhalaia.

When manufacturing a heavy multiple rocket launcher, its producers used the experience accumulated in the international military industry. The launch vehicle has been made on the base of Military Scientific-Technical Center “Delta” in subordination to the Ministry of Defence of Georgia.
