The Russian Army has received the latest-generation Tornado-S multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) this year, according to RIA Novosti.
“As for the further development of the Tornado, we now have a new system, the Tornado-S. The first rocket brigade was sent to the armed forces this year, and has begun pilot operation,” Alexander Kochkin, vice-CEO of the Rostec subsidiary Techmash, was quoted as saying at the MILEX-2019 exhibition.
The modernization of the Tornado MLRS to the Tornado-S level was commissioned by the Defense Ministry, he noted.

The system can fire its rockets in a salvo or as individual precision missiles, and has essentially become a universal tactical rocket system. The Tornado-S can also use adjustable ammunition.
