The BM-30 is a multiple rocket launcher, which is the Soviet's counter to the M270 MLRS. It is primarily designed to shock a wide region of land, but can also destroy soft-skinned targets and buildings.


For an important price, this unit can be a game changer in team games, 2v2 and above. The BM-30 is the strongest MLRS in the game with decent accuracy, concentrated fire will damage and stun even highly armoured units. Use it at vehicle or infantry installations to shock them or at stubborn, static units. However, it's ammo consumption and reload times are its major downsides. Also, if the enemy shoots artillery to counter them, they can't hit anything.


The BM-30 was designed and manufactured by the Russian Company Splav State Research and Production Association, Tula, Russia, which also manufactures the Uragan, Grad and Prima rocket launchers. The BM-30 Smerch 9A52 wast first seen by the West in 1983, and it entered in the Russian army in 1987.

The BM-30 Smerch 9K58 is designed to counter tactical missile systems, army aviation at staging airstrips, as well as rocket, artillery and mortar battalions and batteries, command post, and manpower concentration areas. A Smerch unit is typically composed of six launchers and six transloaders. Now it is used by Russian, Ukraine, Belarus, Kuwait, and United Arab Emirates, Indian and Chinese armed forces.
