The BM-21A system is based on the MAZ-631705 chassis instead of the Ural-375 platform of the baseline Grad system. The upgraded system has shelves for additional 60 rockets and a traverse platform for rocket loading from the shelves. The BelGrad system has received an advanced radio station.

The upgraded system’s speed has grown to 85 km/h (53 mph), endurance to 1,200 kilometers (746 miles), engine capacity to 330 hp and ammunition load to 100 rockets, with 40 of them ready for launch. The system’s full salvo duration is 20 seconds and the number of launch tubes is 40.
