Hey Bob & Neil, take a look, a few more old Aberdeen
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I know, I know
Praga V3S 6x6 truck with 130mm multiple rocket launcher vzor (Mk.) 51.
Both (truck and MLR) are Czechoslovak makes.
I guess this example is/was a war booty from Suez war.


More commonly known as the RM130 Wink

JimWeb, I can not agree with your opinion on abbreviation - there used to be/there is different system in our armed forces.

Example and explanation:
122 mm Raketomet vzor 70 (122 mm MRL Mk.70 on Tatra 8x8 chassis) could be briefly marked as RM 70
130 mm Raketomet vzor 51 (130 mm MRL Mk.51) should be briefly marked as RM 51

The abbreviation consists of weapon abbreviation and "mark" ...
I believe RM130 could be used - but it is NATO abbreviation, NOT Czech one...

RM130 is the original factory cover designation for all types but the designation used by the...

Czech Army - Vz.51
Czech export version - M-51
Austrian Army - M51
Romanian Army - M-51/151 & M-51/157
Yugoslavian Army - Plamen

The Egyptian & Bulgarian designations escape me at the moment and as everyone is uncertain where the aberdeen one came from RM130 would be the correct designation.

Cool

RM130 abbreviation as original factory cover designation makes very nice mess in this field. Mr. Green
There were codes RK-2 (for 130 mm) and RK-3 (for 210 mm) MRL under development in Skoda.

BTW my files say that Yugo PLAMEN (M-63 towed) MRL and PLAMEN-S (M-94 mounted on 6x6 TAM 150 truck) MRL had calibre 128 mm and were based on vz.51 design.

What about Cuban designation for vz.51? I do not know the answer.

I agree Palic - nothing like something that confuses everyone Smile

I had heard of the RK codes but hadn't managed to find out what they were for so thanks for that!

As for the cuban version - I wasn't even aware they used so I'll go through the cuban files later this week and see what I can find.

Cool
