Russian state-run Tecmash defense enterprise (part of Rostec) is looking for possible partners for its project of advanced small-caliber multiple launch rocket system.

Tecmash will soon present its project of an advanced small-caliber multiple launch rocket system soon, Tecmash Deputy Director General Alexander Kochkin was quoted as saying by TASS Wednesday.

"We have drafted a blueprint of this system and will submit this proposal to the Defense Ministry soon," he said.

According to earlier reports, Tecmash plans to create a robotized small-caliber multiple launch rocket system to be used by special forces, naval infantry and airborne troops. The system is intended to destroy targets on the ground and in the air, including helicopters and drones, at the distance of 1.5-2 kilometers and the altitude of below one kilometer, the agency report stated.

The yet unnamed system, featuring the possibility of remote control, will use both special projectiles and unguided 50-80-millimeter rockets that are already in service with the Russian Armed Forces.
