Prime Minister Hasina Wazed also said that the service’s modernisation would continue under the ‘Forces Goal 2030’ initiative, which outlines a range of major acquisitions to modernise the Bangladesh military.
Chief of General Staff of Bangladesh, General Aziz Ahmed, had announced that Roketsan’s TRG-300 Tiger Missile System would be delivered to the Bangladesh army by June 2021.
As a result of the delivery, the Bangladesh Army Artillery Regiment’s range has been moved forward with the TRG-300 Tiger Missile System, reaching 120 km maximum.
The photos shared by Ops Room at the beginning of June 2021 showed the Russian Kamaz 65224 chassis 6×6 carrier vehicle and RoketsanTRG-300 Tiger Missile systems. Each launch vehicle in the T-300 system carries four launch tubes, each capable of firing Roketsan TR-300-series projectiles, including the 4.75 m-long TR-300E unguided rocket. The number of acquired systems is not disclosed.
The system can fire the TRG-300 Tiger missile, which comes in two variants – Block I and Block II (Enhanced Warhead Dynamic Effectiveness) – with the first one having a range of between 30 km and 120 km and the second one of between 20 km and 90 km.
According to Roketsan, guidance for both TRG-300 variants is provided by GPS and aided by an inertial navigation system. Both missiles feature aerodynamic control with an electromechanical actuation system.
TIGER Missile can be launched from RoketsanTigerMulti Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) Weapon System, MCL (Multi-Caliber Launcher) Weapon System and other platforms with compatible interfaces.
