Very large item standing at approx 150cm tall and of heavy weight. Road freight or pick up only. Inert. Rare. Katyusha multiple rocket launcher were built and fielded by the Soviet Union in World War II. (1939-1944 production). Multiple rocket launchers such as these deliver a devastating amount of explosives to a target area more quickly than conventional artillery but with lower accuracy and requiring a longer time to reload. They are fragile compared to artillery guns but are inexpensive and easy to produce. Katyushas of World War II the first self- propelled artillery mass-produced by the Soviet Union, were usually mounted on trucks. The distinctive howling sound of the rocket launching terrified the German troops and could be used for psychological warfare. The rocket's devastating destruction also helped to lower the morale of the German army. Grade II
