   The Orkan CER multiple launch rocket system was developed by the Yugoimport-SDPR, a Serbian state-owned company, founded in 1949. It is a recent version of the M87 Orkan. Currently it is being proposed for possible customers.

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

   The Orkan CER has a newly designed artillery section with eight 262-mm launching tubes. It is capable of firing 262-mm rockets of the older M87 Orkan. A standard rocket is 4.85 m long and weights 390 kg. Warhead weights about 90 kg. A HE, HE-FRAG, thermobaric and cluster warheads with 288 dual-purpose bomblets, or 24 magnetic sensor-fused anti-tank mines are available. A standard rocket has a range of 50 km. An extended range rocket is 4.88 m long and weights 404 kg. Warhead of this rocket also weights about 90 kg. It has a maximum range of 65 km.

   A standard version of the Orkan CER is fitted with manual aiming controls. Automatic controls are optional. Launching vehicle is equipped with a GPS unit for automatic positioning. Rockets can be launched directly from the cab or up to 80 m remotely from the vehicle. The Orkan CER is capable of launching single rockets or full salvo.

   This artillery rocket system is based on the Russian KamAZ-63501 8x8 cross-country truck. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system, which is controlled from the cab. This artillery rocket system has operational temperature range from -30C to +50C.
