Soldiers of the 10th Mountain Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine began to beat the invaders with Czech RM-70 Vampire rocket launchers.

The military released the relevant video on the brigade's Facebook page.

"The boys didn't want to sleep, they went to the Grad field," the fighters captioned the video, implying that the Czech "Vampires" are a modern analogue of the Russian Grad jet system.

It should be noted that the RM-70 Vampire rocket launcher systems arrived in Ukraine back in April and are already being actively used on the front lines.

About RM-70 Vampir

The 122 mm RM-70 multiple rocket launcher system was developed in the former Czechoslovakia. It was produced in 1971-89. In service - since 1972. In fact, it is a copy of the Soviet BM-21 "Grad". The Tatra T813 Kolos (8×8) is used as a chassis. It can use unguided missiles: both Soviet (9M22 and 9M28) and others.

After the collapse of Czechoslovakia, the private Czech company Excalibur Army continued work on the RM-70 122-mm multiple rocket launcher system, creating its modern version called the RM-70 Vampire.
