Myanmar Army's (Tatmadaw Kyi) land parade revealed what is likely to be two new weapons: the MAM-03 wheeled multiple rocket launcher and the MMT-40 light tank developed by the Myanmar Army, Department of Defense Industries (DI: Directorate of Defense Industries). The MLRS is now referred to among military analysts as the MAM-03, a new multiple rocket launcher system developed from the 122mm MAM-01. The 240mm MAM-02 was previously in service, Defense Studies recalls. The MAM-03 system has a four-tube 300mm rocket launcher which is understood to be similar to the Chinese WS-1B multiple rocket launcher mounted on a Chinese 6x6 chassis, which is easy to understand, as China is the major military equipment supplier of Tatmadaw.

The A100 family of surface-to-surface rockets developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT) is based on the WS-1 family of systems developed by China National Precision Machinery Corporation (CPMIEC), a state-owned rocket and weapons company, lead the Chinese way. The 300mm A300 surface-to-surface missile has a range of up to 290km, is equipped with a 150kg warhead and is guided by GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and INS (Inertial Navigation System) satellites with a Circular Error Probability (CEP) of 30-45m.
