This upgrade package was not available at my local dealership.


GoodShitBrain

Because this would automatically increase the value when you drive off the lot.


sergeTPF

this is only available on the toyota hilux

I need one of these for the next time someone honks at me.


h2ohow

The courage and resourcefulness of the Ukrainian's is an endless source of admiration.


314rft

Any and everything to destroy Russia's army as much as possible. Using Russia's own gear to eliminate Russian soldiers is honestly morbidly beautiful and poetic.

Bah, you beat me to the 'technical' comment.


SlavaUkraina2022

Anyone know what kind of rockets these are? Only rocket pods I’ve ever seen on Ruzzian helicopters were circular, unless you count Vikhr, but that’s laser guided, which makes it a missile.


LefsaMadMuppet

S-80 rockets. There are ground launch vehicles developed for them on the market. Example: [https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/2020/05/13/c6a4f6d2-f94b-4b98-b2d8-08b07c5e7486](https://www.janes.com/defence-news/news-detail/2020/05/13/c6a4f6d2-f94b-4b98-b2d8-08b07c5e7486)


SlavaUkraina2022

Well, I would have expected rockets like this. But the pod is what puzzles me, as I have said in my post. I do not recognize the pod as being a launch system in use by Russian helicopters. There are S-80 rocket pods developed for the usual suspects (Ka-50, Ka-52, Mi-28), but I have never seen the pod on this vehicle on a helicopter, the post says it’s a rocket launcher from a downed helicopter, so what exactly is going on here?


LefsaMadMuppet

The pods are just a bunch of tubes in a framework with an igniter (electrical) They probably just disassembled the tubes and mounted them on a new frame. This was once probably a B8V20 pod (common to the KA-52)


SlavaUkraina2022

This seems plausible. In such a case I still have issues with the wording of the post title, “installed a rocket launcher from a downed helicopter” seems quite different from disassembling and reassembling tubes and building their own frame. For the last part they should receive the proper kudos for all this MacGuyver work they’ve put in!


_pm_me_your_btc

Your comments here are exactly what I was thinking, interesting to see anyway!


Harry_Buttock

This one's more A-Team than McGyver, I think.


BigJoe5504

But unlike the A-Team, the U-Team actually kills the enemy.


Pyehole

How do they have any idea where those things are going to land?


Tau_of_the_sun

I think this is more of a "keep them guessing and hiding" weapon. Probably just firing into and behind enemy lines to keep them dancing. they may kill a couple, But the effectiveness is the constant fear more than a direct attack.


SlavaUkraina2022

Maybe even to draw out their counter-arty so that they can counter-counter-arty. That would be funny as hell.


Tau_of_the_sun

I think that its best use is in conjunction with a drone, If they are hiding in the woods somewhere this may make them scatter and move about , revealing their position so arty can drop by and say hi!


OverClock_099

yeah I'm interested too, gonna start a war next week and could use some of those


mexheavymetal

DIY Katyusha! Homemade is ideal but store purchased works well too.

Truck would have been much larger in Texas.

3500 or F-450 diesel with a lift kit.

photofool484

I’m curious how the targeting works.


Maelarion

"They're over there."


NN11ght

"Fire in that general direction"


Kriggy_

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laying Basically, you know where they are, you know where you are. You set up correct angle based on this and set elevation based on the distance. In the essence its a basic trigonometry. Ofc, the calculations are more complex and doing them by hand must be pain but there are computers that do that for you including stuff like wind speed or whatever... You shot one shell. Someone is watching where the impact is and tells you for exaple " 50 meters to west". You correct your angle based on this information. Then you can either shot one more to check how your correction worked or you fire whole salvo to destroy them


photofool484

Oh.... I know how to FO and run a TACP.( Marines). I’m just more curious in the engineering side of how they solved the targeting problems because this unit is recovered from a helicopter.


BigJoe5504

Spray and pray????


Dunkersplay

The old way. A spotter and a gunner


kaisersozeks

There are drones. The soldier sitting on the field is seeing on the monitor.


usolodolo

Even with modern day drones, armies still heavily rely on recon soldiers to help coordinate attacks.


JohnSV12

I really want to know that


Psychological-Sale64

Have them horizontal and race into the thick of them. Lay down a smoke screen first.


photofool484

I’m thinking in terms of plotting the missile trajectory, flight time and point of impact.


Jhe90

Hit that area, in that direction.. The physiology impact remains though and will keep Russians constantly on toes digging trenches for cover.

Toyota should do a commercial for how well their vehicles fare in warfare.


Ok_Bad8531

They have since decades a reputation of being versatile low budget combat vehicles, especially in desert climates. I doubt they need any commercials at that point.


traveler19395

That’s a Mitsubishi But you’ve proved the point that Toyota doesn’t need to make that commercial because they already gotten for free the broad assumption that pickup trucks in war zones are all Toyota Hilux


LightweightProper

Definitely a Twisted Metal worthy character right here


raunchypellets

Low rent Minion.


SuperKing37

BTW they're making a twisted metal tv show


ffdfawtreteraffds

Ukrainians just returning the stuff the Ruzzians left behind. Seems fair to me.


WigglingForChristmas

I want my local Toyota showroom to stock these.


traveler19395

That would be weird if your local Toyota dealer was stocking that Mitsubishi pickup. Also weird if they were stocking rocket launchers…


SCROTOCTUS

Ukraine's ability to adapt pretty much anything in this war has been crazy. And it's not some hack-job shit like the Russians tying logs to their vehicles - it's 3D printed mortar tail fins and mounting rocket launchers from a helicopter in the bed of a Nissan truck to the extent it looks like a factory add-on. I wouldn't be surprised if Ukraine figured out how to turn ordinary rocks into hypersonic missiles.


apprenticeasskicker

Easy: put the rock on the top of a Z tank turret, and then launch the thing into orbit


SilentMaster

The 2A people in America are going to love this shit.


CMDRRaijiin

That's the secret upgrade package for the Toyota Hilux after a 20 kill streak isn't it?


texican1911

Right before tactical nuke


techieman33

I wouldn't generally consider getting a Mitsubishi in exchange to be an upgrade. But maybe the rocket launcher is worth it.


wombatncombat

Ukrain on that whagggg. If it weren't for the Russians I would say they should paint that wagon red (to go faster of course).


apprenticeasskicker

Electric blue would look sweet…

Installing that rocket launcher in the back of a pickup must have been quite "technical".


BenthicBen

this might be the most technical technical so far

I pity the fool you gets into a road rage with that truck.

I would much rather face a road rage incident with this than one with the standard dushka on the back.

Ok_Bad8531

Funny how ukrainian makeshift combat vehicles look to be in better shape than many of Russia's military vehicles.


innocent_bystander

HIMARS, or Hilux - both work well lol


hamburger_bun

out of curiosity, with rockets like this is there some way that they're able to pick a target with these? or are they just shooting them in the general direction of the enemy (i honestly have no idea)


sathzur

The first rocket fired is a ranging shot, a spotter then tells the crew how far off it landed, they adjust for this and fire the rest while adjusting for enemy movement


techieman33

It's basically a rocket propelled mortar. So you have to do a lot of math to figure out where it's going to land. Then hopefully you have a spotter or drone that can tell you how close you were so you can make adjustments.


kofolarz

Fits like a glove!


jesuschristthe3rd

I though this was taken in suburban Texas.


Myllari1

Ok now this is pretty badass!


Selahadin

These Ukrainians..... give them some bamboo, and some duct tape, they make a mortar ....


the-ugly-potato

The Ukrainians must know how to fabricate. Ive see videos of middle east pickup trucks with rocket launchers shake and rattle. The rocket launching just is so violent on the roughly fabricated trucks. Ontop of that. The back blast is often large and can fill the cab with flames. This Ukrainian pickup is extremely stable. And no large flaming back blast Which means while Ukrainians are being resourceful and DIY wepons. They aren't being sloppy. Toyota should donate some trucks. They did well in the middle east. Haha

That's it! I'm trading my Amarok for the L200 Rocket Launcher Edition


wolfgang784

I wonder if the Ukrainian government will try to collect all these guns and commandeered military vehicles and rigged launchers like the one above after they (hopefully) win. They are allllll over at this point, and I wonder if all the citizens will be willing to give up their weapons after being invaded. Bit curious to see how that goes.


HenryMillerEsque

I just hope they are well aimed.


ThermionicEmissions

Ukrainian volunteers can do that, while Reddit devs can't even make a video player that works. I'll just close my eyes and imagine the rockets launching.


Fickle-Accountant-95

So Red vs Blue was wrong, you can have a pick up with a rocket launcher
