The BM-21 Grad (Hail) is a direct descendant for the famous Katyusha rocket launcher of the Second World War. The box launcher, housing four rows of ten tubes, is mounted on a Ural 6x6 truck. The BM-21 can fire fin-stabilised 122mm rockets, which can be fitted with fragmentation, chemical, or incendiary warheads, up to 16km (10 miles).

The Soviet Union’s most powerful forces are stationed in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, poised on the border with West Germany ready to strike at a moment’s notice. They are equipped with the very best Soviet industry has to offer, from sophisticated missile firing T-80 and T-64 tanks, powerful T-72 tanks, and tough, reliable, and upgraded T-62M and T-55AM tanks to versatile BMP infantry fighting vehicles, as well as plentiful BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers. Supported by elite Afgansty Air Assault troops, powerful self-propelled artillery there will be little that the corrupt capitalist armies of NATO can do to stop them. Soon the western workers will be free and the dawn of a new socialist age will begin!

Assembling the BM-21 Hail
Tip: When referring to left or right-hand side in regards to a Team Yankee miniature, the orientation is determined as if looking at the vehicle from the rear.
Step 1. Begin assembly by glueing the rear plate to the back of the multiple rocket launcher. Step 2. Glue the crank on to the right-hand side of the rockets.

Note: The small peg fits into the small hole on the side of rocket launcher mount. Below: The crank attached correctly. Step 3. The rocket launcher fits into the rear of the truck. Do not glue it in place, so it can rotate freely.

Because the rocket launcher is so big and heavy, it may be unstable at times. Instead of simply placing it into the hole in the truck bed, you may prefer to use rare earth magnets for improved stability.

Rare Earth Magnets (XX105) are available through the online store here...

These 1mm x 5mm magnets are strong enough to hold the rocket launcher firmly in place.
