From a variety of sources to include the latest edition of the DEBKAfile news letter we have details of a new Russian [Syrian??] multiple-launch rocket-system [three tubes] firing an artillery rocket round of immense size and destructiveness.
An artillery rocket round the warhead having the destructive power and force of a tactical nuclear weapon!!
1. "Russian heavy Golan-1000 rocket launchers for Assad, Kalibr cruise missiles off shore"
With special regard to the Golan-1000:
" . . . Military sources in Moscow also revealed that the Assad regime's 4th Armored Division had received heavy rocket launchers deliberately dubbed Golan-1000, which can deliver 500mm caliber rockets [20 inch] loaded with 500kg [1,000 pound] of high-explosive fragmentation ammunition. They have a range of up to 6km and are capable of knocking over IDF [Israeli Defense Forces] fortifications on the Golan"
GOLAN-1000 DELIBERATELY NAMED TO SIGNIFY THE INTENDED TARGETS ISRAELI TROOPS CONCENTRATIONS AND FORTIFICATIONS LOCATED PROXIMITY THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.
2. "Syrian Army Roll Out New Secret Golan-1000 Rocket System"
"Built on a T-72 tank chassis, the new rocket system has already been put into service with the Syrian Army's 4th Armored Division and participated in its counter terrorism operations throughout the country."
"Presumably called the Golan-1000 out of reference to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the new rocket system carries three massive 500 mm [20 inch] rounds, each packed with 500 kg [1,000 pounds] of high-explosive fragmentation ammunition."
MOUNTED ON A SOVIET/RUSSIAN T-72 TANK CHASSIS. THE SHORT-RANGE MLRS REQUIRING PROTECTION FROM COUNTER-FIRE!!
That 500 kg. [1,000 pound] warhead primarily if not exclusively so a thermobaric round!
EVEN PERSONNEL HAVING COVER IN HEAVY FORTIFICATIONS AND PROPERLY PROTECTED AGAINST CONVENTIONAL MUNITIONS AT DANGER FROM THE THERMOBARIC DETONATION!
