ARMOUR-MUSEUM--SANDSTONE BANNER

Katyusha Rocket Launcher

 

One of the more interesting items in our Military Vehicle collection is our Katyusha Rocket Launcher, not so affectionately known as a Stalin Organ.  These were lethal weapons which the Germans came to fear because of their deadly effectiveness on the Eastern front during the German invasion of Russia.

 

Sandstone has one in its collection which is probably an immediate post-war model but which saw service in Angola during the South African-Angolan conflict.

The Katyusha rocket launcher was a highly mobile method of delivering a surprise

saturation bombardment of over 4 tons of explosive over a relatively small area.

 

If you've never seen one close-up or ridden in one then that opportunity might well arise during Stars 2015 - for a taster of Stars 2014 click
