Norinco SR5 universal missile system

Seems basically like a knock off of the Korean K239 Chunmoo, which is itself a 12 shot HIMARS / wheeled M270 MLRS.

I dont think they copied the Korean MLRS , in any case its the payloads and firecontrol that make the MLRS these days , in addition to palletized reload vs manual or round-per-round reload of soviet designs.

On the other hand new Chinese  CETC definetly looks like a straight up copycat  of TB2 grin

Polish RGP-40 'Milkor' style grenade launcher in action (with full size rifle as sidearm, dashing my hopes for Krinkov PDW becoming widespread.)

It seems Korea is the only one with the real industrial capacity to make weapons in mass. It practically manufactures more than the whole of EU combined and much of the gear is more recent development than what is availible in europe , its even on brink of fielding a 5th gen fighter and its also Ready to do localised licencing deals and probably also competitive in terms of pricing.

But its kind of amusing to watch the charades by the Poles that pretend to buy American, with signing letters of intent , run press conferences etc .only to then buy in Korea  , Tanks, Artillery, MLRS, Jets, Nuclear powerplant

Very rare and cool vehicle. I wish some of those had made it to the US. Humvee style with Toyota reliability, yes please.

Whatever the cost, would be worth it. Toyotas are the best technicals after all.
