   The Oganj 2000 ER artillery rocket system was recently developed in Serbia by the Yugoimport-SDPR. It is a state-owned defense company, founded in 1949. Currently this artillery system is being proposed by the Yugoimport for possible customers.

   The Oganj 2000 ER artillery rocket system is intended for unexpected and rapid strikes against enemy troops and non-armored vehicles. This system features high firepower, long range, high operational and tactical mobility.

   The Oganj 2000 ER uses a modified version of the Oganj-S 122-mm launcher. It has 50 launching tubes for 122-mm rockets. It can fire standard rockets of the BM-21 Grad, as well as newly developed Grad-M and Grad-2000 extended-range rockets. These rockets were developed by the Yugoimport-SDPR and are fully compatible with the older BM-21 and similar 122-mm launchers. The Grad-M and Grad-2000 rockets can be fitted with HE-FRAG or cargo warheads. The cargo warhead contains dual-purpose bomblets, effective against both manpower and vehicles. A standard HE-FRAG rocket is 2.88 m long and weights about 69 kg. Warhead weights 19.1 kg. Maximum range of fire is 27.6 km with Grad-M rockets and up to 40 km with Grad-2000 rockets.

   A standard version of the Oganj 2000 ER has manual aiming controls. Optionally it can be fitted with a fully-automatic laying system. Launching vehicle is fitted with a GPS unit for automatic positioning. It may posses a Serbian fire control system. Vehicle has ballistic computer with automatic or manual data input and firing elements computation.

   Rockets are launched directly form the cab or remotely form the vehicle. The Oganj 2000 ER can fire single rockets or full salvo. A crew of three prepares this artillery system for firing within 3 minutes. It leaves firing position within 1.5 minutes. Brief redeployment time allows to avoid counter-battery fire.

   The Oganj 2000 ER launcher is mounted on the Russian KamAZ-63501 cross-country truck with 8x8 configuration. It is heavier, but offers more payload capacity than the previous vehicle. This military truck is fitted with a central tyre inflation system, which is controlled from the cabin. The Oganj 2000 ER has an operational temperature range from -30C to +50C.

   This multiple launch rocket system has a reloading device, similar to that of the RM-70. Normally it carries 50 rockets in the launcher and a full set of reload rockets in reloading devise. It is automatically reloaded in less than 2 minutes. Launching tubes can also be reloaded manually within 10 minutes. While travelling the rocket launcher is covered by hydraulically operated canvas cover, which makes it hard to recognize, as vehicle looks like an ordinary heavy utility truck. Also it protects the launcher from adverse weather effects.
