Iraq shows off latest Russian weapon acquisition: TOS-1 Rocket System

(Iraq) The Iraqi Government showed off the TOS-1 heavy rocket system as the latest tool in which to combat ISIS today. Which at the end of the day is a rocket launcher on top of T-72 tank chassis. While the Iraqis fawn something stupid in better weapons technology, I find the ability and the will to fight a much better tool. Anyway, the TOS-1 first saw the light of day in Afganstan in 1988 and has the ability to lob a 220mm rocket 6,000 metres. The Iraqi TV spot can be found at the link above, but a far better video of the TOS-1 in action can be found below.
